Robyn’s Green Smoothie Template Recipe
I've been following Robyn Openshaw's Green Smoothie Girl blog for years. This recipe for her basic green smoothie is highly adaptable. It is delicious, filling, and will give you a big boost of nutrients and fiber to start your day energized. Robyn’s Green Smoothie Template Recipe Makes 8 cups of 100% raw smoothie. Put 2 1/2 cups filtered water in the BlendTec Total Blender. Optionally, add: ½ tsp. stevia (herbal sweetener) or ¼ cup raw, organic agave nectar (low glycemic index) ¼ whole lemon, including peel (anti-skin cancer, high in flavanoids) 2-3 Tbsp. fresh, refrigerated flax oil (omega-3 rich oil) Gradually add greens until, briefly pureed, the mixture comes up the 5-cup line (or less if you are “converting”): ¾ to 1 lb. raw, washed greens, added up to 5 ½ cup line: spinach, chard, kale, collards Puree greens mixture for 90 seconds until very smooth. Gradually add fruit until the container is very full, blend 90 seconds or until smooth: 1-2 bananas 1-2 cups frozen mixed berries any other fruit to taste: pears, peaches, apples, oranges, apricots, cantaloupe, mango, pineapple Make a full blender and you’ll have some to drink, and some to share.
