Green Smoothies Healthy Energy Drink Recipe

One mistake I see people make is to use mostly fruit in their smoothies and juices.
This can drastically raise your blood sugar levels too quickly, just like white sugar.

If you would like a nice, even energy for several hours, it is best to follow the following formula when making your green smoothies.

You could follow the 30/30/30 % Green Smoothie Recipe Formula, which is:

* 30% Vegetables/Leafy Greens (1 cup)

* 30% Fruit (1 cup)

* 30% Liquid (1 cup)

Plus 1 Tbsp Protein like seeds, nuts and nut or seed butters.

VEGETABLES – here’s the Green in Green Smoothies!

• Spinach – Popeye loved spinach and there’s a reason why. In addition to irone and calcium, spinach also contains an abundance of vitamin K. It’s packed with many other important vitamins and minerals including A, B, and E and it has the minerals your body needs. Like kale, spinach pairs nicely with many fruits.

• Celery – Celery is an excellent vegetable to juice and blend. It has diuretic properties and is a detoxifier. It also contains potassium and has been used to lower blood pressure. Celery stalks, including the greens, can be washed and popped into the blender whole. No trimming or peeling required.


• Bananas – Bananas are high in B vitamins. They’re also high in potassium and can give a smoothie a creamy texture. Ripe bananas are extremely sweet and pair well with chocolate, nuts and nut butters along with other tropical fruits.

• Berries – Whether you’re talking about strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or other types of berries, they’re all packed with antioxidants. These antioxidants help fight disease and boost your immune system.


• Hemp Seeds – Known to be one of the most, if not the most, nutritional and beneficial seeds on the planet, hemp is a
good source of protein, amino acids, omega fatty acids, as well as magnesium, potassium and fiber. It also has many of the
vitamins that your body needs to function and stay healthy. Hemp Seeds have a slightly nutty flavor.

• Nut butters – Nut butters like almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter, or even hazelnut butter, add a creamy texture to your smoothies. They also add some protein.


• Coconut Milk – Coconut milk is quite popular right now. It is rich, creamy, and naturally sweet. It also has some health benefits including the ability to raise HDL, the good cholesterol that your body needs. It also has a significant amount of Medium Chain Fatty acids which have been shown to facilitate weight loss.

• Nut Milks – There are also many types of milk found in your supermarket that are made from nuts and seeds. Almond milk and hemp seed milk are two examples. These milks often have added sugars but can be a good alternative to cow’s milk and soy milk if you have food sensitivities.

Spirulina Health Benefits and Energy Boost:

1.  Iron – which is easily absorbed and digested (other plants such as spinach have iron, but may not be as easily absorbed as the iron in spirulina).

2.  Protein – Highest known source of assimilable Protein.  Since this is plant-based protein it is more easily digested.  Very high protein content.   300% more protein than fish, meat or poultry, without the cholesterol.  Contains essential and non-essential amino acids (which are the building blocks of protein)

Spirulina is 65-71 percent complete protein compared to beef, which is only 22 percent, and lentils, which is only 26 percent.

Spirulina is a species of edible micro algae and has a mild taste, a little bit of a nut-like flavor.   Humans have been eating this for centuries.

Testimonial from one Happy Customer:  “I am no longer tired in class”

The iron in blue-green algae has been found to be easily absorbed by the digestive system, unlike the iron found in spinach and various other plant sources.  Spirulina is composed largely of protein and is noted for its essential and non-essential amino acids, which are perfectly balanced. It also contains Pro-vitamin A, which is converted to Vitamin A by the body.

 3.  B-Complex and particularly Vitamin B12

This is know as the world’s richest source of B12 which is needed for healthy blood cells.

4.   Brain Food and Nervous System Food  contains Neuro-peptides – food for the brain and nervous system to produce endorphins

5.  Calcium – 26 times more calcium than milk

6.  Minerals – Rich in iron, phosphorous, calcium, zinc, potassium, and magnesium.  Also trace elements, such as selenium and chromium.

Ocean and fresh water algae, some of which are better known as seaweed, kombu, wakame, nori, dulse, kelp and Irish moss, are the richest, natural source of minerals, trace minerals and rare earth elements.

One type of algae in particular, the microalgaes such as Spirulina, which is grown in culture pools, or the wild variety, which is harvested in the lakes they grow in, have been eaten for their health benefits by millions of people for thousands of years.

The healing powers of microalgaes have long been recognized in China, Africa, Mexico, Japan and Europe.

This nutrient rich food has an unusually large proportion of high-quality protein (approximately 55-70%), with all eight amino acids present in an ideal balance.

  • Micro-algae has a considerable amount of vitamin B12 and is rich in iron, magnesium and trace minerals.
  • It also contains significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acid and it’s the most chlorophyll-rich organism on the planet due to its superior ability to perform photosynthesis.
  • When eaten daily, microalgae promotes detoxing because the chlorophyll binds with toxins and heavy metals and
  • carries them safely out of the body.
  • It also contains disease-fighting compounds called phytochemicals, carotenoids and many other micronutrients while rapid absorption and optimal assimilation of vital nutrients is made easy due to the soft cell glucose wall.

A quote from Mark Stengler, ND in A Natural Physician’s Healing Therapies said it best:

“Spirulina stimulates natural killer cells and similar anti-immune  components of the immune system that can help fight cancer cells.”

Another excellent quote is from Healing with Whole Foods, Paul Pitchford writes:

“The special form of protein in spirulina benefits those with problems resulting from excessive animal protein, which does not assimilate well and further burdens the body with waste products.”
