Day 2 - July 2013 GSC

Using up the last of the chickweed growing in my yard - I guess it is only a spring crop!

This simple yet delicious and nutritious GS is a great way to start your day without the need for additives.

Coconut Grape GS
Yield: 1 quart

2 cups fresh coconut water
2 cups chickweed
1 mango, fresh or frozen
1 cup organic red grapes
  • Open a young Thai coconut and pour the liquid (coconut water) into your blender
  • Add the rest of ingredients and blend all together
  • If your coconut only gives one cup of coconut water, simply add one cup of purified water to make two cups


Here is a Green Smoothie that I have made before, but it is a good one to finish off this 2-day GSC.

Strawberry Milkshake GS 

2 cups Arugula/Spinach mixture
2 frozen bananas
1 cup strawberries
2 cups Sesame seed mylk 
  • In a blender, mix together until thick and creamy
  • Using frozen bananas results in a thicker milkshake effect
  • Strawberries can be fresh or frozen
  • Use any nut or seed milk
  • Sesame seeds are a good source of calcium - and are gluten-free
