Raw Food Smoothie Recipe

A Raw Food Smoothie is one of the best ways to start your day feeling prepared for anything! I discovered this quick and delicious recipe by accident a few weeks ago. Normally I make my fruit smoothies with raw goats milk, but on this particular morning, there was none to be found in my frig. So I decided to try water as a substitute. Even while I was mixing the ingredients, I was wondering if I would like this new dairy-free concoction. But from the first taste, I was in love!!! This raw food smoothie is so light and incredibly refreshing, yet filling too……

Here is what you need:

* 5 med-lg. Frozen organic strawberries (or other frozen fruit)

*1 Frozen organic banana

*2 Raw organic eggs

*1 cup Water

*1/4 tsp. organic Vanilla

*Raw Honey to taste (aprox. 2 tablespoons)

Mix eggs, water, honey and vanilla in your vita-mix or blender, then add frozen fruit at the end. Blend until smooth and fluffy. Enjoy! (Note: If you don’t have access to goats milk, or you don’t like the idea of water, you can also use raw almond milk or raw sesame milk. You can find out how to make those in my raw food recipe category).
This raw food smoothie is great not only because it tastes so good, but because the nutrients it contains are so essential for over-all body health:
– Strawberries (and most other berries as well) contain high levels of antioxidants which may greatly reduce the risk of many diseases.
– Raw eggs are a good source of protein and contain vitamin D, which has been used for depression, bone and immune health and much more.
– Bananas are a great source of fiber, B6 and potassium, which may increase energy and mental clarity, lower blood pressure, etc
I can’t think of a better way to start my day than a raw fruit smoothie!
