Smoothies are an easy way for anybody to add more raw foods into their life. Here are some luscious, in the buff, 100% RAW smoothies, that I think put Jamba to shame…
Two Quick Notes:
- I love honey and eat it everyday. If you don’t, try substituting with agave nectar or stevia.
- Please use the comments section on this Naked Smoothie page as a place to share your best raw smoothie recipes with the rest of the world, or at least the, uh, couple people who begrudgingly read my blog.
PB&J Shake: So good you’ll want to pour it on wonder bread.
- Fill about 1/3 of the blender with frozen blueberries.
- Add 1-2 tbs of raw almond butter.
- Add a tbs of raw honey.
- Add a little water and blend. Keep blending and adding water until it’s the thickness you like and doing that cool tornado thing in the blender.
Cocoa “Puffs”, aka Chocolate Dream Machine: Hemp & Cacao are both team players.
- Add 1 tbs raw almond butter or even better walnut butter (the walnut butter version tastes like brownies!)
- Add 1 tsp hemp oil
- Add just a little water (like 1/4 cup)
- Quick blend into a hemp butter milk
- Add heaping tbs raw cacao powder (powerful stuff)
- Add 1-2 tbs raw honey or raw agave nectar
- Add some hemp seeds
- Blend until smooth adding as little water as required to blend.
- Add two handfuls of crushed ice.
- Blend while adding as little water as possible for blending. Keep blending until you have a creamy Diner style milkshake that’s loaded with plant based protein, immune boosters, and healthy fats!
“I Am What I Am” morning green drink:
Harness the power that is Popeye!
- Juice a couple sweet grapefruits or several oranges by hand.
- Pretty much fill the blender up with spinach.
- Drink down the crazy.

Annie’s Giant Breakfast Smoothie: Annie’s very small. She drinks this huge shake (almost 32 oz.) every morning. It’s got a delicious mellow flavor and it’s packed with energy that lasts…but I can’t do it. I cut the recipe in half.
- Blend about 2-3 tbs of raw almond butter with roughly 1/2 cup of water to create a nut milk base.
- Add 6 large dates (minus the pits)
- Add a tbs of cacao nibs
- Add a dash of vanilla extract
- Add a scoop of a quality green foods powder of your choice.
- Blend until smooth.
- Now add a heaping cup of ice to make this one cold-mutha…
- BLEND…AND…BLEND…AND BLEND…you might have to add a little more water.
