I received free product from Truly Radiant to review.
As much as I love summer, I have to admit that having all four of my littles home All. Day. Long. can be trying. They have so much energy and it seems to grow and bounce off one another that sometimes I feel like I need 4x the energy just to keep up with them! If you are like me and are always looking for healthful ways to get your energy up (or back!) and boost your radiance throughout the day, then you will love the recipe I am sharing today for my Energizing Green Smoothie. It is chockfull of healthy veggies and fruits and I would say that drinking one of these (which helps me get my vitamins and other vital nutrients in my diet) along with making sure I make time for myself to get to the gym or go running with friends, are important ways in which I try to live radiantly… even in the summer!
This recipe contains Kale, Cucumber, Celery, Lemon, Pineapple, and a bit of Ginger and all together they make one heck of a smoothie that keeps me going! I tend to make one in the afternoon (or sometimes for lunch!) when I feel like my energy is waning and I just need healthful boost to get me through until dinner. Here is what you will need to make your own:
- 1½ cups water
- 1 cup frozen pineapple pieces
- ½ cucumber
- 1 cup kale, washed
- 1 lemon, peeled and de-seeded
- 1 stalk of celery
- 1½ inch piece of ginger, peeled
- Place all ingredients, in order, in the container of a Vitamix or other strong blender. Blend for 1 minute at high speed or until smooth.
Make sure to wash all your fruits and veggies prior to blending them! Also, I don’t peel my cucumber but I do peel my ginger and lemon. I try to de-seed my lemon as much as I can but sometimes there are just too many seeds to deal with so they get blended too! And you can use fresh, frozen, or canned pineapple, just try to get the frozen or canned variety without added sugar! I always add my water first and then continue placing the rest of the ingredients on top. Place the cap on the container and blend away until nice and smooth!
And as much as I really love to feed my body and work out my body to feel radiant, I also can really appreciate products that will help me feel radiant too – like the new ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ products which give you a white smile in just 5 days* (and who doesn’t want that!). (*Data on file.) The line includes their ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Manual Toothbrush, ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Rejuvenating Toothpaste, and the ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Whitening & Strengthening Rinse. You can find them in drugstores and grocery store nationwide.
The ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Whitening & Strengthening Rinse is probably my favorite because it is the first and only rinse that whitens teeth, strengthens enamel, and prevents stains without alcohol or peroxide.
