It’s good to change things now and again and not have the same thing every day. So we have a savory smoothie for a change. This one comes from Heather Crosby at YumUniverse; you’ll find the ingredients at the end of the post. Adjust the spiciness to your own taste and use full flavored tomatoes for best results. The avocado adds some creamy thickness and the parsley is cleansing and is a powerhouse of nutrition.

This smoothie can either be served as a traditional red gazpacho by ignoring the greens or as a green gazpacho. Heather favors the green smoothie and here’s what she has to say …

Sweet green smoothies are absolutely delicious, and there is no doubt that mixing fruit with leafy greens is the easiest, most palatable way to introduce people to green smoothies. However, most fruits contain a large amount of natural sugar, making them acidic in large quantities. Mixing things up and including more alkaline vegetable smoothies is a great way to increase your alkaline buffers and change your palate.

… Another top tip for creating delicious savory vegetable green smoothies is to keep them really cold. I have always found that adding a ton of ice and consuming them really cold just seems to make them taste better! It is quite remarkable how quickly your palate changes on an alkaline diet.
