VT put in a tall order when we asked Elliott Prag to come up with four vegetable-centric smoothies that met the following requirements: they could be made without a heavy-duty blender or juicer; they came in multiple colors (not just green); and they pleased the demanding palates of our staff.
To our delight, he nailed the assignment. The results were refreshments we’d blend up for an energizing breakfast or a cool snack on a hot afternoon. And for all you readers with a juicer, the recipes can also be made rawjust purée the ingredients and skip the cooking steps.
