My Favorite Green Smoothie Recipe

This is my favorite Green Smoothie Recipe. It’s part of my daily routine & has become foundational to my health. And, it’s not too hard of a habit to develop. If you drink this daily – you will have more energy, get sick less frequently & your cravings will vanish.

stuff you will need:

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 scoop protein (try Sunwarrior vanilla or MRM veggie protein)
  • 1 banana (peeled)
  • 1 orange (peeled)
  • 1 small piece of pineapple
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 10-12 sprigs parsley
  • 10 or so dandelion greens
  • â…” cup broccoli
  • 1 leaf – red chard
  • 1 leaf – collard greens
  • 1 leaf – kale
  • 2-3 cups spinach
  • 1 small slice of ginger root
  • a few small mushrooms is great, too!
  • 2 cups ice

what to do with the stuff:

  • place all stuff in your Vita-mix
  • turn on (blend until smooth)
  • put ice in at the end so it gets cold.

NOTE: *You may have to experiment with the amounts of liquid, ice and produce to get the consistency that you like from your blender.

This will make a full 64 oz. Vitamix blender full. Pour it into two 32 oz Mason jars & stick in the fridge. They will taste great for a couple days. By day 3, it will get a little funky. Always best fresh!

Try using smoothies as snacks. Drink one mid-morning between breakfast & lunch. Then drink another one mid-afternoon between lunch & dinner. Not only will it curb your appetite, it will keep you energy level consistent & give your immune system a huge boost!

P.S. Don’t be afraid to start with just the fruit & some spinach. That’s a great starting point. Then, slowly over time, add another veggie & another one, until you eventually get up to this whole pitcher.
