I read an article today about Kris Carr. She regained her health and took cancer under control by switching to a vegan diet. She wrote the books “Crazy Sexy Cancer” and “Crazy Sexy Diet.” This is my version of her “Crazy Sexy Green Smoothie.” I didn’t have romaine lettuce, so I left it out. I switched out the spring water for green tea. I added lots of ice, a little bit of metabolism reving minced ginger and the juice of one lime.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never heard of eating an avocado without lime! This smoothie is silky smooth and pretty!! It’s my new favorite!! I might serve it to the hubby as Chilled Avocado and Pear Soup.
