can improve your health significantly.
Look, I’m just going to lay-it-on-the-line: to dramatically improve your health, you must find a way to get more fresh, raw vegetables and fruits into your body each day. Period. End of story.
When you can get fresh fruits and vegetables into your body before 10am, then your day is off to a great start! In the video below, I share inside tips on getting the most healthy energy — including fiber, vitamins, and minerals — into your morning smoothie.
Why Smoothies Are So Good for You
For busy people, one of the best ways I know how to get more produce into the daily diet is through freshly made smoothies.
For beginners, those nice folks who are little skeptical about including vegetables in their smoothie recipes, I suggest starting out with fruit berry smoothies because you can slip in small amounts of celery, cucumber and spinach, along with ample amounts of organic berries, and the end result is fantastic! You get the vibrant red or purple color and refreshing taste of the berries, but you still manage to consume some vegetables, too (even though you can’t taste the vegetables, because the predominant flavor is fruity).
“…if you saw my driver’s license photo, you wouldn’t recognize me in it — I barely recognize myself! The photo was taken before I discovered freshly made green smoothies, back when I was, well, fatter. After making and drinking smoothies for a year, all of that weight came off, plus my face looks less puffy and more youthful. I eventually had to get new clothes, even my ‘skinny clothes’ were too chubby.
Of course, it wasn’t all smooth-sailing: in the beginning, I made some mistakes (pretty much the same mistakes everyone makes). For instance, when I first started, I put milk and banana into a blender and then added some powder I got from a can at the grocery store. Wrong! That is not a freshly made green smoothie! Also, at first, smoothies made me light-headed and wouldn’t sustain my energy, but Dane showed me on to use the right ingredients and the right ratios. It turns out, I needed to add more ‘clean fat,’ such as raw, sprouted seeds. Thanks to Dane, I feel better now than I ever have before. Freshly made green smoothies ROCK!”

How to Use Your Blender to Become Lean and Energized! ~ eBooklet
“…I read the eBooklet on making fresh green smoothies
and promptly set about changing my typical fruit smoothie
to have greens in it.
But I did not believe you when you said to start slowly!
I dumped a bunch of green stuff in the mixer and,
well… you know how it went.
Had to force it down! Now I changed to follow your advice:
start with just a few greens to the mix until I get used to it.
And guess what? I really like adding a little celery
and some radish sprouts.
Very good stuff! I’ll be adding a little bit more over time,
just like you suggested.
Sometimes it’s good to follow advice, eh?”

“…I’ve always been a no-breakfast person.
But what I didn’t realize was that
skipping breakfast only made me lethargic and lazy all day long.
And I’d eat a whole lot more at lunch than I would have otherwise!
So, when I came across Dane’s smoothie recipes,
I decided to give them a shot.
Only one week in and I already feel much more energetic
than I have in the last ten years.
And I also tend to eat less lunch
which is great to control weight.
I plan to start smoothies for lunch too.
Slim waistline, here I come!”

Vegetables… in a Smoothie?
At first, it might seem strange to put vegetables into a morning blended protein shake, but again, in most beginning and intermediate-level recipes you don’t taste veggies as much as you taste fruit.
I often put fresh lemon, cucumber, celery, parsley and spinach in my morning drinks, and the taste is smooth and refreshing! You may not believe that, but when you try it, you’ll know what I mean.
“…at first it might seem strange
to put vegetables into a morning blended,
but, really, you don’t taste veggies
as much as you taste fruit”
For lunch, my smoothies are even greener and more “hardcore” — with chard, kale, and fresh sunflower and radish sprouts — but I’ve been at this green smoothie thing for several years now and I wouldn’t expect someone just starting out with smoothies to jump-in to the advanced super-green ones!
Wherever you happen to be on your nutritional journey, you simply start from where you are and move forward.

For you hardcore vegan rawfooders out there, you’ll want more advanced green smoothie recipes because this recipe below is perfect for people just starting out with green smoothies — those that are more accustomed to the standard modern diet but who want to make small steps to improve their health:
Smoothie Recipe for Two People

I was born in raised in California, so smoothies have been a part of my life for over 40 years! However, it wasn’t until several years ago — when I began experimenting with taking the smoothie concept to the next level — that I realized just how transforming smoothies can be. To say that green smoothies have improved my life would be a masterpiece of understatement. My health is vastly improved — I feel younger, have more energy, look better (no more puffy, tired face), and at this exact moment I have washboard abs! Not bad for a 47 year-old guy! I hope you’ll experiment with freshly made green smoothies, too. It’s a lot of fun to see what your blender can do to improve the quality of your daily life!
