Yid.Dish: Super Green Smoothie

By Leah Koenig

Published June 30, 2005.



1 apple or pear, cut into cubes

½ cup berries, fresh or frozen

1 stalk celery, thinly sliced

¼ cup parsley stems removed and roughly chopped

½ cup dark leafy green, such as kale or dandelion, chopped

1 Tablespoon olive oil or Udo’s Choice oil

2 cups organic milk, rice milk, unsweetened almond milk or coconut water

Optional additions:

½ banana or ¼ cup chopped dates (for a sweeter flavor)

1 teaspoon green powder, such as spirulina or vitamin mineral (energy, micro- nutrients)

1 Tablespoon Tahini paste or nut butter, such as almond (fiber, protein and healthy fat)

½ cup ice (if you like it colder)


Put the hemp or flax seeds only in the blender and pulse on the highest speed until they have been grounded to a powder. Add all the remaining ingredients, pouring the milk in last. The ingredients should be covered by the milk, so add more milk if necessary. Blend everything for 5 minutes, until smooth. If needed, stop the blender after a few minutes in order to mix the ingredients well. Enjoy!
