green ocean of life

Thought of those words after I poured this smoothie. They're always this beautiful but I HAD to show this one. How can you not want to become this?! It's an ocean of nutrients and vitality!

Check out my post on the power of green smoothies here

Green Smoothie: makes about 4 cups

1 peeled lemon
1 peeled orange
3 cups dino kale/rainbow chard
1 frozen banana
2 cups water
pinch of stevia
half cucumber
handful of cilantro
chunk of peeled ginger

Blend it up and absorb the energy!

    if i only have enough money for one raw food kitchen essential... which would you recommend...

    food processor?

    1. well, the vita-mix is pretty expensive - you might have to save up. so i'd recommend buying a food processor in the meantime.

  3. This is super yummy! I opted out from the grapes & put some fresh pineapple instead. It was like a tropical green paradise in my mouth!

  4. Do you drink all 4 cups? Because I definitely do!! So delicious! :)

  5. Hehe, awesome! I decided to go vegan this month, and I've fallen in love with the simplicity this lifestyle! Anyways, I'm so happy that I found you today. I really admire your work!! You're simply amazing at what you do!! Thanks for sharing your gift with the world!


  6. I just made this and I guess my blender sucks because there are small chunks of kale so I am like chewing instead of drinking hahaha besides that it actually tastes really good. ( mine looks like a frozen mojito because of the chunks of kale hahah not so rich and creamy and smooth like yours :'( ) And I used the Diamond blender that it is supposed to be really strong and blah blah blah... might need to switch to a vita mix :)

  7. Emily, what Vita-Mix do you use? I want to buy one to make nut cheeses, nut butters,and juicing. I have so many bad experiences with food processors and blenders..... Thanks :)

  8. Emily, this looks delicious! Can I use regular kale for this since I don't have dino kale? Will it dramatically change the taste?

  9. @Katie Brown - Use any kind of kale you like :)

  10. WHat can i use instead of rainbow chard. i cant find it in my country and i dont know what it tastes like so difficult to know wht to substitute it with

  11. @Nana - use any other dark leafy green :)

  12. Hi Emily! What len's do you use :)
