A low glycemic, super-food infused, healing and alkalinizing smoothie recipe perfect for all the green smoothie drinking green goddesses out there! Added to the green power of cucumber and romaine there is the addition of spirulina and barley greens powder, as well as a hit of herbal medicine from maca and the Chinese herb he shou wu.
