Green and Purple Smoothies

This nutrient and energy packed meal is the foundation for all healing and maintaining vibrant health.  These whole food smoothies made by grinding the entire fruit or veggie are far superior to any kind of juicing where the fiber or pulp is separated from the juice. Grinding fresh raw greens and fruits exposes more of the plant nutrients to your digestive system for easy absorption.

Into your Vitamix blender place:

1 cored organic apple with the skin

1 or 2 cored organic juicy pears with the skin

1-2" square peeled fresh organic ginger root (optional)

4 ounces ice cubes, plus 8 ounces purified or spring water

Blend on HIGH for 1 minute or until it's the consistency of applesauce.  

 Add 4 cups market fresh organic greens, any combination of:

  • black/dinosaur kale, at least 5 leaves
  • beet greens, swiss chard or collard greens, stems removed
  • spinach, parsley, or cabbage leaves
  • mustard greens or dandelion greens

12 more ounces water or organic pomegranate juice

5 drops clear liquid Stevia Extract (optional)

Blend on HIGH for 1 minute or until smooth.  STORE most of this green base in a 40-ounce stainless steel bottle in the fridge.

Purple Smoothies

Pour 10 ounces of the green base back into the Vitamix. Add 1 cup of frozen organic fruit like Trader Joe's Wild Boreal Blueberries or Cascadian Farms Organic Blueberries (available at Costco), and/or a blend of other deeply colored organic berries. Frozen cherries, blackberries, raspberries, or goji berries are great choices. 

Add 2-3 scoops of your protein powder, preferably whey isolate or brown rice protein. Add some healthy fat in the form of 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil, 1 teaspoon raw coconut oil, or even some avocado. Blend on HIGH for another minute. This turns your green smoothie purple, and it is loaded with rejuvenating, disease fighting anti-oxidants like anthocyanins, polyphenols, carotenoids, and flavonoids.

Repeat tomorrow morning! Mix it up with other colorful fruits and veggies!
