Green Smoothies

In all of the readings I have done of raw food websites, green smoothies is the most constant. A green smoothie is an excellent way to start the day. Mine typically contain some combination of the following:

  • filtered water or 100% juice
  • banana
  • majool date
  • spinach or kale
  • flax seed (ground or whole)
  • fresh ginger
  • cinnamon
  • clove
  • all spice
  • agave
  • some kind of frozen fruit (peach, cranberries, blackberries, etc.)
  • whole carrot
I am very grateful that a good friend of mine has allowed me to use her VitaMix on indefinite loan.  I literally throw it all into the VitaMix and it does all the work for me. I will often throw in about four ice cubes just to thicken it up to a smoothie consistency.

This morning meal sustains me for hours. It also has been amazing for regulating my blood sugar.
