This is probably my best so far.

  • One stick of celery
  • Two oranges
  • One banana
  • Two handfuls of lettuce
  • Two “leaves” of white cabbage
  • Frozen peaches
  • A cup of water

The final color is a stomach churning light brownish green tone. Don’t mind the color! It tastes a lot better than it looks. DW was commenting about the alternating notes of oranges, celery, …

We started making smoothies with random ingredients (basically the extent of my raw food cooking skills) about a week ago. Sofar I can unscientifically conclude that I think my skin looks “different”; maybe a bit darker/goldenish. I’m not sure. It also looks better. I basically add the smoothie before the main meal. No serious detox effects in case you’re curious, but then again, this is not a serious detox diet, just an improvement.

PS: My secret plan is to kill our present Osterizer through overuse so I can get one of those legendary vitamix blenders.
