How can I be afraid of something so cute? But I want these greens sautéed. Raw scares me and I had my husband try and got YEAH ITS GOOD when I wrote the ebook. Now I give the challenge to you. Come to @skinnysmoothies on twitter and tell me how it goes. I’m the @giantsweettart but that where I talk something AND ribaldry.
Bok Choy Pineapple Cucumber Green Smoothie
Bok Choy is also known as “Chinese cabbage” and is a bitter green somewhere in taste between older kale leaves and dandelion greens. Coconut water and pineapple adds sweetness and just a teaspoon of sesame oil adds richness.
2 stalks celery with leaves, ends trimmed and cut into chunks
1 cup pineapple chunks or frozen, no-sugar added
½ cucumber, seeded and cut into chunks
1 bananas, peeled and cut into chunks
Coconut water or water, as needed
10 bok choy leaves
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1-2 tablespoons chia or ground flax seeds
- Add the celery stalks, pineapple, cucumber and banana, to the blender. Add coconut water or water to cover. Blend until smooth.
- Add the bok choy, oil, chia or flax seeds and additional liquid to cover. Blend.
- With the motor running, drop in the ice cubes one at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
