Day 2 - April 2013 GSC

When you complete your 2-day GSC, there is
one final step that
you can help us with!

Simply send an email with "I Did It - your name and your city" in the subject line
(e.g.  I Did It - Maureen - Courtenay) and f
orward your email to info@rawbc.org
so that Clive of RawBC can track the numbers of people participating in
each 2-day Green Smoothie Challenge!


Blackberries are a favourite of mine that I use in many different ways. They partner well with other fruit in pies and crumbles, are beautiful used fresh in fruit salads, and can liven up and add a whole new dimension to green salads and salad dressings. Experience the deep purple colour and different taste sensation by trying blackberries and celery in your next Green Smoothie!

Purple Teeth GS
Yield: 1 quart

2 cups water
1 handful spinach
2 celery stalks
1 cup fresh pineapple
1 cup frozen blackberries
1 banana, peeled
  • Add all ingredients to a blender and blend together until smooth
  • Blackberries - The antioxidants within the blackberry can help to protect the body against chronic diseases, and blackberries also provide nutritional benefits which can help the body to fight off infection, disease, and aging.
  • Pineapple contains the powerful enzyme bromelain which can ease inflammation, relieve pain and stimulate digestion.

Coconut Dream Pudding GS

Here is a recipe from the Green Smoothie Revolution book. I really enjoy this pudding and make it for myself regularly! It is a filling and satisfying dinner replacement.
1 young Thai coconut, meat and water
5 Medjool dates, pitted
2 apples, cored if not using Vitamix
1 peeled banana
1 bunch chard
  • Adding the ingredients to a blender, a few at a time, makes for easier blending
  • Blend together until thick and creamy
  • The fat from coconut is considered saturated but it is actually called Lauric Acid which is a type of fat that is easily absorbed by the human body and used instantly as energy.
  • Tips on using young Thai coconuts can be found in my post on Aug 27, 2012.
