- Combine the lime juice, ½ cup water, the collard greens, mango, and grapes in a blender and puree until smooth, about 1 minute, adding more water to reach the desired consistency.
Been so busy that I haven’t been posting up much of my smoothies lately, but no doubt they’re still a daily must have for me. I don’t follow specific recipes anymore but from making so many I have a better idea of what goes well together and the consistency and texture I want from blending certain ingredients. It’s also less costly if I’m not having to buy so many different types of fruit.
Here’s one from this morning!
Avocado (my favourite ingredient in a smoothie, makes it extra thick and smoooooth)
Healing Turmeric Latte
"Instead of the usual coffee, tea, or sugary hot chocolate, I’ve come up with this healing frothy latte incorporating immune boosting turmeric and astragalus root (an ancient chinese root herb often used to improve immune function and increase energy). It’s creamy, delicious, and a brilliant way to boost your immune system.”

Peach Ginger Mint Green Smoothie
This fresh, summery smoothie will quench your thirst and rejuvenate your cells! My ingredients veer a little from the smoothie ingredients we typically use. This one makes use of all of the produce (except ginger) you can find at your your local Farmer’s Market or food co-op right now! Since I have a smoothie recipe for winter, spring, and autumn, I thought a summery green smoothie recipe needed to be posted. You can check out our Super Antioxidant Smoothie which does use summer produce (but it’s not green!).
How many of you are in the zone with your workouts? Let’s keep pushing each other to stay motivated!
Here’s a quick health & fitness tip:
Add 1 teaspoon of Turmeric to your post-workout smoothie to aid with fat loss and help improve muscle soreness. I’d suggest buying it fresh and grating it. If not, i’m also a huge fan of the Simply Organic brand at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and most health food markets.
Turmeric is fat soluble meaning it will only absorb into your body properly and give you every health benefit if you include a healthy fat in the recipe! I like turmeric with avocado! Add 1 teaspoon of Turmeric and 1/2 an avocado to your fav smoothie ingredients and drink up within 30 minutes of finishing your workout. Hope that helps <3
P.S. It’s also pretty amazing for cancer prevention, weight control, improved digestion and as a boost for the immune system. Just to name a few!
