Cheer Up Green Shake (Raw)

Published May 23, 2013 by Vegan Derby Cat Party


Hey all!

This will be the last post before we head on down to Portland for Vida Vegan Con 2013 this evening! Just a little green shake I made to cheer myself up after talking with the financial people over at the hospital where I took my uninsured, fractured arm, back in April. :p I’m going to try to put that out of my mind until next week so I can enjoy all the festivities this weekend. Should be quite a lot!

We had been eating all raw since Sunday to cleanse before what will be an incredible amount of vegan food and treats this weekend, but we broke it last night with a trip to our favorite Seattle vegan bar, Highline. I figured I should probably get the tum ready with these yummy steak & black bean nachos they had on special.


Mmm! Those were good. But after feeling a little down and unmotivated after this morning’s conversation, I decided a little chlorophyll might do a body good. That, and I had a craving for a vanilla milkshake! I made a proper green revision of my previous Raw Vegan Milkshakes. Here’s the recipe!

Cheer Up Green Shake (Raw)

2 c. almond milk (raw or store bought)
3 ripe bananas, halved
2+ c. frozen spinach
1/2 c. frozen pineapple chunks
1 tbsp. flax seeds, optional
2 tbsp. raw carob powder, optional
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg

2-3 c. of ice, to liking


Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender, adding ice a cup at a time, to preference.

Okay, now to go pack, wash my hair and shower. I look forward to seeing so many of you in Portland very, very soon! ~Ty

  • Someone told me recently that combining bananas and pineapple was not a good thing for one’s stomach.
    It’s not a combo I use in my smoothies but never something I consciously avoided. Have you ever heard that?
