The lovely emvoneuw has turned me on to the world of green smoothies and I must admit I'm in love, does anyone have any nice recipes?

banana bread smoothie:

very ripe bananans, i like mine almost completely brown, add a couple frozen bananas for a creamier texture
coconut milk
coconut oil
cinnamon - i like lots
vanilla flavored protein powder
himalayan salt
honey or dates
other super foods would be nice too like maca... etc

I was obsessed with this smoothie all summer, i liked adding ice to it then
I cant live out my smoothies, 1-2 liters a day!

My breakfast every morning since a year or so is a green smoothie.

I vary it from time to time.

First i add some fruit:

mostly bananas or oranges

and then some greens:

celery, fennel, spinach, or wild herbs.

fruit and greens in a 1:1 ratio

and then i add

1 tsp spirulina
some ginger (the more the better :D, love that stuff )
and water

but as i said i vary alot, and sometimes put in some dates, kale, cacao beans, carob, pomegranate seeds etc.

Thats another thing i love about smoothies you can do so much with them.

We just made one last night from Victoria Boutenko's collection, and it was great (assuming you like the flavor of beets)!

Beet-y Recipe
7 beet greens (leaves from the stems of beets)
1 banana
1 cup grapes
Blend with water and ice, then drink!

Another good one was:
7 leaves collards
1 banana
1 tbsp ginger
1 pear
2 cups blueberries
Blend with water and ice, then drink!
