Tropical Green Paradise Smoothie

June 26, 2013 2 min read

Leafy green vegetables are the most common missing foods in modern diets. Incorporating dark, leafy greens into your diet is essential to establishing a healthy body. They are full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Leafy greens help your internal rainforest flourish… they strengthen your immune system, cleanse the body of stored toxins creating an alkaline environment, boost energy levels, help with weight loss, purify the blood, and give you glowing skin!

In my opinion, green smoothies are the perfect breakfast.  They are an amazing way to start your day off healthy (I mean, who's in the mood to sit there and chew 3 cups of spinach and kale for breakfast? Definitely not me!) and if made with enough greens, they provide energy to sustain you throughout your morning.

Here’s a recipe that’s loaded with greens, but still tastes delicious and is perfect for the green smoothie newbies out there!

Tropical Green Paradise Smoothie

Ingredients:

5 large Kale leaves 3 cups Baby Spinach 2 large Collard Green leaves ½ Banana, frozen 1 cup chopped Pineapple, frozen ½ cup chopped Mango, frozen ½ cup Raspberries, frozen 1 cup Coconut Water or Purified Water Directions: If you don’t have a powerful blender (I love my Vitamix), first blend greens with coconut water then add in fruits and blend until smooth and creamy!

Tip- When your bananas are very ripe; peel them, chop in halves, throw in plastic bags and freeze to make your smoothies creamier!

*When possible, use organic! 

Try this smoothie out and in the comments below, let me know how you like it... and most importantly how you FEEL after drinking all the green goodness!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
