raw food smoothie recipes

Raw Coconut Manna
A Raw Smoothie Recipe from Sarah

-Take the meat and water from one young coconut
-Fillet the jelly of a good chunk of aloe vera (approx. a 2X2 peice)
-Add a little blue manna, spirulina, e3 live, goji powder and/or goodies of your choice.
-A dash of agave nectar or sweetener if you like it sweet.


Green VegaMix
A Raw Smoothie Recipe from Nimisha (

In VitaMix or K-Tec blender:

-1 cup of water
-3 pieces of fruit – e.g. 1 orange, 1 apple, handful of grapes (or can be 3 oranges – whatever combination of fruit you like). -pineapple, peaches, pears, kiwi, berries, whatever is in season.
-Any dark green leafy vegetable – cram as much as you like into the blende e.g. romaine lettuce, kale, swiss chard, spinach, etc. any combination thereof, or just any one of them. Just make sure you put LOTS of greens in. (Would be great if you can find wild edible greens to such as purslane, lambsquarters, etc.)
-1/2 serving of Brendan Brazier’s Vega – the berry flavor is my favorite – mixes well with any fruit.

Blend until smooth and all the greens are thoroughly broken up. Swish blender out with a bit of extra water so you don’t waste any of the good stuff. Should yield about a quart of smoothie.

I vary the fruit and greens daily so I don’t run into the “same old, same old” problem…and get a variety of nutrients.

Chocolate Banana Nut Smoothie
A Raw Smoothie Recipe From Kanti

-1/2 unfrozen banana
-More frozen fruits (peaches, or strawberries, etc. but just the one flavor that you want dominant)

-I sweeten with dates or agave sometimes.

Raw Protein Power
A Raw Smoothie Recipe from Lynn

Lynn’s Note: This is the smoothie recipe (give or take) that my husband and I love right now – I have been making my own raw kefir from organically raised, grass fed cows milk, plus I make cultured raw coconut meat – it’s a real probiotic boost!

For 2 people:

-1C raw kefir
-1C young coconut milk
-1/4C cultured meat from one young coconut
-2 raw eggs
-1C frozen blueberries (or fresh chilled pineapple if you want to keep to the pina colada theme!)
-2 scoops unflavored low temp processed rice / whey protein (no added sweeteners)


Sweet and Spicy
A Raw Smoothie Recipe from Nadia

Try adding Cayenne to your cacao smoothies. The blend of chilli with chocolate is divine!! One of my favourites is:

-1 cup coconut water
-¼ cup almonds soaked peeled
-1 tbsp cacao powder
-1/8 cup white raisins
-1 capsule cayenne
-pinch sea salt


Lemon Ginger
A Raw Smoothie Recipe from Julie

My favorite raw smoothie is:

-1/2 bunch organic parsley
-3/4 cup blueberries (or any fruit)
-1/4 to 1/2″ ginger root, sliced thin to cut up the “hairs”
-One 1/4″ slice of lemon, seeded, but with the peel
-1/2 -3/4 cup water

Spin all in a good blender (e.g. Vitamix)

Banana Cherry and Sesame
A Raw Smoothie Recipe from Sharon

-Frozen organic cherries (1/2 cup to 1 cup – I happen to love them so I tend to add the larger amount)
-1 banana
-Liquid of your choice (I use fresh made sesame milk, from the soaked seeds – it is LOADED with calcium)
-1 or 2 teaspoons of raw cacao powder
-Raw honey or vanilla flavored agave as sweetner a little maca (if you like maca, add a teaspoon. If you are not crazy about the taste, add 1/2 teaspoon)

Blend on high in your vitamix or any blender that will smooth! Not only tasty but very healthy!!

Vanilla Nut
A Raw Smoothie Recipe from Jennifer

Jennifer’s Note: I usually use a nut mylk base without straining it in through a nut bag (I’m sometimes lazy) but you can strain it if you like.

-Nut Mylk
-1/2 cup Brazil nuts
-1/2 cup walnuts
-3-5 dates
-1 Vanilla bean stem
-3-5 cups water


-Maca powder
-Coconut oil
-Frozen (or fresh) Strawberries
-Frozen (or fresh) blueberries
-Gogi berries

The Key to the smoothie is the AMAZING nut mylk which tastes great on its own and the Vanilla bean. I use these AMAZING Madagascar Vanilla beans from The nut mylk seriously tastes like a soft serve vanilla ice cream and adding the other stuff without straining it makes for a great smoothie with a creamy sort of base.

The “KG”

-Cacao Powder or Nibs

Kevin Gianni

Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

    This may seem too simple to list with such fabulous smoothie combos, but for the novice, this is a great stepping off spot for a green smoothie:
    In a regular blender combine:

    1/2 cantaloupe
    1/2 bag of organic baby spinach

    Add any superfoods on hand or drink it plain.

  2. Connie says:

    Raw Smoothie Recipe from Rachael

    chunks of ripe red papaya
    chunks of ripe honeydew
    1 banana (frozen if possible)
    spinach or other greens
    about a cup of fresh-squeezed orange juice blend in blender or vitamix

    Live Awesome!

    This is from Vicki:

    My favorite smoothie:

    1 large ripe mango chopped and frozen
    1 or 2 frozen banannas
    1 bunch/bag spinach
    3 or 4 cups of water (depending on how thick or thin you like your smoothie)


    My kids love this smoothie too!!

  10. Paul says:

    This is my classic Bannana Berrie Superfoods Smoothie! All ingredients should be organic!

    2 – 3 cups of distilled/alkalinized/energized water (less if thicker is disired!)
    3-5 ripe bannanas
    2 cups of frozen berries(rasberries,blueberries,strawberries, ect)
    1/2 avocado ***
    1 tbsp of coconut oil ***
    1 tbsp of spirulina/and or blue green algae
    2 tbsp of barley grass powder
    2 tbsp of rice bran powder (riceplex!)
    If banannas are not ripe enough- add agave syrup and /or xylitol!!!

    *** : added for extra calories and richness
    if bannanas are frozen, will be like a milkshake!

    Enjoy and be energized! The green superfoods I feel are the best sources of digestable protein with the added benefit of chlorophyll!

  11. Superfood Smoothie

    1 ripe Banana
    20 Goji Berries (5 minutes soaked)
    1 tbsp Maca
    1 tbsp Cacao Nibs
    1/2 tsp HoShoWu (Chinese herb)
    1/2 tsp Tang Kuei

    This combination is great to balance hormones, like in PMS and Menopause.

    I also like this combination with 1 tbsp Spirulina and 1 tbsp Chlorella instead of Cacao Nibs, HoShoWu and Tang Kuei.

    Vitamin C+ Smoothie

    2 oranges
    1 big handful of strawberries (frozen or fresh)
    1 small handful of un-sweetened cranberries (I use frozen)
    1 heaping spoon of honey
    1 tray of ice cube

    The fruits in it are awesome stuff to fight an oncoming cold as they are loaded with vitamin C.
    This is one of my favourite smoothies.

    Raw Smoothie Recipe from Marielle

    I LOVE raw smoothies… so, thank you.

    Here is a recipe for what I’m currently doing for breakfast:
    (hopefully this goes without saying: everything is raw and organic :))

    Low Glycemic Morning Powerhouse
    1 tablespoon hemp nut seeds
    3 teaspoons of soaked golden flax seed
    1 tablespoon of coconut oil
    1 teaspoon of your favorite dried green supplement (ex. vitamineral greens)
    1 teaspoon of cacao
    1/2 teaspoon of maca
    bunch of gogi berries

    -you can add a teaspoon of your favorite honey or additional fruit to sweeten but then it’s no longer low glycemic

    This will keep you satiated until lunch.

  14. Bernadette says:

    Milk Smoothies…

    For those of you who are allergic to cow’s milk like me, here are some great tasting substitutes.

    12 raw macadamia nuts
    1.5-2 cups spring water
    Blend and strain.
    Add 1 frozen banana

    You can drink it just like this at this point…it is great, or you can make one of the flavors below…

    Maple walnut milk:
    Add 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
    1 tsp. Mt Capra Mineral Matrix

    Strawberry milk:
    Add 4-5 strawberries

    Chocolate milk:
    Add 1 tsp. of raw chocolate powder

    You can also substitute soaked almonds for the macadamia nuts.


    1 cup green tea (room temp or cold)*
    1 handful spinach
    1 apple, cored and chopped
    1 banana, peeled and chopped
    pinch nutmeg

    *To prepare tea without using much heat, if any at all, place a mason jar with a cup of water on your counter. Place an organic green tea bag in it for 6 hours or more. Or, you can place it in the sun 🙂

    Blend all of the ingredients until smooth in a blender and enjoy your zen state of mind!

    Prickly Pear Passion Smoothie

    serves 2

    This is the most beautiful color and it tastes just as great! It’s prickly pear season and there are thousands of them on our place. I just hope they don’t get ripe at the same time!

    8 ripe (purple) prickly pears, peeled
    1½ cups water
    3 ripe bananas
    1 teaspoon raw agave nectar
    Holding them with tongs, cut the ends off the prickly pears and slightly cut them lengthwise, not all the way through. Filet them like a fish and put the flesh in the blender. Do this 8 times. Add the water and blend. Pour the contents through a strainer into a bowl. Mash and swish the contents remaining in the strainer until you extract all the juice. Add this back into the blender with 3 bananas and sweetener of choice, I used agave nectar. Blend and enjoy!

  17. Karrie Gregson 'KG' says:

    I had to laugh when I read Kevin’s Recipe because my name (that I am called by friends) is ‘KG’ as well and I am the world’s biggest unmeasurer…Just DUMP IT IN, person. Very similar recipe too.

    AVOCADO DREAM ( I just love Avocado in Smoothies)

    1/2 Avocado (approx)
    1 frozen Banana
    small handful of raw almonds
    5-7 dates (depending on how sweet you want it)
    1 T Ground Flaxseed
    11/2 – 2 cups liquid (Water or a nut or soya milk, add depending on how thick you want it)

    Simple and DEVINE

    Some more… 🙂

    From JWSMITH

    I thought the mania was over Green Smoothies. No?
    I make mine starting with 1 piece of fruit, maybe 2 if I have something that really wants to be eaten that morning. Then I add greens–kale, spinach, parsley, mixed, chard, whatever, loosely packed in the blender. Then I add about 1/2 c. of any sort of sprouts I have going, and then about a tablespoon of spirulina or maca or cacao aand then, if I feel like it, a tablespoon of some fat — flax seed oil or coconut oil or tahini. If I’m looking forward to a day with a 50+mile bike ride, I include an avocado.

  19. Kevin Gianni Kevin Gianni says:

    I make a smoothie just about every day. The thing you have to be careful with is the food combining of course. I notice that people just throw everything and anything in the blender.

    My mother would make these when I was a little girl and now I make them for my own children.

    Carrot smoothie

    -carrot juice
    -3 tbs. raw cream
    -. frozen banana’s
    -blend till smooth and add a dash of nutmeg on top

    Carob Smoothie

    -almond milk
    -1 tbsp flax meal
    -3 tbsp raw carob powder
    -frozen bananas
    -1 tbsp of real maple syrup (optional)

    Two of my many favorites, simple yet amazingly delicious!!

    Happy blending

  20. Kevin Gianni Kevin Gianni says:

    Morning Riches

    i tend to eyeball it, depending on how I’m feeling or who I’m making it for and what time of the day it is

    flax seeds
    ginger knuckle

  23. Dorothy says:

    Vanessa was mentioning food combinations. Can someone tell me what not to combine together. I tend to throw in whatever I have into a smoothie.
    Thank you,

  24. Annie says:

    Hi All,
    Just thought I’d add this to the list of amazing recipes.
    Here goes:
    1 cucumber peeled
    1 grapefruit peeled
    1 lime peeled
    1/2 bunch cilantro, stems and all
    handful of parsley
    3-4 big leaves of kale
    ice or water and blend. enjoy!

  25. Ally Gator says:

    Oh man. Went dumpstering last night and got the haul of a lifetime. Distributed %80 but had a couple boxes left over. SO relieved to find such a site! Thanks for all the ideas! I ended up with a dumpster blend:

    strawberry spirutein
    goji berry juice
    flax meal
    green+red leaf lettuce
    grapes (green+red+juice)
    Odwalla B monster

    Filled a pitcher and threw the rest in the freezer. What was that about being careful with food combinations? Ah, well, I guess if I’m eating out of a dumpster I’m really not the picky sort.

  30. Virginia says:

    This is a wonderful blog. I have learned to love my body and myself after eating raw and living healthy for the past three years, and now look forward to the rest of my life as a healthier, happier woman. My only comment is for the follow up to the “Danae Butterfly’s Loamy Lingam or Levitating Lotus!” recipe by Aurora Butterfly. As somebody who has family lineage in both Hawaii and Tonga, I find her use of that chant fairly problematic. Hawaiian chants do not “conjure majic”, nor do they cast spells. The chants we sing, and the language we use that is rapidly disappearing in front of our eyes, is used traditionally to worship our kings, queens, chiefs and Gods. I am fine with the use of this chant for this smootie (as it does look wonderfully delicious!), just please do not use it to conjure spells and magic. Use it to express your love for nature, and for the beauty of that which is my home. Finally, do it in hope for longevity and preservation of that what is left of Native Hawaiian culture.
