I know I know.. Green smoothies look so yucky and scary to you. They did to me too a while back, and that is exactly why I have attached the before-and-after photo on this post (that, and come pretty is the before-pic anyway - fruit is such an amazing creation of God that I simply cannot comprehend how can it get any better in Paradise..mashaAllah really) 

It IS possible to enjoy whole food meals that transform your body from the inside out. 

Here are the very simple rules regarding the smoothies you are about to make:

  • Has to contain a leafy base 
  • Fruit/Berries
  • A liquid base 
  • Optional Fancy Toppings 
 Green smoothies are:
  • A natural energy booster 
  • Aid natural! weight loss 
  • Allow you to stay healthy all-year-round
  • Full of antioxidants 
  • Best.Fast.Food.
I challenge you to take part in this challenge for your own sake, bismillah!  

 Here is one recipe to get you started:

You will need:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups of mango 
  • 1 banana 
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 2 cups of water (can be milk of choice or even better - coconut water!) 
Everything in to za blender. 
Serve right away.
Serves 2 (in my case, 1).

Can not wait for you to hashtag #teamhealthyeslimah and share your creations with me and sisters around the world! I am so so so happy like a little teenager. Why? Because so many of you have joined the health-team ALL AROUND THE WORLD, and wallahy, I feel like it is uniting us even further. God is uniting us by such a good cause! It's not like we are all getting together to...I don't know. Collect Sniker Papers. We are actually trying to make a positive difference and be more healthy and take care of ourselves! Today on IG I read a sister post, how instead of taking the bus, she decided to walk instead, as she remembered our health-challenge. She wrote how she was smiling and giggling the whole way, and all I was thinking was...I WOULD DO THE EXACT SAME THING. Sometimes when I am walking home, and there is noone around, I pretend to be a soldier or a bear or a ballerina, and do the appropriate walk/dance and slide home. I imagine she didn't do something as stupid, but the fact that she felt happy about the change in her life, and being part of such a loving sisterhood...made me so happy as well. Like many of you say, you do not have an ummah in the physical realm around you, and the online-based-sisterhood is the next best thing..And I feel the same. And actually. It is not the 'next' best thing. It is THE best thing. Ever. To. Have. Happened. To. Me.

Alhamdulillah ala kulli haal ya rabbi al-alamin.  

Share the recipes and share the love and stay healthy!

Your Eslimah

  1. Earlier it was the case with me!! I hated green smoothies, but when I came to know that I can make health Green drink with fruits also, I started having it daily. It really acts as a energy booster and it helps me in losing my body fat.
