Raw Green Smoothie Recipe without Fruits or low GI fruit...Help? (Details)

Asked by DarlingRhadamanthus (11250points) March 18th, 2012

I am searching for Green Smoothie Raw Veggie Recipes that do not have fruits in them…or simply require an apple/carrot for sweetness or get their sweetness from a low G.I. fruit…but…here’s the catch…it has to be delicious! And not taste like grass or be bitter.

I have a recipe book for Green Smoothies and almost all of them take pineapple/mango and tropical fruits (high in sugar) and bananas, etc. I need some that will work with sweetener from low GI fruits.

Any ideas? Hope so.
Thanks so much!

The fruit is actually the only thing that is going to disguise that ‘grassy’ taste. Maybe you can add a couple of spoonfuls of coconut oil for added flavor, but without fruit, you can’t disguise the ‘yuck’ factor.
