    • 3 large leaves of Green or Purple Kale (stripped from stem)
    • 3 Stalks of Celery
    • 1 Medium size Zucchini Squash
    • 1 Cup of Broccoli Florets
    • 1 Heaping tsp. Organic Coconut Oil
    • 2 Small Lemons - remove the peeling and retain the seeds and pith
    • 1 1/2 to 2 cups of liquid mixture (see variations)
    • 1 Tbs. Kelp Granules or Dulse Flakes
    • 1 Medium Carrot
    • 1 Small Bunch of Flat Leaf Parsley
    • **Optional - 1 to 2 droppers full of Liquid Stevia Extract to taste remembering that it is super concentrated!
    Wash all vegetables and fruit.

    Prepare vegetables for your powerful blender.

    Starting with the liquid mixture, place all or part of the ingredients in the blender and blend until the mixture is nice and smooth. If you like to add your ingredients a bit at a time that will work as well. Add more liquid as needed.

    I usually get about 5 cups of mixture when I am through. When all done, I divide my drink into 3 tall glasses and refrigerate what I don't drink. It is probably best to make sure you drink each batch within a 24 hour period to get the most out of your vegetable mixture.


    Vegetables - Use 3 to 5 organic and fresh green vegetables such as - zucchini, broccoli, kale, spinach leaves, celery, lettuce, cucumber, mustard greens, turnip greens, cilantro, bean sprouts, carrot top greens, etc.

    Oils - I like adding a bit of oil to my green smoothie recipe as it helps to curb the appetite and some oils have certain health benefits. It is not a requirement and is one ingredient you can easily eliminate if you so choose. An alternative to Organic Coconut Oil would be using half of a small ripe Avocado.

    Liquids - You can mix your liquids to include some of the following - Unsweetened Kefir water, Unsweetened and Alcohol free Kombucha, Coconut water (natural or fermented is preferred), Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (1 to 2 Tbs. or to taste), Organic Unsweetened Apple Juice, or Filtered Water. I like that the Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar helps to balance the overall recipe and lends a slightly 'salty' taste to the mixture.

    Sweeteners - Some prefer their green vegetable smoothies to be sweeter than do others. The Now brand Stevia Extract Sweetener (see below) is the only natural sweetener that I know of that actually tastes good while being good for you. Just be sure to start out with a few drops as it is very concentrated.

    Alternatives to using Stevia would be using a bit of Fresh Organic Fruit such as an Apple or Fresh Organic Unsweetened Fruit Juice as part of your liquid. I would start with a little and experiment as it might not take as much as you think to sweeten your recipe.
