Cool Smoothies

Cool Raw Smoothies

Get  into internal spring cleaning with naturally cool, cleansing raw foods. Ingredients should always be fresh, organically grown and, of course, eaten raw. Drinks have the benefit of rapid assimilation of nutrients and break down and flush out toxins quickly, as well as provide a lubricant for the body.


Rather than shock your body with one of those health-fad cleanses, drinking  raw, fresh vegetable or fruit juices feeds your tissues with rich, cleansing nutrients in a gentle and delicious way. 

Frozen Avocado Shake
1 apple (1/4 cup juice)
1/4 cup mashed avocado
1/4 banana, mashed
1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
1/2 cup unsweetened soymilk
1/2 tsp. pure almond extract
1 cup ice

Juice the apple. Set aside 1/4 cup of the juice.

In a blender or food processor, combine the apple juice  with the remaining ingredients, and blend for 2 minutes, or until smooth. Serve immediately.

Date Shake
1 cup soy milk
12 pitted dates, chopped
6 almonds
1 cup plain yogurt
4 ice cubes

Blend together until smooth.

Peachy Cherry Juice
6 apples (1-1/2 cups juice)
3 peaches (1 cup juice)
1/4 cup frozen pitted cherries
1 cup ice

Separately juice the apples and peaches. Set aside 1-1/2 cups of the apple juice and 1 cup of the peach juice.

In a blender or food processor, combine the juices with  the remaining ingredients, and blend for 2 minutes, or until smooth. Serve  immediately.

Meal-In-One-Fruit Smoothie

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg (optional)

If making with egg, puncture the big end of the egg with a pin. Drop in rapidly boiling water for 20-30 seconds. While the egg cools (not cooks), combine all other ingredients and process in a blender. Then break the egg into the mixture. Blend a few seconds and chill or serve.

Carob Shake
3-4 dates, pitted and soaked 20 minutes
1 cup nut or grain milk 1 frozen banana, cut in chunks
3-4 Tbs. carob powder

For an old-fashioned, soda-fountain type of treat. Place  dates in a small bowl with just enough water to cover. Let them soak 20  minutes; drain. In blender, combine the dates, nut milk, banana, carob  powder and vanilla. Blend until smooth. Drink immediately.
