One of our newest (and not surprisingly, most popular) additions to the La Costa Marketplace is the deliciously healthy Green LiveWell Smoothie. This tasty and refreshing healthful drink went through quite a few iterations, being perfected by the passionate and talented dining team at La Costa Resort – headed up by Executive Chef Marc Therrien.
Recipe for La Costa Resort’s LiveWell Green Smoothie:
- 3 Cups Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
- 2 Bunches Swiss Chard
- 5 Cups Fresh Spinach
- 5 Sprigs Mint
- 10 Basil Leaves
- 1 Green Apple, Cored
- 2 Pears, Cored
- 1 Crown Broccoli
In a blender, pour in Orange Juice and slowly add the rest of the ingredients. Blend very well. (If it’s too thick for you liking, add a bit more Orange Juice to thin out).
Serve and Enjoy! *For full La Costa effect, find a hammock next to a beautifully-scented flower patch, sip, relax, and repeat!
