Blueberry/Carrot/Cashew Smoothie - Gluten-Free Raw Vegan
This is a relatively easy, gluten-free raw vegan smoothie that's designed to be a complete breakfast. It's one serving of vegetables and about three servings of fruit. Cashew Butter and Ground Flax provide fat and substance. Blueberries are the cheapest of the "superfruits". Coconut water is great for you, but expensive, so I choose to add just a little for the vitamins & potassium. Carrot juice for vegetable and beta-carotene. Bananas and applesauce for sweetness, fiber, and vitamins. Feel free to alter the recipe to your own needs, this just happens to work really well for me. Warning: this has a relatively strong carrot flavor. If you want to add more fruit, I recommend adding blueberries SLOWLY, test-tasting it. Too much of both strong flavors and everything gets muddled.
