These smoothies use some ingredients that some consider “superfoods” because of their potential powerful nutrients. These smoothies are adapted from Shanti Devi Michal, who is a raw chef from New York who performed a raw food demonstration that I attended back in 2005. I met one of my closest friends at this demo who has become a lifelong friend. The first one here is my favorite!
