Blueberry-Green Smoothie + Green Juice Smoothie

Hello VegCookbookers!

It’s been hot here in California and I’ve been super busy, so the first recipes I tried from our September VegCookbook, Vegan Indian Cooking, were smoothies.

Green Juice Smoothie

I love the spice of ginger in a smoothie, so this one was up my alley. I don’t have a Vitamix, so I chopped up the apple, carrot, cucumber and ginger before adding them to my blender and they pureed up nicely. I also squeezed the orange and lime, rather than add them in pieces, like you can with a Vitamix. I didn’t add ice. I don’t like icy drinks.

I liked this one too, although the Green Juice Smoothie had a more unique flavor. My grocery store doesn’t carry bitter melon, so I used spinach instead. I didn’t soak the almonds overnight, ’cause I wanted to make the smoothie the day I got the ingredients, so they didn’t blend up very well in my blender.  I’d hit a big nut chunk every once in awhile.

I have some almonds soaking right now to make the Red Velvet Smoothie tonight. Hopefully, they’ll  blend up better.

  1. We regularly make the South Indian Hummus and eat it on a bagel! It is SO good, one of the best hummus recipes I’ve used. I always leave out the rasam powder just cause I’m too lazy to make it 🙂

    We have also made the roti several times and find it pretty easy and quick,

  2. These sound great, thanks for sharing!
