Healthy Green Smoothie - Vegan MoFo 2013 Day 2

Here we are on day two of the Vegan Month of Food. Yesterday I shared a HowDo about making Raw Almond Mylk because it's delicious, healthy and an ingredient that is often used in the preparation of raw food dishes.

I'm going to be featuring raw vegan recipes here throughout September. If you'd like to be notified about my blog posts, subscribe to my blog by submitting your email address in the "Follow by Email" box in the right hand column, just under the Vegan MoFo icon.

I'd also love to connect with you on my Veganosaurus Facebook Page, Instagram and Twitter.

I'd like to thank everyone who has been watching my HowDo videos and encouraging me to make more of them. They're definitely going to be incorporated into many of my Vegan MoFo posts this month to make the recipes more interesting, fun and easy to follow.

In some cases I'll have a HowDo video as well as a text version of the recipe. But for easy, simple recipes where it's more about the method and not the recipe itself, I feel typing out the recipe isn't necessary. In those cases I'll just embed the HowDo clip here and save myself some time and effort. ;)

Raw Green Smoothie

Today I have a basic Healthy Green Smoothie recipe to share. Pretty much everyone makes smoothies these days, so a smoothie recipe is nothing novel. But a month of raw food recipes just doesn't seem complete without at least one or two smoothies in there. :)

The recipe below features my favourite components that go into most of my smoothies. Of course, you can switch around the ingredients and tweak the quantities to your liking because it's a very, very adaptable recipe. If you can get your hands on Cooking Camphor aka Pachha Karpura, I highly recommend you adding a tiny pinch of it into all your smoothies. Takes things to a whole new level of yum!

Once again, the recipe is in the form of a step-by-step HowDo micro guide. Enjoy! :)

    1. Thanks. :) I like to put a bit if turmeric into most of my dishes and especially raw foods because it has natural anti bacterial properties and lots of health benefits.

  2. That's awesome, Susmitha! I love the ingredients, especially the mix of greens.

    1. Thanks Annie. :) I used those particular greens because they were growing in my little kitchen garden. It feels great to put freshly harvested stuff into smoothies! :)

  3. Ok, I ***MUST*** try this because of the turmeric!

    1. Lindsay, I tend to put a pinch of turmeric in all my smoothies. It has natural anti bacterial properties so it's just a safety measure since there are those raw greens/veggies in there. Plus, it has other health benefits and also adds a dash of colour in there. :)
