This smoothie looks totaly yummy. I only knew the green smoothie with spinach, banana and other fruit but this version with yoghurt ia an absolutely eye candy! Mhhh!
Mmm....what can I say more?
Yummy. I am intrigued by how the tempering will work with this smoothie. Seems all refreshing
Beautiful idea, Laksmi!
Yes please.... This smoothie is excellent to quench my thirst during the hot OZ summer days :)Gorgeous photos...
Enchanting! This looks delicious. This could be pre and post christmas detox.
The smoothie looks delightful!!! I loved the tulsi garnish :)
Excellent picture! Looks delicious. So tempted to try is. Thanks Lakshmi!
That looks so utterly beautiful and tempting!
The photos are so beautiful again! Very healthy green smoothie! :)
I need to start adding more veggies to my smoothies. Great recipe!
Your pics are soooooo beautiful!
Gosh! breathtaking.. Lakshmi, each time I open your site wondering how you'll blow me away and I'm never disappointed.. :)On a second note, have never tried avocado with a hing seasoning.. Interesting take..And those green glasses are too cute!
This will be such a refreshing drink! It's like Indian Raita in a smoothie form! I am sure I can drink up a few mugs of these :)
I would be on a green smoothie detox whole of my life if this was on the menu. Gorgeous photos, Lakshmi :) What camera and lens do you shoot with?
What a refreshing drink :) I like that it's got just the perfect color of green. Not too much to make it look TOO healthy!
Thank you for the kind comments.Kiran, I'm using 40D Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM.
Lakshmi, your pictures amaze me every time. You can even make a green smoothie look like a gorgeous drink! Beautiful shots.
Oh Lakshmi this sounds like liquid raita :) the tadka on the top of beautiful and this is what makes me think of a raita or a light summer yogurt soup. The first photograph of the glistening oil is breathtaking.(adore the new format to read/print recipes)
Lakshmi, I am detoxed already...looking at these photographs!!
Gorgeous shots! So ethereal and lovely.
What a lovely recipe! This is my detox day (I'm having 2 per week these days) and I think I'll have that for dinner :-). Thanks so much for a wonderful idea!Lakshmi, I have to say, I found your blog through Pinterest, and I am so impressed - your photographs are absolutely amazing (it's actually really difficult to look at them today, when I can only eat unprocessed veggies ;-) ). I am absolutely in love with your site, and will be following from now on! You've got a new fan :-)
Thank you.Soma, liquid raita it is :-)Cooking Rookie, welcome! I admire your determination to eat healthy. Since I started blogging, my diet has become worse!
gorgeous green. so refreshing & healthy....made a similar version months ago. i love smoothies !
What gorgeous photos! I love having ideas for healthy drinks and dishes for this time of year.
It's a shame that using dairy yoghurt you will essentially negate the benefits of the greens! Studies show that e.g. berries, tea and cocoa lose most of their health benefits if consumed with dairy, because it contains the antinutrient casein.Doesn't make much sense to combine healthful veggies with something that isn't just junk food but anti-food, that's not detox, that's just "tox".
That is really interesting. Could you point me to the studies so I can check the evidence base
Maija, thanks for the information. I'm not an expert in health food diet, nor I'm propagating one. According to ayurveda, yoghurt is incompatible with sour fruits/citrus, mangoes, melons, nightshades and milk for example. Ayurveda is more forgiving regarding food combining than many modern diet recommendations. It is based on different principles.It is the first time I hear yoghurt to be called junk food. For whatever reason, it is provocative :-)!
Green smoothies are one of my favorite things to make. Whenever I make a smoothie I add spinach. I love that you can't taste it. :) Martin even likes them.
