I wanted a smoothie with spinach so I put a few things together. When I was finished it reminded me of a Reese's peanut butter cup, which I loved many years ago. It wasn't the flavor I was going for, I just got lucky!
I'm now on detox (after Christmas' abuses...) and I WANTED to eat that so delicious carrot and caramel raw cake in the fridge... So I decided to create a caramel Green Smoothie to undergo that craving! My husband, who loves smoothies, (but not the greens ones!) told me, after tasting: "Oh... you can make me THAT kind of green smoothie..." Victory!
Our delicious recipe for a Green Smoothie! We sure enjoyed this Green Smoothie the other day...it was the first time we tried using Broccoli in one. It turned out so well that we decided to pass it on to you.
I also came across a fabulous idea....ever thought of a "Green Smoothie Leather"? Sounds like a great treat for travelling. Here at Suede Hills http://www.suedehills.com we are always on the look-out for making our Raw Food journey as easy and tasty as possible. Enjoy!
This green smoothie can help rehydrate you after a workout and feed your hungry muscles with some clean, highly digestible protein.
Kale is included in this recipe because it is considered (by some) to be the most nutrient dense dark green leafy vegetable. I consume kale very often for this reason.
I do rotate my greens as recommended, but I bring kale back into the mix rather quickly.
If you enjoy kale or want to start including it into your diet, consider this raw kale chip recipe (video). It is a delicious nutritious snack.
This nutrient dense post workout smoothie contains protein, healthy, complex carbohydrates, fiber, antioxidants, and essential fats. Enjoy!
A good beginner's smoothie, especially in winter when citrus is abundant - and not too many other fresh fruits.
