Raw Vegan Green Smoothie Breakfast

Updated on January 5, 2013
5 stars from 1 rating of green smoothie

Ultra-fast, healthy and simple

I believe the best food is the simplest food. You've probably noticed something called, "green smoothies" becoming popular lately -- and for good reason. The world is finally starting to understand that we have amazing, fragile, little bodies that deserve the best care we can give them. Upon this realization, an interest in clean food has emerged.

Green smoothies don't need any recipes, this is a loose guideline that I recommend you hardly follow. These recipes are what I do; I want you to make up your own, but I understand you need to jump off from somewhere. For beginners, a good ratio to keep in mind is that green smoothies are 60% fruit and 40% leafy greens. After a while, your taste buds will re-sensitize themselves to flavor other than salt, sugar and oil and you'll be able to fluctuate the ratio of fruit to greens to use more greens.

I've included three separate smoothie recipes below.
