Green Smoothies…

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

1 banana

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:

½ mango

1 banana

Couple strawberries with tops

5 kale leaves


Blend well.

Kiwi Enjoyment:

Blend well:

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

Blend well.

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.
