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.
