absolutley love waking up and making this drink. It gets me going and ready for a busy day. who wouldn’t want to start the day off with a nice glass of greens? Mmm
I heard about this from our local CSA—it is a lovely, simple idea that I’m excited to try. I also found it on a great recipe site (www.recipezaar.com) that I used to love before going raw. I’ve included it because they added the lemon and because they do have some raw recipes and instructions for making staples (ie spice mixtures). My new favorite site is now of course, Gone Raw, so I’m happy to contribute this here!
carrot juice is nice and sweet, so when hubby complained that his green smoothie was to warm to drink after taking it to work in his thermos and to runny to drink when he added ice cubes, i made carrot-cicles. I have these cool ice trays made of rubber like stuff from ikea( heart shaped- awwww!) and i froze straight carrot juice. no excuses now baby!!!!;)
well this wont set anyones world on fire but one of the things i love about having a great bender like the vita mix is the smoothies i can make out of virtually nothing! its 97 here today, and this tasted sooooo goooood!
This recipe is from The New Soul Vegetarian Cookbook. My sister-in-law gave it to me. I make this drink whenever anyone has the slightest sign of a cold. The ginger BURNS! But your cold disappears. I am starting to make it daily now, with less ginger, since I noticed that an increase in my ginger intake has been clearing out my sinuses!
