Green Drink

Posted by

This tastes like a GARDEN IN A GLASS.  A fantastic way to start the day or a great mid-afternoon drink to boost your energy! Using a Vitamix rather than a juicer creates a fiber-full drink!  Add 1-2 inches of cold water to the blender to start the process – you need some liquid to liquefy all the veggies.

Serves 4

Add organic ingredients into the Vitamix or other strong blender (not a juicer):

  • 4 large kale leaves or 2 cups baby spinach*
  • 2 large celery stalks
  • 1” fresh ginger, unpeeled
  • 2 cucumbers (remove peel, if not organic)
  • 2 pears, remove stem and prickly butt
  • 1-2 broccoli stems
  • handful of cilantro
  • ½ large lemon


Any greens* youhave on hand are fine – Trader Joe’s has a mixture of kale, Swiss chard, and spinach – rinse well.

Experiment with any herbs you enjoy.

Adding carrot, beet, or berries will make the green drink sweeter, but will turn the color brown.

 To increase protein:

  • protein powder
  • nuts
  • seeds
  • almond, peanut, or cashew butter
  • Greek yogurt or Kefir (dairy)
  • Carnation NF dry milk powder (dairy)

To increase fiber (the drink is extremely fibrous, so your really shouldn’t need more):

  • psyllium
  • ground flax seed
  • wheat germ

*wheat grass makes the drink bitter
