Fast forward two years, my smoothies are selling almost as well as my delivered meals. Yes, the green smoothie has made an appearance in town and people are talking about them. Not only that, they're sharing them! I love it! Smoothies are kind of like milkshakes, only not necessarily made with milk and can sometimes be green. Don't let that put you off, though, with the addition of sweet fruits you won't even taste the kale, the collards, the spinach and the parsley. As my current client Christina can attest to, mango and parsley make a delicious combination.
My newest client, Michelle, has asked when the smoothie recipes from the previous week will be online. Well, nothing like a request from a client puts me into action. Please enjoy responsibly and don't forget to share!

I believe I have shared this recipe before, but I'll do it again because it's nice to have all recipes in one place. The cherry beet detox smoothie is part of a 28 day Elimination Diet provided on another website. I'm following this plan with a client of mine and after a week of drinking Tom's Fruity Medicine Chest Smoothies, we were ready for a change:

During that same week, I also made this detox smoothie...the Lemony Cabbage and Cranberry Smoothie. Not as sweet as the one above, it was still one we enjoyed during the detox phase of this diet plan.

For the days when you really don't have time to eat but you need a meal on the run, you cannot beat the Superfood Smoothie from the Kindfood Cafe in Burlington, ON. I met owner Kelly Childs at the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival in September, 2011. She runs a vegan cafe and bakery with food to die for! I cannot wait to visit her establishment in the summer. I came across a video on YouTube with her employee Michael Rennie who made this amazing super super-food smoothie. Here is the link to the original recipe, but of course I've changed it up a little bit. :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20vcwVPtCYw
This is how it looks:

I have a back up smoothie recipe up my sleeve for just such smoothie making extravaganzas! It's my Pièce de résistance:

Next up is a very simple smoothie and yet still so good.

Okay, well that's it for now. As I get more photos I will upload them and share them with you.
