101 Green Drink Recipes!

When I first started eating green smoothies, I had ONE recipe that I made religiously. Just getting something that GREEN into me was rather daring! Now I absolutely LOVE my greens and they are a major player in my diet!

My green smoothie guru is Victoria Boutenko http://www.rawfamily.com She teaches that our green drinks should consist of 60% fruit and 40% green.

I have since experimented with adding  wild greens, herbs, and doTerra Essential oils to my smoothies.  It has raised my green drinks to a whole new level! Many people who have objected to the stronger tasting greens like Kale, have liked adding Lemon Essential Oil… they say it helps with the “lawn clippings in a cup” taste, when they are first learning how to love the deeper greens.

By adding herbs and essential oils to my green drinks I have created a powerhouse of healing in each cup. A trifecta of health.

Herbs are the foods that your organs and tissues use to nourish and rebuild, and essential oils are the living medicine that addresses inflammation,  virus’, bacteria, and fungus.

Herbs that I have included:

Red Raspberry tea or Nettle tea for the liquid

Powdered Nettle

Fresh Comfrey Leaf

Mallow

Purslane

Plantain

Dandilion Leaf

Some of the essential oils that I have added (one or two drops is all it takes):

Wild Orange

Lemon

Citrus Bliss

On Guard

Cinnamon

Ginger

Peppermint

Lavender

Basil

Oregano

So here it is! (drumroll)

As promised, my collection of green smoothies! Some are my own, and the rest are ones that I have collected in my journeys. I hope it will help you understand the 60%fruit/40% greens concept. These beautiful green smoothies help you alkalize, and are a helpful tool to breaking bad habits and putting healthy habits in their place.
Enjoy!

Recipe #70

David Wolfe’s Best Smoothie Ever

This drink is created in two parts. First, create a tea. You can either make a sun tea (soak the herbs in the sun, in a glass container with pure water, for 24 hours) or heat pure water (do not boil) with the herbs in it for 20 minutes.

Ingredients to make 1.5 liters of tea

8 tablespoons of pau d’arco (South American herb a.k.a. lapacho; use dried powder or shavings)

3 tablespoons of cat’s claw (South American herb; use dried powder or shavings)

1 raw vanilla bean (diced)

1 handful of wolfberries (dried raisin-like fruit)

Now prepare the base. The base ingredients should be combined in a blender.

Ingredients for the base

20 cacao beans (preferably peeled; yes, this is raw chocolate)

10 raw cashews

3-5 tablespoons of maca (powdered root from Peru)

3-5 tablespoons of Agave cactus nectar (raw sweetener, similar to honey)

3 tablespoons of hempseed oil

3-5 tablespoons of coconut oil or butter

2-3 pinches of sea salt (preferably Celtic sea salt)

2-3 sprinkles of cinnamon

Strain away the herbs and pour the warm tea into the base. Once this has been mixed, blend until smooth. You should have a foamy, warm chocolate drink that will explode every taste sensation!

– by David “Avocado” Wolfe

Recipe #71

Green Julep or Raw Mojito (use lime)

Use fresh ingredients

2 sprigs of mint 3″ long

1 handful of wheatgrass

2 apples cored and chopped

2 fresh squeezed lemons (juice) or limes

small handful of any greens: lambs quarter’s, dandelion, lettuce

4 cups filtered water

1 tsp. Matcha Tea Greens powder

Maple syrup, agave to taste 2-3 TBSP, or a few drops of stevia extract

Blend

all in a blender, strain through a nut-milk bag. Pour into a pitcher

with more whole mint leaves and ice. Serve ice cold with at least one

mint leaf in each glass! So refreshing. I am making ice cubes with the

mix so it doesn’t get diluted on these hot days. Of course you will

need to adjust amounts, especially the mint and sweetener.Enjoy!

Recipe #72

Choco-Maca Milkshake

2 brazil nuts

1 cup almond milk

1 quarter cup dates

2 tablespoons cacao nibs

2 tablespoons cacao powder

1 teaspoon maca root powder

1. Blend on high until dates and nuts are liquefied.

2. Add 1 cup of ice (or more) and blend again until frosty Hot Breakfast Porridge

2 cups chia seeds

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/4 cup coconut milk powder

1/4 cup maca powder

1/4 cup cacao or carob powder or an additional 1/4 cup coconut milk powder

1/4 cup cacao nibs

1 cup goji berries (or dried fruit of your choice)

1 tsp. vanilla beans (inside scrapings only) or 1 Tbs. vanilla bean powder (whole bean ground)

2 tsp. cinnamon powder

1 tsp. himalayan salt crystals

sweetener of choice (stevia, honey, maple syrup, etc.)

Mix everything together in a bowl except sweetener.

Pour into a 16 oz. glass jar and store until you are ready to use.

Mix 1/4 cup of mixture with about 1 cup of very hot water.

Stir well and let sit for 1 minute.

Top with almond milk and your favorite sweetener.

Enjoy anytime of day!
