Mhhm… green smoothies! So good, so healthy, so easy to make divine organic raw green food.

Green vegetable smoothies are already very popular nowadays. Surely, their popularity will grow further since these amazing all natural drinks are a perfect solution for everybody who would like to enjoy all benefits of raw food for health.

On we concentrate on healthy nutrition, on importance of organic green raw food for our health.

We do not ask ourselves “Why go green” any more. We have already done it.

Green smoothies and other organic green foods are a very important part of our daily nutrition. We enjoy it very much, we feel great, and therefore we would like that more people would do it, too.

Green smoothies were “invented” by a master of raw food, Mrs. Victoria Boutenko, a cook and a writer (Green for Life, ...). People who are aware of the importance of healthy nutrition will for sure put these incredible all natural drinks on their menus.

The Essence of Green Foods

Everything begins with an inappropriate nutrition, which is nowadays a real epidemic. Many scientists who fight cancer recommend “five units of fruit and vegetables” a day, but this piece of advice is often overlooked by the public.

The inappropriate and insufficient nourishment is responsible for many modern diseases.

Exactly leafy green vegetables contain an enormous amount of micronutrients, which can help us even when battling cancer. By consuming greens, we feel much better in a very short time.

Green smoothies contain a very concentrated quantity of greens, which enable us to consume more beneficial substances in only one meal than otherwise in a whole day.

All micronutrients we provide our body with, also prevent unnecessary emotional starvation, which is the consequence of lack of such essential nutritional substances.

Vegetables create cellulose; the firmest molecular structure on the planet. If we want to break the cell wall of vegetables (greens), we have to chew them thoroughly. That can sometimes be very difficult for our teeth; for people with false teeth almost impossible.

In general, a big problem is also lack of time; we do not take enough time for eating and proper chewing, so we hardly get to most precious nutritious substances, which are stored in vegetables’ cells.

A smoothie machine solves this problem. By blending, we get a smooth fruit vegetable smoothie. Fruits and vegetables, including greens are literally decomposed to very small pieces. In this way, we can take the benefits of all nutritional values of vegetables and fruits, and the digestion is much easier and better, too.

Making Green Vegetable Smoothies

The “greens” are not vegetables or fruits; they are the green parts, leaves of plants - like leaves of carrot, beet, or turnip. Mrs. Boutenko discovered that leaves contain much more vitamins and minerals than a bulb. In bulbs, there are more calories, grease, and carbs; in leaves, on the contrary, there are 2000 times more vitamins A and K.

These nutrition facts tell us why we should use green leaves for making healthy green smoothies. The healthiest from the nutritional point of view are the young plants, just before they go to flower. As ingredients for a green vegetable smoothie, we should use also wild plants like nettle, dandelion, different spices, and various herbs whenever possible.


For the beginning, it is enough to use up to 40% of dark green vegetables like kale, rocket, or spinach, and blend them with any edible fruit. For the start, you should perhaps use a banana, which covers the greens’ taste very efficiently. We like also apples, pears, a mango… Later, when you get used to the taste and the effect of green smoothies, you can change the proportion in favor of greens.

In order to increase the nutritional value of green smoothies you should add various dietary supplements. All depends on your taste, creativity, and wishes. With practice, you will recognize that there are unlimited combinations possible.
