I do love pure green smoothies! I am always amazed at how much cleaner/fresher I feel after a very green smoothie vs. a more fruit based smoothie.  If had to choose only one flavour of smoothie from this day forward, there’s no doubt I would pick one of my very green smoothies like this one!! Oh-so-green, oh-so-clean and oh-so-nuriousing!!  Yum!!

AlmostRawVegan.com ~ Thick and Frothy Green SmoothieIngredients:

Yields 2 litres

  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cucumber, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 stalks broccoli, chopped
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 2 inches ginger, peeled
  • 1 lemon, skin removed
  • 1 head kale

Add all ingredients to the blender.  Blend on low speed and gradually increase speed.  Blend on high until smooth and frothy.

    Is this one serving (one meal) or do you split it over a couple days?

    1. Hi Kristen – this recipe made 2 litres. How much I have will depend on the day. If I’m having Green Smoothies all morning I can easily enjoy the full 2 litres and that may even carry me over until early afternoon. On the other hand, some days I will only have 1/2 litre before my lunch salad. We are all different, and each day can be different. So listen to your body and if you are still hungry have more, if you aren’t have less 😉 You can store any leftovers in the fridge in a jar (but fill as close to the top as you can to ensure minimal air is in the jar – it’s the air that will oxidize the smoothie which reduces the nutritional value) – but you can store in a jar with a tight lid and drink later the same day or the next morning. Sorry, a long response to a quick question 😉 Let me know if that helps or if you have more questions xox

    Pure greenness. The green smoothie challenge was a huge success on my blog, but I have to admit I lost nearly all my regular readers during the challenge. Funny how blogging works….

    1. That’s true about how blogging works….there are many surprises, I find it so fun & interesting 🙂 P.S. Your Challenge was amazing, I loved your pictures and everything looks so easy to make and so simple to follow!! Bravo Somer!!
