Want a different spin on getting a lot of healthy nourishment without having to eat a lot of salad?
When I want a quick and easy way to give my body the energy-filled nutrition it craves, I turn on my blender and make a Garden Vegetable Smoothie, the latest addition to my YouTube videos.

Many people enjoy sweet, milkshake-y fruit smoothies for breakfast. I do, too, but there are times my notorious sweet tooth is “napping” and I prefer something savory. This is especially at lunch or dinnertime. And you know what? In doing research for the revised version of my first book, I found out a lot of other folks like savory, too.
So in the revised edition of my first book, Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People, you’ll find a bigger-and-better-than-ever smoothie chapter that includes lots more veggie-based smoothies.
My Garden Vegetable raw smoothie is a delicious example of a savory smoothie. It includes spinach, so it’s an antioxidant powerhouse. But rather than balancing slightly bitter greens with sweet fruit, I use vegetables including celery, tomatoes, cucumbers, and zucchini instead.

The result is flavorful and satisfying. It’s also low in sugar, and totally fat- and salt-free. Your body loves that!
You won’t believe how easy it is! You don’t need a juicer; a blender will do fine. Oh! And if you’re new to smoothie-making, pay special attention the order in which I place the ingredients into the blender. Following this suggestion will ensure the best possible blending.
