farmacyRatios (per serving): 1½ cups fruit (loosely packed), 1 cup leafy greens (tightly packed), 1 cup liquid.

Immunity boosts: powdered probiotics, olive leaf extract, elderberry extract
Protein boosts: protein powder, nuts or seeds.
Superfood boosts: hemp hearts, flax meal, ground chia seeds, spirulina, chlorella.
Detoxification boosts: ground chia seeds, food-grade diatomaceous earth (anti-parasitic), aloe vera.
Good fats: nuts, avocado.
Tummy soothers: ginger, superfine Pascalite powder, powdered probiotics
Hormone Balancers: Maca powder
Flavor enhancers: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, fresh ginger
Electrolytes: coconut water
Omega’s: flax meal, ground chia seeds, hemp hearts

Directions: Rinse and scrub all produce. Peel/rind all citrus fruits, bananas, melons and ginger. Remove seeds/pits/cores. Soak nuts in water or almond milk overnight before blending. Grate carrots, beets and other root vegetables or lightly steam to make them softer before blending. Blend all fresh or frozen ingredients in a blender until smooth. Serve immediately, freeze or store in refrigerator for up to 72 hours. For optimal benefit, consume at least 1-2 servings daily, as snacks or meal replacements. Eat at least one regular meal daily. Although any blender will do, you will burn up a regular blender pretty quickly with daily use; we recommend VitaMix or BlendTec.

Tips:

  • Leafy greens can be dehydrated, then pulverized into a powder with a mortar & pestle and stored almost indefinitely in a jar in the pantry. If you live in a dry climate, you don’t even need a food dehydrator – leafy greens will dry almost overnight when spread out on a kitchen counter or on cookie sheets. This powder can also be used in soups, casseroles and salad dressings for an extra nutritional boost. Unlike cooking, dehydrating food has little-to-no impact on it’s nutritional value. 1 Tbsp powder = 1 cup packed leafy greens.
  • Using at least one frozen fruit will make your smoothie thicker and colder.
  • Mix several of your favorite boosts together in a glass jar and simply add a few scoops to each blenderful of smoothie. For example, I blend 1 part spirulina or chlorella, 1 part bee pollen, 2 parts ground walnuts, 2 parts flax meal, 2 parts chia powder, 2 parts pascalite and 2 parts food-grade diatomaceous earth; then I add 6 Tbsp to each blenderful of green smoothie.
  • Bananas can be peeled and frozen whole individually, then stored in a gallon-sized Zip-Loc bag in the freezer.
