Do you remember a few years ago when Apple Martini’s were all the rage?
Although I’m not much a drinker I’ve had a few in my lifetime and, like any alcoholic drink it leaves me feeling worse in the long run.
So, this really isn’t anything like the Apple Martini but this Apple-Tea-Ni will leave you much Smarter & Sexier than any mixed drink filled with God knows what that gives it the green color….
What’s Smart & Sexy About This Smoothie?
Green Tea–-Green tea contains less caffeine than coffee but enough to produce an effect. AND….it contains the amino acid L-theanine, which is thought to work synergistically to improve brain function.
Green Apple--Studies show that the pectin in apples provides our bodies with galacturonic acid, which lowers the body’s need for insulin…, which is instrumental in helping manage diabetes.
Ginger–Ginger is known to improve the absorption of nutrients, which is great since we are what we eat…and even more importantly, we are what we absorb.
Celery—Celery is apparently good for your sexy life! Dr. Alan R. Hirsch, the Director of the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation says that two pheromones in celery–androstenone and androstenol–which are released when you chew celery, boost your arousal levels. I’m guessing when they are blended in a smoothie it would do the same.
