Drinking green smoothie just make me feel good. It is like comfort food, it is so nourishing.

This is one version of what I put in my Vitamix. You can create endless variations, using different greens, fruits and supplements.

I like to add cilantro to my smoothie. Cilantro is delicious, fragrant and among the most healthful herbs. You either like it or hate it.

    Hi! Great sounding recipes! Just a question…when you say to use a lemon with the outer lemon peeled away-what does that mean exactly? :) Thick part is still used? Thank you!

    I have to go on a fruits/veggies only diet for a week prior to a surgery. This looks like it would fit the bill. How many servings does this recipe make?
