Drink Your Greens

Following a healthy lifestyle can cause a few problems getting in enough green leafy vegetables. So the trick is to drink them in a smoothie. Now the rawfood community calls them Green smoothies, but Dr Fuhrman refers to them as Blended Salads. That sounds a bit off to me so I will stick with the title smoothies. Whatever you call them, they are basically the same thing.

My Winter Smoothie

3 frozen bananas
1 ripe pear
1 peeled orange, roughly cut in pieces
1 handfull of greens
1 cup of filtered water

Toss all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

Some people put cooked beans in them and I have been told it makes a nice and smooth tasting drink and surprisingly not beany at all.

I love green smoothies and have taken to adding lots of fresh herbs to them for the "greens". You don't need as much, of course, because the flavor is so intense, but so is the nutrition! Have a fun day :)

My goodness, I'm so silly! I just posted the wrong address to my blog!!! It's!

I posted it because I have some smoothie recipes (as well as other Raw Vegan recipes) on my blog that you might enjoy :)
