‘Green Kick’ Smoothie’

Chlorella is a fabulous microalgae with positive effects on the body and natural, antibiotic substances that protect against bacterial infections. The most common bluegreen algae are chlorella and spirulina. They are actually one cellular, cyano bacteria without a nucleus, and are therefore called microalgae. They differ from the plants on land as they absorb nutrients through the cell wall. Therefore they contain a great number of nutrients, which have unique cleansing and strengthening effects on the body.

ORGANIC INGREDIENTS:
1 avocado
1 tsp chlorella
2 tbs fresh lime juice
1 cup of apple juice
1/4 apple for decoration

DIRECTIONS:
Split the avocado, remove the pit and put the pulp in the mixer. Add the other ingredients and mix. Pour into glasses and garnish with slices of apple. Enjoy!
