Green Goddess Smoothies

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Yield: 3–4 servings

Here’s a delicious nutritional gold mine for all vegetarians. People often wonder about protein and vitamin B12. Combining sunflower seeds (soaked to increase enzyme activity and protein absorption), flaxseed oil, and organic spirulina (a great vegan source of B12 that, by weight, contains close to 60 percent protein) is an answer. As a micro-algae, spirulina represents the highest level of trapped energy from the sun of any known food. It’s like drinking energy straight from the sun.

1 quart apple juice

2 medium frozen bananas

¼ cup flaxseed oil

¼ cup sunflower seeds, soaked overnight and rinsed

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon spirulina

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Combine the apple juice, bananas, flaxseed oil, sunflower seeds, spirulina, and cinnamon in a blender. Blend on high speed for 1 minute or until smooth and creamy. Pour into glasses and serve.

NOTE

It’s best to start your kids on algae at an early age to develop their taste for nutrient-rich dark green foods. Add powdered vitamin C, herbal extracts, and acidophilus for morning and afternoon pick-me-ups.
