Low Carb Green Smoothie

Here is a recipe for a delicious green smoothie that is lower in carbs and sugar then a traditional green smoothie.

The entire smoothie contains approximately 5.5 g. net carbs and 29 calories.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup of peeled and diced granny smith apple [3.5 g. net carbs]
2 ounces of a cucumber (peeled and de-seeded) [2 g. net carbs]
A small handful of baby spinach (this is about 6 spinach leafs and has only a trival amount of carbs)
6 ice cubes
1/2 cup water

Directions:
Combine all of the ingredients and blend very well.
I drink this “as it”, but if need be you can sweeten it with a small amount of crystal light or any sweetener of your choice.

I make a similar version of this smoothie for my kids.  It contains more fruit and spinach however.  They love it! You can find the recipe here:

I make this smoothie in my Magic Bullet Blender.  I have had the same one for 6 years and love it.  It is great for smoothies.  I like it because it is so easy to clean.

I weigh my ingredients using this Biggest Loser scale.  I like this scale because you can put a plate on it, zero out the weight and then get the weight of just the food on the plate.
