Green Smoothies seem to be the “latest craze” in the raw food community… many have started to crave and enjoy eating more greens after a couple of weeks of drinking green smoothies.

With Victoria ‘s permission, we are excited to share a small sample of her Green Smoothie recipe collection from her latest book “Green for Life”. Here’s her favorite recipe: 4 ripe pears, 1 bunch parsley, and 1 big cup of water—well blended. While it looks very green, it tastes like fruit!

Equipment Required : Blender


  • 2 Mangos
  • 1 handfuls lamb quarters, stinging nettles, purslane, etc.
  • water

Simply throw all ingredients into a blender, blend well and serve! Ratio is 60% ripe organic fruit, mixed with about 40% organic green vegetables.
