Cleansing and alkalizing the body in the morning helps repair and balance the gut from salty meats and high starchy foods. Having liquids in the morning really helps our gut repair from any holiday destruction.
Replacing a conventional breakfast with liquids has many health benefits and V’s here to explain…
If you’ve been following me for years, you already know how important NOT eating breakfast is.
Use my Tropical Green Drink as the base for this recipe for a cool, refreshing smoothie. Mangos contain tartaric acid, malic acid, and a trace of citric acid, which help maintain the alkaline balance of our bodies.
A creamy green smoothie has many important nutrients. Potassium is an important mineral that most people don’t get enough of. But instead of reaching for a banana, eat an avocado since it contains more potassium and way less sugar.
Adding Kale to a green protein smoothie makes it so good for you. Kale is a wonder in the world of superfoods. It is packed with carotenoids and flavonoids, the key antioxidants that protect our cells from free radicals.
A smoothie recommended for the nursing mom! This is our most popular smoothie and the smoothie my husband has every day: Banana Blue. I don’t typically share banana based smoothies since bananas are excluded from the Chef V cleanse because of their high starch and sugar content.
Antioxidants are substances that may prevent cell damage. Berries, kale, and beets are great natural sources of antioxidants. Enjoy ihis super antioxidant smoothie in the morning after your 16 oz. of Organic Green Drink.
My July 4th Red White & Blue Breakfast Smoothie is delicious, good for you, and easy to make. Start off the holiday celebration with this yummy breakfast! Use any smoothie as the base. Top with raspberries or strawberries, blueberries and coconut shreds.
I’ve created this new Immunity Smoothie to start the day. Made with ginger, turmeric, kale and coconut water, it gives me extra strength as I start a busy day.
One of the most popular smoothies (and one of my favorites) at our stores in New Jersey and San Diego, the Tropitaya Smoothie is so refreshing after a yoga class or to cool off on a hot day.
My breakfast smoothie is delicious, good for you, and easy to make. What’s not to like? A Chef V recipe from her retreat in the Hamptons.
A new recipe at our San Diego store and an instant favorite. Pineapple, coconut, kale and sparkling water make a smoothie that is a refreshing, healthy, and delicious taste of the tropics.
Recently it was National Smoothie Day and National Peaches and Cream day so you know we had to make up a healthy Peaches and Cream Smoothie.
Keep it up! After you cleanse, it is important to maintain healthy habits – have 16 oz. of Chef V’s Organic Green Drink first thing in the morning, then followup with a healthy smoothie.
This ginger apple berry smoothie not only tastes great but is loaded with antioxidants to fight free radicals and reduce inflammation.
Shamrock Smoothies are popular around St. Patrick’s Day. However, they are typically not very healthy.
Here is my favorite version of a Shamrock Smoothie. It’s light, healthy, creamy and it tastes so good!
It’s also a low sugar smoothie. Stay skinny and look your best in green with this delicious recipe.
Go red! Research has shown that red fruits and vegetables such as beets and raspberries are nutritional superheroes. So drink up!
My Pumpkin Pie Smoothie tastes rich and decadent – vegan and gluten free as well. I use raw cashews and my own Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend to make this a healthy, delicious treat that won’t make you bloated. –

This Super Smoothie has everything – fresh fruit, avocado for richness, kale for vitamins, ginger for zing, and my protein powder for nutrition. Enjoy it in the morning after your 16 oz. of Organic Green Drink.
Smoothie bowls are growing in popularity. They are easy to make, super nutritious and they look so pretty! I love green smoothie bowls because you can make them all sorts of different flavors on the top or blended in.
