The Lean Green Machine (Fruit-Free, Sugar-Free Smoothie) Recipe

The Lean Green Machine
By Kim Smith

This recipe makes a lot so you can share with someone or put leftovers in a mason jar and in the fridge for later, and I recommend using a Vitamix or Blendtec high-speed blender.

3 cup Skinny Bliss Tea or purified water
2Tbsp. organic chia seeds
1/4 cup organic pumpkin seeds
1/2 tsp. HealthForce Elixir of the Lake blue green algae powder
1 Tbsp. HealthForce Spirulina Manna powder
1 1/2 Tbsp. HealthForce VitaMineral Greens powder
1/2 tsp.  Yerba Mate Royale Instant Tea (optional)
3 cups organic young romaine or spring lettuce or spinach mix
Add Now Foods organic Stevia powder to your taste for sweetness
Medicine Flower organic for culinary use flavor drops (Yes, we carry these at Pure Health Foods for $21.99 1/2 oz) When it comes to these drops, a little goes a long way! I used 2 drops strawberry with 2 drops banana for my flavoring.
Blend with ice.


I promise you won't taste the greens if you make this recipe exactly as it's written here. This smoothie gives you great energy. It's awesome in the morning to get you going or before a workout. It also has everything you need as a meal replacement.

All of the ingredients, with the exception of the fresh organic greens are available at Pure Health Foods.
