  • Suggestions for a simple raw green powder?

    Does anyone have some suggestions for a simple, no frills raw green powder? I just received a certain green powder but there's ingredients in it that I don't want like certain herbs, seaweeds, etc. I want a simple green powder with several greens like kale, wheatgrass, broccoli and alfalfa. Berries and other fruits and probiotics are ok, too. I get nervous about ingesting powders that contain unusual or uncommon herbs and plants that "give you energy" or this ot that. I take medication and have physical issues and I am scared that there could be an interaction. I want a raw green powder that is just plain simple! Thanks very much, and I wish you all good health.

    Thanks, Angie, I did indeed have a great birthday. I love my new Champion, what a joy it is to use!

    Angie-guess what? I have a Champion on the way! I'm blessed to have wonderful friends and family and received some money for my birthday (today I'm 50!) and I've been wanting one, especially for the homogenizer feature. Because you're right, when it comes to that recipe for example, a food processor I imagine just wouldn't cut it. At any rate, I'm excited. Tomorrow I'm buying lentils and will get started on sprouting them, I'm looking forward to using them in various ways as an alternative to relying on nuts so much!

    I just found the sprout balls recipe. It calls for 2 cups each dried figs, dates, prunes, and apricots (geez, that's alot of dried fruit! I'm sure there's a way to halve the recipe). Then 1 cup of wheat berry sprouts. It then says to chop the fruit into small pieces and put them and the sprouts through a food grinder (I guess a food processor or blender would work; it might take patience!) Then...roll the paste into balls and then they can be rolled into sesame seeds, crushed sunflower seeds, etc. This is where our imagination comes in I guess. Instead of wheat berry sprouts others could be used instead. These balls can be refrigerated or even frozen and would last a long time so maybe the expense and labor would be worth it. Anyways it may be worth a try!

    I'm with you, Angie, wouldn't living in California be nice? Avocados are pricey so I only get them occasionally, plus half the time  at the store they're too overripe. I'll try that pudding, and I never thought of freezing them! I know there are recipes for avocado salad dressings too so that might be an idea.  I use sunflower seeds more now myself, but I haven't grown lentil sprouts yet. I think I need more protein in my diet so I will start growing those, too. I think I saw a recipe somewhere for sprout balls-I'm not sure what the base was though, maybe it was dried fruit or possibly a nut or seed base. I'll try googling it-I suppose they could be sweet or savory though. It's fun to think out of the box!
