One of my favourite smoothies from Jamba Juice used to be Amazing Greens, consisting of lemonade, peach juice, peaches, kale, bananas, and pumpkin seeds. Two things really put me off from buying it again. One was that a large serving has 92 grams of sugar, coming from all the added sugars in the lemon and peach juices. The other is that it cost $9 a cup. Crazy! Here is how I make it at home, just as large (although I split it in two), with no refined sugar, a total of 24 grams of sugar, at a tiny fraction of the price.

I keep chopped frozen bananas and peaches in my freezer. I buy them fresh and chop and seal them up myself as it's cheaper. I wash and dry the peaches well and keep the skins on for added fiber.

Total Time: 5 minutes

We all hear it - we must have an acutely large serving of fruits and veggies a day!! But who really wants to, especially considering the possibly inversely proportionate ratio of effort expended to taste? Nobody! So, the thing to do is to have lots of smoothies!

This is a smoothie I present here that is a very personal variation of many one can see online, and it is a personal favourite. It's tasty even for veggie haters! It is also vegan/raw for those who are monitoring such things.

Total Time: 1.5

Yield: 64oz

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz Water ($free)
  • 8 oz Almond or Soy Milk ($50cents)
  • 8 units Banana ($1.50)
  • 8 units Dates ($2)
  • 2 tsp Ginger Powder OR ($50cents)
  • 1 oz Ginger Root ($20cents)
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Powder (optional) ($50cents)
  • 2 cups raw Swiss Chard or Spinach ($1)
  • 1/2 cup raw Cilantro ($25cents)

Steps:

  1. Chop up bananas into halves and make sure dates are de-pitted. Wash greens; then chop up to a manageable size. Cut up ginger if using ginger root.
  2. measure out all remaining ingredient, and blend - generally start with the greens so as to ensure they are as pureed as possible - then add dates, bananas, and finally everything else
