I love my green smoothies, but I don’t really like the idea of mixing fruits and veggies together in them. I do like for it to be sweet though. What’s a girl to use? Yacon powder. It sweetens without covering up the flavors. Great stuff. Also super low glycemic for those that are concerned about that.
This is pretty basic and I’m sure posted thousands of times on this page, but I wanted to contribute. In reality, this drink should be consumed at least twice a day on a raw diet, especially if you are ill. It is best to take the drink on an empty stomach and to no eat immediately afterwards. It is best to consume this drink as a breakfast juice, and for an afternoon snack.
*Don’t mind the picture, I don’t have one for this drink so I just posted something I took.

A smoothie in green I call Maca Machine! This smoothie contains a powerhouse of nutrients and is extremely high in potassium – vital to electrolyte function. Maca has been used for hormonal balance, sexual stamina, mental health, clarity and wellness, etc. I have been using it for mental health and seen wonderous results. This smoothie is sweet, filling, nutritious and will GET YOU GOING! Energy to the extreme! This is not a power smoothie, this is a super-cala-raw-alicious-ex-pe-ala-docious smoothie!!! Be daring, get your MACA on!

This is a great smoothie to start off your day. I’m not a huge fan of green smoothies, but I really enjoy this one! Two of the few non vegan things I like to indulge in are raw honey and bee pollen. Bee pollen only for its incredible protein and vitamin content.
When I add it to a smoothie (it goes really well with this one in particular) I usually throw in a tablespoon.
