So bump up the ingredient quantities if needed to meet the needs of your own unique body. Any suggestions to replace it for breakfast? Don't expect it to be sweet—it's not. With tofu cooked in homemade enchilada creamy cashew sauce that tastes like queso. I love being creative with veggies since I tend to not get enough of them in my diet. I still enjoyed this and was surprised with this recipe. Thanks for your delicious recipes and for sharing your knowledge.
I am a smoothie fanatic and this one has won my heart as well! I love fruit smoothies but I find they too can sometimes contribute to digestive woes for me. This one seems not to at all. You are so right about sugar free foods changing your palate.
I have been eating a low sugar diet for a couple of weeks now and already I can genuinely say I do not crave sweet foods any more. This recipe is a great one to try. I just made this for my husband and me. I have been searching for a smoothie recipe like this for a while. Thank you so much! I tried for the first time today. Next time i may add some parsley as well. I also use a black bean protein powder from Shaman Shack called Morning Jing, and added a couple tablespoons.
I also love ginger so may add some more of that. Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this!! Are you sure eating large amounts of fruit will spike blood sugar levels? All one has to do is buy a glucometer cheap, I believe and check their blood sugar after ingesting the fruit. I see where some people blame fruit for their digestive distress. Could it be that fruit is not the cause of the problem, but highlights the already-existing condition? Would like to hear some thoughtful responses from viewers, not just what they want to believe.
I eaten an obsessively organic diet for 20 yrs and I cannot handle a lot of ANY sugar, natural or not. I realized I had stopped making green drinks when my blood sugar got out of control because I had always put apple and lemon in them.
I decided I had to come up with some good drinks with little to no fruit. This one is a great start! By the way, my health problems were all caused by gluten damage leading to yeast over growth and nutritional deficiencies, not junk food or obesity.
Dave, eating a lot of sugar does absolutely raise blood sugar. Also, eating lots of carbohydrates in other foods such as white flour breads, pasta, rice etc. Whole wheat and other whole grain options also raise blood sugar, but much less than the white flour counterparts. I live alone and have no one to share it with.
I eat 32 oz every morning. I make a full pitcher which is basically double the recipe that I have posted. I make mine thick and eat it out of a bowl with a spoon. I think I ate oatmeal and cereal for too many years. I find this bowl and spoon method comforting in the morning. I refrigerate half and have it the next morning.
Add as much water as you like to find the consistency that is appealing to you. They are really yummy! These are just so nutrient dense. You are awesome, Brenda! Thanks for sharing your knowledge and wisdom with us! I actually came here to check your recipes. I am reading the book and I am already tired of my smoothie combinations!
Thanks for your kind words Martha. Keep trying different green smoothie recipes until you find one that you love. It is an adjustment but I really look forward to mine in the morning now.
I read in the comments you store half of your 64 oz mixture for the next day … it made me wonder if that diminishes the nutrients in a significant way? I have been doing it this way for the past 17 months and my health and vitality are the best I have experienced in the last 30 years. I find it is a bit of work to make and when I was really sick this just made it easier. The taste is still really good I find. I never used them myself but some people still use them. Thank you so much for sharing your journey to health.
You give hope to those of us who are searching for healing. Hi Dana- We use the Jupiter Melody water unit with the alkalizing feature turned off.
It does a very good job of removing chlorine and other impurities. It has a biostone filter. The pulp helps to keep me full and satisfied. The fiber also cleanses the bowel and helps with blood sugar control. The pulp is delicious and I love eating my daily smoothies. You can play around with the ingredients and find a recipe that you really enjoy.
This is the easiest way to get this volume of vegetables into the diet each day. Once you feel the difference of eating a daily green smoothie you might get hooked like I have. I often eat a few boiled eggs on the side to add some extra protein. Comfort in a piping hot bowl of chowder with basil, sweet potatoes, and a mix of white and yellow corn. Classic Italian Tiramisu without any of the eggs or dairy.
