Blender Recipes that are convenient and delicious for ultimate energy.
I LOVE blender recipes because they are so fast and simple to make, and you can really pack them with nutrition. One of my favorite things to make is a blender salad. I invented this because I really don’t like to cook that much! Also, I believe that the more RAW and alive food that you can pack into your diet, the better.
You can make blender salads using your standard old kitchen blender, or if you are lucky to have a Vitamix, use that!. I got my Vitamix a few years ago, and I have to tell you, I don’t know how I existed before that machine!
Here is one of the first blender salads I ever invented for myself. This is the one that I helped credit me with running my first marathon! You can tweak the ingredients as you see fit. Or if you don’t have all of them on hand, just use what you do have. The addition of the apple to this recipe is what makes it a little more or less sweet.
Blender Salad Recipe
This delicious, nutritious and FAST recipe is probably the one thing I get asked about making more than anything! It’s my “famous” blender salad. People who have seen me make this or have seen me walking around drinking this, always ask me what’s in it, so here is the recipe.
- 20-24 ounces of water
- 1 whole beet
- ½ large cucumber
- 2 stalks celery
- 2 stalks kale
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 whole lemon or lime with rind cut off
- 1 whole tomato
- Optional – 1 small red or green apple
Put the water in the blender first and then add the beet and cucumber and process until smooth. As the blender is processing, add in the rest of the ingredients until smooth. When it is of the desired consistency, drink and enjoy. It will fill a large 64 ounce blender.
I like to make this blender salad in the morning, and then I drink it throughout the day, or I take it with me when I go running errands or while I am at the gym.
You should feel energized and alive when you drink this. You are getting the benefits of the all the fiber, minerals, and the enzymes of living food.
You can also play around with my blender recipes and make it to your taste by varying the ingredients. If you don’t have beets on hand, try a few carrots. If you don’t have kale, throw in some leafy lettuce. It doesn’t have to be exact, but I have found this recipe to work well for most everyone I’ve shared it with.
