An energizing green drink that has Slim ‘& Sassy essential oil in it to provide a satisfying and natural appetite controlling beverage. If you love smoothies, you will love this FREE webinar for making healthy smoothies the whole family will love!
By now you guys probably know how much I love drinking a smoothie in the mornings. It is one of my favorite ways to start the day, and it is even better when it has lots of good for me stuff in it.
I recently started trying out dSlim & Sassy® essential oil made to manage appetite between meals, which for a food blogger like me is a big deal. I am constantly snacking.
This oil is a blend of grapefruit, cinnamon, lemon, peppermint, and ginger essential oils, and you are supposed to take 3-5 drops of it 3-5 times per day. The problem for me is I don’t love how it tastes in water. I much prefer a wild orange or lemon oil in water. So I was trying to decide how to incorporate it in my day without taking it in a gel capsule, since I don’t love swallowing pills. This smoothie was my solution.
Not only does it have the Slim & Sassy to help manage hunger and calm my stomach, but it also has a ton of really great foods. Like avocado, which offers a healthy fat. Spinach, which is an excellent green, and a great antioxidant. Oranges, which are an excellent natural source of vitamin C, and more. This essential oil blend offers its own host of benefits while being calorie free, sweetener free, preservative free, and all natural
I call it my Slim ‘n Energizer green drink. I make a big old blender full in the morning, and then drink it throughout the day, especially when I need a pick me up or something to satisfy a craving.
To make it a quick and easy on-the-go solution, as my life is always busy, hectic, and on-the-go, I simply put it in these mason jar mugs, and screw the lids on, that way it is already portioned out for me, and I can give it a quick shake and drink whenever I need to!
I like this combination as there is no one predominant flavor, and it kind of masks the strong flavors of the oil. But you can adjust it to whatever best fits your personal preference.
- 1 orange peeled
- 1/2 avocado
- 10 strawberries
- 1 cucumber peeled
- 1 banana
- 1 green apple
- 1 mandarin orange
- 3 lettuce leaves
- 2 1/2 cups green spinach
- 1-2 cups frozen mango chunks
- 3-5 drops Slim & Sassy essential oil
- Water and ice as needed/desired
- Put everything in your blender and blend until smooth
- Add in 1-2 cups frozen mango chunks and additional spinach to achieve a richer green color
- Blend until smooth
And remember, Slim & Sassy is a great addition to a smoothie, but other oils also work well, so try another fruit oil, or give this Wild Orange Colada a try.
