I am trying to add more greens to our diet and one way I have started doing that is by adding green smoothies to our daily routine.
Let me say I am neither a raw foodist or a vegan, however, I like to try new things and branch out a bit in life.
Below are some of the recipes I have tried from the book Green for Life by Victoria Boutenko or her website.
My personal favorite:
Valya Boutenko’s Green Smoothie:
Handful of spinach leaves
1 apple with core, no stem
½ mango (peeled)
½ pear (cored)
Strawberries with tops
½ cup Water
Blend well. Add kiwi and strawberry to edge of glass for garnish.
Sergei Boutenko’s Green Smoothie:
Couple strawberries with tops
5 kale leaves
4 very ripe kiwis (green or golden)
1 ripe banana
3 stalks of celery
2 cups water
Yields: 1 quart of smoothie
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/4 lb spinach
1 orange (peeled)
1 cup water
and this smoothie is from the Natural News website and was delicious too:
Be sure to rotate your greens and don’t get stuck in a rut using the same veggie everyday.
There are a few of her “savory” smoothie recipes I would like to try. I will post them here as I try them.
Give it a try! They really are pretty good.
