A Few Smoothie Favorites from Garden of Life fan Chloe Longobardo-Moreno

Posted by: Garden of Life on Friday, July 05, 2013

I’d like to start by saying my husband and I are huge fans of Jordan Rubin & Garden of Life and we’ve been hooked on Garden of Life's amazing supplements since 2004.


Our health journey began with Jordan’s book: Patient Heal Thyself. I have 6 of his books and have learned so much from him. We both went vegan in 2009 and love that Garden of Life has so many wonderful vegan products to choose from. Garden of Life has supplements for everyone...wherever you are in your health journey.


I get excited every time a new product comes out and I’m ultra-excited about the new Raw Fit protein powder. It’s raw, vegan and gluten free and gets you into fat burning mode: 1 serving has 28 grams of raw plant based protein-a complete protein with 13 organic sprouts & it has 4 grams of fiber. I love that it’s formulated with chromium, cinnamon, green coffee bean extract (svetol), ashwagandha, baobab, daikon radish, alfalfa, chlorella, probiotics, enzymes and much more.


Raw Fit tastes great, it’s filling and it really does help with fighting cravings! So far I’ve tried it with organic rice milk, organic almond milk and organic soy milk. I’d like to try it with hemp milk next. I have to also give a shout out to Raw Protein & Raw Meal-they’re amazing vegan protein powders too! I’m sure you’ll be in smoothie heaven when you try them. I hope you enjoy the 3 fun recipes below:



RAW Fit-ccino Coffee-Cacao Smoothie


8–16 oz. of almond milk or your favorite vegan milk 

1 scoop RAW Fit protein powder

Stevia drops or powder to taste (I have a container of Whole Food’s 365 stevia powder-it comes with the little scoop. I add in 1-2 scoops. Sweetleaf English toffee stevia drops would be really great with this smoothie) or use your favorite natural sweetener

1 heaping Tbsp. of raw cacao powder

1 tsp. of Dandy blend powder (instant) -it’s herbal & caf free with roasted dandelion & chicory roots (if you

don’t have dandilion blend-the raw cacao powder by itself is great...Teeccino herbal coffee would also be

great-but it would need to be brewed & chilled)

Ice cubes & or frozen banana are optional (I have made this smoothie with & without frozen banana...it’s great both ways. If you want it more rich & creamy-add in 1/2 –1 whole frozen banana)


Blend & enjoy each heavenly sip 



Chocolate Hemp Bliss Smoothie with Raw Protein

8-16 oz. hemp milk

Stevia drops or powder to taste (for this recipe I used about 1/2 tsp. of raw green stevia) or use your

favorite natural sweetener

1 scoop chocolate Raw Protein powder

1 heaping tsp. raw maca powder

1 Tbsp. GOL’s organic ex virgin coconut oil

2 organic frozen bananas


Blend & enjoy each heavenly sip 



Beautifying Berry Smoothie with Raw Meal

1 organic frozen banana

1/2 bag of organic frozen blueberries

1 handful of soaked organic goji berries (soak for 10-15 minutes in filtered water...you can drain them or you can use the soak water in the smoothie)

16 oz. filtered water

1 scoop of GOL's raw meal

1 Tbsp. organic flaxseed oil 

Stevia drops or powder to taste-or use your favorite natural sweetener


Blend and enjoy each heavenly sip 



We have many Garden of Life faves; a constant staple we always have in our kitchen is Perfect Food. It’s important to get your greens on. Thank you to Jordan Rubin and Garden of Life for keeping my husband & I healthy!

Nice blog comment chicory I like chicory this is hallty is the valuable herb which for a long time has won popularity in

national medicine.Chicory was also often prescribed by herbalists of recent centuries to cure a whole host of ailments;

the herbalist of the middle ages often recommended herbal remedies made from the chicory roots as tonics, as

laxatives, and as diuretics.

Hello. I am new to your raw meal protein plan and have followed the mixing ratio of 8oz water to one scoop for a snack or 16 oz water for a meal. I shake it up in a bottle blender thing and try to drink it. Should it come out the consistency of mucus? It is slimey and does not taste good at all. I checked the expiration and it doesn't expire for another 9 months.

Am I doing something wrong or is there a better way to drink this?

To Joy: A bottle blender should work just fine but you have to drink it immediately. The longer you wait the thicker it gets and it gets thick quickly! You can always add a little extra liquid (I use unsweetened almond milk and/or coconut water) and you can always add Stevia or even some fresh fruit but careful with the calorie count. I've lost 60 pounds using Raw Meal and Perfect Food Raw so far and I think my biggest surprise is I rarely get hungry and have to remind myself to eat. I have noticed Raw Meal that can rank lower in ratings polls because of the taste but in the age of Flintstones vitamins that's not surprising. On content alone, there is no better product and I have researched them all!
