another GREEN DRINK!

A very dear reader sent this recipe in of a morning green drink she makes…THANK YOU for sharing!

See below for Ayurvedic recommendations…and feel free to send in any recipes you have and would like to share with the group!



  • Totally vegan!


  • Totally gluten-free!


  • IN GENERAL: Ideally do not add papaya, any melon or pineapple to drink as Ayurveda recommends eating those fruits alone for best digestion. You can replace the papaya with Fuji apple as it’s a great tridoshic fruit and will bring in that sweetness.
  • KAPHA: Add a 1 inch piece of fresh ginger to this combo and replace banana with berries.
  • PITTA: Add a handful of parsley or cilantro instead of spinach and a pinch of salt.
  • VATA: Place all ingredients, except for avocado in pot and add 1/2 -1 cup water. Cover and cook on medium heat for 10-15 minutes. Raw foods (especially veggies) are not recommended for the Vata body types as they are harder to digest and are not grounding enough for them. Once cooked, uncover and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Then place all contents (including water) and avocado into blender and blend. DO NOT BLEND HOT….or else you may have a big mess on your hands.
