Basic utensils

Do you have a loved one or a friend that is diabetic, or has health complications? Know that there is always hope! I have been checking out Doctor advices on YouTube and Google, and they seem to share one common message: eat a lot of vegetables. But, it doesn't have to feel like a chore to indulge into such a recipe (although the process of making it may take some work!). Today I'm going to share my latest recipe discovery.

A couple basic kitchen utensils (or equipment) you'll need are:

Knife (to peel the Avocados & Apples, to slice the Lime for juicing)

I gathered the following ingredients for this smoothie, which I used per blender fill:

1/2 a Kale bushel (fills the blender quickly -- it is rich in Vitamin K)
1 Cucumber (I sliced it into 4 pieces -- great for hydrating the body)
1 Avocado (takes some careful focus to peel out -- it is great in Vitamin E content)
1 Granny Apple (its fruit is lowest in the Glycemic Index -- special shout out to Edward Trainor for the recommendation)
2 1/2 Limes (rich in Vitamin C, adds to taste).
1-2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon (helps lower the blood sugar levels)
1 Spike of Stevia sweetener (One Doctor article mentions that it's the safest sweetener out there)
1 1/2 cup of Purified Water (or any water of your choice)

1 small piece of Ginger could also be added, too. About a fingerprint in size is good enough, since adding more could make it bitter.

Grind for 1-2 minutes

The blender will sometimes act tricky when it's time to grind the Veggie smoothie recipe. I found that I had to tilt the blender while grinding, but my friend James Chumley (whom people know as "JC"), says to "add a little more water" for the grinding to take effect. Optionally, you could add crushed ice for the best refreshing results.

And now, you're ready for a treat!
