Here is the quick clip that I shot 2 weeks ago in LA. When we shot it I included a lot more info on the ingredients, but they had cut it down to make it really move and fit into the show. I hope you try it out!
Another delicious recipe you should try out is my truffle recipe, simply delicious!

Thanks for sharing, Kim! Looks yummy!! 🙂
That looks so good!!! I can’t wait until I’m able to add those ingredients back into my diet.
Kimberly, I absolutely love watching all of your videos, reading your blog and learning about nutrition. I am concerned about heart health. A lot of the recipes I’m seeing involves A LOT of fat (i.e., coconut oil, avocado, etc.) While I totally understand these are GOOD fats, I hesitate because I’ve been led to believe by Drs. McDougall, Fuhrman, Campbell and Esselstyn, that it is best to keep any sort of fat, animal and vegetable to bare, bare minimums. I would love to hear your thoughts.
The diet I advocate is consuming a majority of greens. This includes the Green Smoothie and other kinds of green drinks, lots of different kinds of salads, sprouts, etc. My diet does not promote the use of animal products- dairy, meat, eggs, etc. By that alone we are cutting out lots of fat. Avocados are a good fat that is very useful for those in a transition diet, as well as the long-term diet for those to stay on a plan. The recipes that include coconut oil are desserts, which are only to be used in moderation! Whatever the recipe calls for would be divided into a fraction to account for the daily dosage for one person.
This is where individualization comes into play, and why I am writing a whole book to explain all these issues. 🙂 Most of us should limit all fat- including healthy oils. Some of us need to have more fat because we have trouble maintaining our weight. I have a wide range of clients, and our blog here is general. For my overweight clients, I recommend limiting nuts to about one ounce a day max (or avoiding in the beginning), cutting out oil completely, and limiting daily fat to 1/2 of a large avocado or 1 small avocado.
Fat becomes very problematic when it is heated, as in heated, oxidized oils, and when the rest of the diet contains refined carbs and starches, as well as a minimum of nutrient-dense plant food.
Kimberly, is there a particular brand of coconut water you prefer to use? Again, love your blog, I learn so much
I like Vita Coco !
This looks delish Kim! Can’t wait to make it! You are the best, thank you! <3
I used to have this smoothie once a day but started gaining weight… argh. maybe its just me. As soon as I stopped the weight fell off.
Hi Hollie! Depending on your current condition, this might not be the best for you. For instance, if someone is having a hard time losing weight, or has a yeast imbalance in their body, the liver would have a hard time metabolizing any kind of fat, even good fat. Why don’t you stick to the green smoothie, and have lots of salads? If you have more specific questions about your overall diet, maybe you want to think about doing a nutrition consultation. You can email me at email@example.com.
I’ve frozen the ultimate green smoothie, just needed a little re-whirling in the vitamixer once it thawed. Can this one be frozen as well? Thanks for all you do
Hi Kimberly, finding you is going to be my lifesaver, I just know it! I am already inspired by your naturally healthy beauty and it’s proof you practice what you preach. Just bought the book and have taken a quick glance, have one question. You say to avoid agave in the book, can you elaborate on why we should or should not use it. Thank you.
Great job. Keep up the good work! I have added a link to your homepage on my website’s friends page. Hope this will help you to get more traffic.
Would nuts be considered as a fat or protein? Are beans considered a starch or a protein? When is the best time to eat them?
I thought fruit and fat didn’t mix? Acai berries+almonds+coconut?
What about hemp powder? Protein or starch?
things i wanted to say is that i really need some sleep and that this website is starting to sound good
maybe you’ll try the smoothies!
I thought Agave was a No-no? High fructose…right?
I’m on day two and feeling great! Trying to figure how to work in hemp and chia seeds into my food planning. I used to have the Life Basic’s Plant Protein shake in the a.m. It is not nearly as good as the GGS… but good and works well in a time-crunch. Is dinner-time (after a salad) the only time I could have the plant protein shake? Thanks for your book, I’ve learned so much!
Both chia and hemp seeds can be used in smoothies and cereal!
Hemp seeds can also be added to salads and granola.
Hope this helped!
I also have a nuts and beans question? Is it okay to combine pine nuts with avocado or are both and therefore should not be combined? What about lentils and chick peas – can they be combined? What is the best time to eat nuts and beans?
awesome that’s sooo very hot i nearly came merely via reading through it alone
