Eduard’s Green Smoothie (breakfast of champions)

So, I had a question on our facebook page regarding a recipe for a green smoothie. I thought, “well, I can just direct them to my blog for a green smoothie recipe”, but was shocked (no appalled) to see not a formal green smoothie recipe in sight!

Oh my!

So although I had other things to take care of in this moment, I dropped everything to try to remedy this situation right away. Here is a fabulously spontaneous and totally yummy green smoothie that I made with “what was in the fridge” when my friend Eduard came down for a visit. : )

Eduard’s Green Smoothie (breakfast of champions)

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk (add more if you need)
  • 1 fuji (or other kind of) apple, chopped
  • 3 leaves kale (I like the dino or Lacinato the best)
  • handful spinach
  • about 6-7 leaves Romaine lettuce
  • 3-4 honey dates (or Medjool)
  • juice of 1/2 an orange
  • pinch ground cardomom
  • small piece fresh gingerroot
  • 1 tsp. extra virgin coconut oil
  • Optional: scoop high quality protein powder and/or 8-10 raw cashews

Put all the ingredients into the Vita-Mix (ideal, but you can probably do an OK job in a regular blender)* and blend on high until smooth. If the dates are kind of hard, it can work really well to soak them before blending.

Now pour the gorgeous concoction into a beautiful glass, sip slowly and enjoy the buzz!

* The Vita-Mix IS most definitely an investment, but sooooo worthwhile. I put it off for years, burned out blenders, enjoyed slightly “chunky” smoothies, then finally made the leap. I never looked back. : ) It pulverizes produce (and other ingredients) to such a fine degree that makes them more digestible and helps release all the phyto-nutrition. It also makes velvety smooth concoctions using ingredients that a regular blender could never touch. Ok, that’s the Vita-Mix plug for today. Use my link and you can get free shipping ($25 value).
