One of the best things you can do for your health is drink a green smoothie in the morning. The amount of energy you feel in the morning from drinking a green smoothie is great. You don’t have to worry about feeling sluggish like you do when you eat eggs, toast, bagels, or anything else heavy like that.
I’m a huge fan of Batman, and in Batman Begins, Bruce Wayne is seen drinking a green smoothie when he gets out of bed. After he chugs it down, he drops down and does a quick set of push ups. After watching that, is it any wonder that Batman can take out of the bad guys?
Let me first start out by saying that a green smoothie does not taste bad. It can if you don’t put in enough fruit, because the green leafy vegetables have a distinct taste that, I’ll admit, don’t settle all that well with your palate in a liquid form. Although, I think Batman would chug it down no matter what. He is that tough.
Also, making a green smoothie in a Vita mix is the best way to go. The Vita mix is a high powered blender that will liquefy anything you put in. Other blenders will leave chunks of this or that, but the Vita mix blade has a high powered motor that prevents this. If all you have is a regular blender, that’s okay, but just know that you might be eating your smoothie instead of drinking it.
How to Make the Batman Green Smoothie
I can’t tell you if Alfred made it like this for Bruce Wayne. The end product looks similar, so let’s just pretend it is the same. I do everything in a particular order so that the ingredients on the bottom have the best chance of getting blended without leaving little chunks. The stuff on top blends easily, so no worries about chunks there. You can always change up the order, as well as add or subtract ingredients. It’s up to you. This is just what I’ve found tastes the best.
1.A big handful of ice cubes
2.A big handful of spinach
3.1 big kale leaf, or 2-3 smaller leaves depending on the size
6.2 cups of grapes
This is tough if you don’t have a Vita mix, just because you can mash down all the ingredients so that you can get everything blended properly. I use grapes and an orange because, honestly, it was my wife’s idea, but also because they liquefy easily and add sweetness to it.
Drink up and enjoy. Batman would be proud.
