Baby spinach or kale
A wedge of lemon
A simple and easy smoothie to blend up with some of the above ingredients and cold water and ice cubes, sweetened with honey or stevia. We use this Magic Bullet Blender and wash the fruit with this easy Expandable colander strainer basket. It is also so important to use some great knives and if you on the go or a working person then take this lovely Portable Blender for Shakes and Smoothies.
Honey is a potent source of iron, copper and manganese. When these elements are combined they aid in hemoglobin synthesis. Honey is therefore a powerful weapon against anemia. View more remedies and recipes that use honey. HERE
A small amount of kiwi and lemon is used. Yet grapes are at least half a cup full with the greens being the most in this smoothie. (not all the ingredients in the image is in the smoothie)
