Raw Smoothies and Green Juices

Note – for children who won’t easily drink these blended shakes, try adding less greens and more strawberries (other berries, green apple) and/or hemp milk and a sweetener like stevia or lakanto to start. You will be surprised how quickly the children take to these smoothies. Sometimes giving it to them cold and with a straw does the trick. As they heal they will really crave what’s healthy. So, even if they will just take a sip, it’s a step in the right direction.
