Young Alive Green Shake

I discovered Organic Avenue a few years ago through a girlfriend who was about to do one of their fasts, and I joined her on the 5 day program. The result was pretty amazing and the juices and smoothies (esp. the coconut mylk and the cacao smoothie) were so delicious that I imbibe them whenever I’m in NYC. They make a cleanse easy with different degrees of gnarlyness and home delivery if you are in Manhattan.

Makes 2 servings

½ large cucumber

1 oz lime juice

6 oz grapefruit juice

1 Hass avocado

½ lb spinach

4 oz raw coconut milk

1 tsp Organic Avenue’s Green Powder

1 tsp Soy Sprout Powder

10 drops Organic Avenue’s Alkalizing Drops

4 sprigs of fresh mint

14 cubes purified water ice

Combine all ingredients in a high-power blender such as a Vitamix and blend well until completely smooth.

Since organic vegetables vary in size and juice content, servings vary and it is best to juice each vegetable separately and then mix the final recipe by volume. Wash all vegetables thoroughly in purified water to prevent any grit or off-flavors in your juice or shakes, and use a salad spinner to dry leafy greens.
