Green Apple Limeade Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz collard greens
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 pear - chopped
  • 1 green zucchini - chopped
  • 1 lime - juiced
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Pumpkin seeds are not only full of fiber and heart healthy Omega-3s, they’re also a fantastic source for the minerals zinc and magnesium. Pear and zucchini are wonderful sources of fiber as well, and collard greens are bursting with vitamins A and C, calcium and iron. Add in some lime for a pop of citrus and applesauce for more fiber and sweetness, and you have a nutritionally complete smoothie that will power you through your workout, that two hour meeting, or just a day full of running around and getting things done.

Love pumpkin seeds? Try our Orange Cranberry Calm smoothie, or our Pineapple Peach Mint smoothie.
