I had a quart of green smoothie for breakfast… STILL not hungry (9 p.m.)! Mixed greens, arugula, sorrell, cilantro (all from my garden), 1/2 avocado and a banana. Liquified thoroughly – enjoyed tremendously!!!

Hello everyone! I’m new to this group but wanted to share my Yummy Green Smoothie idea. I use frozen peaches, strawberries & raspberries then I add fresh mango, honey, water and cilantro. Sooooo refreshing! If anyone likes this let me know what you think

My daughter and I did a green smoothie demo at our local grocery store here in College Place, WA. The breakfast Fruit smoothie is what I think the people liked the best. My husband even likes it too. (Cause he can’t see the green.) The recipe is:
1/2 Banana, 1/2 Apple, 1 slice Pineapple, 1/2 Orange, 3 dates 2 Tb Flax seeds , 1 TB Dulse, 1 lemon slice, 1 Cup mixed berries, 1/2 C. Fz. cranberries, ¼ Oat Bran, 1 Tb sunflower seeds, 3-4 Lg Kale or chard leaves.
I drink 5-6 cups of that every day. My husband drinks only1 1/2 cups. Thats better than nothing.

My favourite green smoothie is 1 Tbs Macadamias, 2 Organic Dates, 1 Small Organic Banana, Spinach Leaves and a bit of water – I make it thickish and eat it like a soup – yummy

1 big organic mango (with skin!), oranges and a handful of radish leaves – mmmmmm!

My favorite blended green soup: 1 bunch parsley, 1 large tomato, 1/2 bunch scallions, juice from half a lemon, half a dozen green olives, sea salt to taste! Add water if you prefer to drink it. The taste was based upon my husband’s favorite tabbouleh recipe. Maybe try adding half a bunch of mint instead of olives for a 100% raw smoothie.

Cool off with this drink over ice. I call it:Green Julep or Raw Mojito (use lime)
Use fresh ingredients:
2 sprigs of mint 3″ long
1 handful of wheatgrass
2 apples cored and chopped
2 fresh squeezed lemons (juice) or limes
small handful of any greens: lambs quarter’s, dandelion, lettuce
4 cups filtered water
1 tsp. Matcha Tea Greens powder
Maple syrup to taste 2-3 TBSP
Blend all in a blender, strain through a nut-milk bag. Pour into a pitcher with more whole mint leaves and ice. Serve ice cold with at least one mint leaf in each glass! So refreshing. I am making ice cubes with the mix so it doesn’t get diluted on these hot days. Of course you will need to adjust amounts, especially the mint and maple.Enjoy!
