Happy New Year!!!

I hope that you enjoyed a fitting farewell to 2014 and joyful welcome to 2015!  I’ve been enjoying the holidays with family, and haven’t been as consistent with my semi-raw vegan practices (and obviously terrible at blogging), but starting this week, I’m back on it!  I’ve been having my breakfast smoothies, though.  So, I offer my recipe for a basic breakfast smoothie in this blog posting.  Of course, you can change the type of fruit and vegetable, but overall this is how I make my shakes.

Basic Green Smoothie (makes enough for two servings)

1 cup Almond/Coconut milk
1/4 cup aloe juice (whole leaf)
1/4 cup cactus water
1/2 green or yellow apple or pear
1/2 orange
5 green grapes
4 small kale leaves or a handful of spinach
1/2 avocado
1/4 lemon
1″ slice cucumber
1 mint sprig
2 parsley sprigs
1/4″ ginger
1/8″ turmeric (VERY strong flavor, but super healthy, optional)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
1/2 scoop wheatgrass
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 Tsp local honey

Adjust liquid to your taste and texture preference.  Put everything in blender.  Blend.  Drink!  Yummy!
