Give your tastebuds a treat and try this Blueberry Celery smoothie! It is a surprising combo of Yummy Goodness and Good Yumminess! A flavor burst that will feed your brain and help your body with any water retention.
Celery - clean and organic, if possible. Two small to medium stalks
Blueberries - frozen and organic. As many as you like to sweeten the celery
Agave (optional - to further sweeten if you desire)
Whir it up, drink it up, soak up the nutrients! Celery is a natural diuretic and Blueberries - oh, so good for the brain!
As always, you can sweeten any smoothie to your liking by adding a bit more of whatever fruit you're using. It's a great way to adjust the taste for your tongue. And, of course, there's always agave. This plant-based sweetener will sweeten without raising your glycemic index!
Enjoy - Peace & Green Eating! Slendie

Rich, Thick, Delectable
and oh, so...
This is crazy easy and fabulous enough, delicious enough, incredible enough to serve to dinner guests!!! I tried this recipe from another site, but altered it slightly. Clean up is easy - just rinse the blender! This makes about 4 servings - cut recipe in half for two servings.
Place in a blender:
Avocados - 2 ripe, or nearly ripe
Warm Water - 2 cups, one per avocado (warm, not hot!)
Lime - squeeze]
Cocoa - 1/4 cup (then add depending on your taste buds)
Sugar - start w/ 1/8 cup, then add according to your taste
Agave - Squeeze in to taste (add more of this and less Sugar for a richer, yet healthier option)
Vanilla - 1 tsp. (add according to taste - coconut extract also works, but use less)
Whir it in the blender until smooth and creamy! Indulge! For you non-Vegan's, a dollop of whip cream. DO NOT WORRY - this does NOT NOT NOT taste like avocado! It tastes rich and chocolaty, with an undertone of banana (go figure!).
Hope you try it - it's totally fabulous!!!

More magnificent rawness... STRAWBERRY BREEZE
We've had a friend of my son's staying with us for the last week and I've been experimenting on them with some new Green Smoothie recipes! I love to try out new ideas and flavors to see what combos work and are most tasty - especially to my son and his friends. Here was one of the kid's faves! (Popeye never had it so good!)
1 to 1 1/2 cup frozen STRAWBERRIES
1 cup frozen MANGO
1/2 cup fresh baby Spinach
1 Celery stick
squeeze of Agave (to taste)
Cover the 1st three ingredients with water and whir it up until smooth. You may need to add a bit more water if it's too thick. Drizzle in a bit of agave, depending on how sweet you want it - can also add a splash of apple juice if you like. Delicious, Pink and Nutritious! This will cool off the hottest summer day!
Peace & Green Eating!
