Smoothie Recipes

Apple seeds contain amygdalin, which releases toxic cyanide when digested.
Raw Food Toxins
Blending apple seeds breaks them down, making the amygdalin available. You may want to remove the seeds from apples before blending. You can easily do this by slicing the apple into quarters from top to bottom, then cutting out a wedge from each piece to remove the seeds.

Apple Oat Cinnamon Smoothie

Chop a couple of apples. Put in blender with a handful of raw oat groats. Add a small piece of cinnamon bark, or a little ground cinnamon. Add enough water to submerge everything. Blend.

Carrot Oat Ginger Smoothie

Chop a fistful of carrots into small pieces. Chop a piece of ginger root the size of your thumb, slicing across the grain to cut the fibers. Put in blender with a handful of raw oat groats. Add enough filtered water to submerge everything; blend. If you don't have a strong blender, add more water to make it easier on the motor.

Carrot Sesame Smoothie

Chop a fistful of carrots small, or grate them. Put in blender with a spoonful or two of black or brown sesame seeds. Add a small amount of whole black pepper. Add enough filtered water to submerge everything, blend. If you don't have a strong blender, add more water to make it easier on the motor.

Grape Thing

Get the darkest purple-black grapes you can find. They must be old-fashioned grapes with seeds. Put grapes, seeds and all, into blender. Blend.

Spinach Apple Smoothie

Chop apples. Put in blender with spinach. Add a small piece of ginger root, sliced across the grain. Blend.

Spinach Orange Smoothie

Cut oranges into four sections, slicing from from top to bottom. This allows you to easily peel them, and remove the seeds. (Orange seeds will make the smoothie taste bitter if you blend them.) Peel oranges, remove seeds, put in blender. Add spinach. Add a small piece of ginger root, sliced across the grain. Blend.
