Raw Vegan Veggie Smoothie Heaven

I recently posted about the Green Earth Raw Soup that I can eat three times a day, every day in this weather. Well, as luck has it, this weather might just stick around for a little while! So as not to get bored with the same old fantastically delicious blend of fresh veggies pureed into a bowl, I offer a bit of variety!

This week I have tried the following blended varieties:

All the wholesome goodness one can pack in a cup!
Spinach, garlic, avocado, hot pepper
Kale, garlic avocado, carrot, tomato and cucumber
Beet leaf, spinach, avocado, garlic
Kale, onion, garlic, and avocado
(The point is to use what ever veggies you have in your fridge, if you can't tell!)

Basically, throw as much veggies as you can fit into a cup, add a dash of liquid amino, lemon or lime juice and what ever spices you like. Examples include: a dash of vegan Worchestershire, a spoonful of sriracha, chipotle or cayenne. Maybe some curry powder or cumin.... you can toss in some fresh herbs.. basil or even hysop!

Let the blending begin!
I recently started upping my Omega-3 intake by using Flax seed oil instead of Olive oil.

Of course the last step is to blend together with either an immersion blender or a food processor.

While perhaps not the most photogenic meal, it is the best tasting thing EVER!
Top with those raw cashews and a bit of sprouts, and you have the most nutritionally dense, antioxidant rich meal possible!
