Green Almond Zest

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz baby spinach
  • 1 apple - apple
  • 2 oz rhubarb - chopped
  • 1 oz green almonds
  • 3 tbsp almonds
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

With a soft, fuzzy outer shell, green almonds are what the nut looks like before its shell hardens. Tart and alkalizing, green almonds have all the health benefits that regular almonds do (protein, fiber, vitamin E and calcium), and don’t need to be peeled. Just toss them in your blender! While the leaves of rhubarb contain high amounts of oxalic acid (which isn’t safe for consumption), the stalks are completely fine, and contain vitamins C and K, fiber, and beta-carotene. Rhubarb is also one of the lowest caloric vegetables you can buy, which means it’s excellent for weight loss. This low calorie smoothie will not only give your immune system a boost, it’ll keep you satisfied ‘till lunch.

Really enjoy rhubarb? Try this Raspberry Rhubarb Coconut Spritzer Smoothie, or this Spiced Rhubarb.
