Hi Gena,
I regularly smoothie it in the AM, and am happy to see you’ve added to my recipe collection. I have a favorite I would like to share:
8 oz. rice milk – or almond, hemp, etc.
2 – 4 oz. coconut water (opt.)
3 – 4 tbl sp. hemp protein powder (I love Trader Joe’s vanilla flavored)
1 -2 tbl sp. flax (TJ’s roasted flax with blueberries is a winner here)
1/4 tsp. Vitamin C powder (opt.)
1/4 to 1/2 c. frozen blueberries
broccoli sprouts – small clump
*Optional, seasonal ingredients:
fresh blackberries, raspberries, etc.
Blend all ingredients – I add that 4th tablespoon of hemp for a thicker smoothie and/or more frozen blueberries for more intense flavor
Warning: You WILL have to immediately brush your teeth with this one due to seeds and flakes…so, not a smoothie to take on the run unless you have a supply of floss readily available!

Thanks for your web site.. still learning heaps about being a raw vegan. Went totally cold turkey and straight onto raw vegan juices over 8 days ago.. Feel fantastic. wish some one had got me onto this before now. The whole family is on it and doing well other than the boys having a few cooked vego meals. We were a normal meat and spud family who had take out three times a week with no vego style foods to now being vegan. everyone has lost weight from 1-6kg and looks and feels great. Im off all meds and pain killers for my knee injury that has plagued me for over 12 mths even after surgery.. so I say bring on the juice of life!!

Hi I’m just starting to explore raw recipes and I love your website. Thank you for all the wealth of information. I am having a lot of trouble accessing the recipes. They all come on line super slow and sometimes not at all. It’s not my computer. Thank you again!

Thanks Lee! Is it just the recipes that are taking a while to load, or all pages on the site?

Thank you so much,
Tracey a “newbie”
