Sunrise Green Smoothie in 1-Minute

Go green with a delicious healthy smoothie for breakfast. My day begins with a big tall one. Every morning it’s a bit different, and I drink it before a workout, yoga or qigong. This basic recipe is loaded with vital nutrition and whole food flavor. I make sure I use tart fruits, which are low in sugars and carbs. It’s important to avoid sweet fruits (those high in fructose), because who needs a blood sugar roller-coaster to start the day? The recipe is simple – you can vary it any way you like. The optional superfoods are highly recommended. Serves 1 or 2.


Algae is the single-cell organism that’s the most nutrient dense food on the planet.

    Can you confirm the recipe is correct for the almond butter? It says 1/2 cup?

      Hi Meg, Eeek! That’s too much almond butter. Try 2 tablespoons if you like almond butter. I do, but 1/2 cup would be too much. Thank you for pointing gout this mistake! Really appreciate you! Best wishes for your delicious health! Jane
