My Wonder Smoothie Recipe

Those of you who’ve only followed my website for a few years or less may not know it from the current content, but the very first set of articles I wrote online were about exercise and bodybuilding, back in 2001. Go ahead, browse through my archives to see what I mean.

Given that I’ve started bodybuilding once more in recent months, it’s only fitting I write about it again, this time to share my Wonder Smoothie recipe. It’s what I use to recover from my workouts and build muscle. The best part of this smoothie is that it uses raw food ingredients, so anyone can drink it, whether they’re raw foodists like me, or vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters.

That’s right, you may not think raw food and bodybuilding go together but they do. Since I’ve started bodybuilding again, I’ve been amazed with my progress and ability to put on lean muscle in just a few months, while on a 60-80% raw food diet (and some cooked vegan food). I’m going to share my special list of superfoods and ingredients with you below, and I hope my Wonder Smoothie will benefit you as much as it has benefitted me.

Muscle Building and Workout Recovery Smoothie:

  • Chlorella: 1 tsp
  • Spirulina: 1 tsp
  • Mesquite: 1 tsp
  • Gynostemma: 1/2 tsp
  • Baobab: 1/2 tsp
  • Suma Root: 1/2 tsp
  • Triphala: 1/2 tsp
  • Rose Hip: 1/2 tsp
  • Methylsulfonylmethane: 1/2 tsp
  • Coconut Butter: 1 tsp
  • Hemp Seeds: 1-2 tbsp
  • Sesame Seeds: 2-3 tbsp
  • Alkaline Water: as needed
  • Raw Honey: as needed
  • Raw Protein: 11/2-2 scoops

The instructions are simple: blend the sesame and hemp seeds with water and honey first to get the raw milk. Then add in the rest of the ingredients and blend the whole thing again to a typical smoothie texture.

And here’s what I look like these days…

    • Pe site-ul Ligiei, da. Pe site-ul meu nu, fiindca e in limba engleza inca din 2000 incoace si audienta mea este in preponderenta (>90%) americana sau britanica. Dar iti pot raspunde in limba romana la comentarii, dupa cum vezi aici 🙂

    • Joseph, you can always Google them and find out how to get them. Most of them are available in Romania. One source would be our online store, Raw Vegan Mall (rawveganmall.ro).


  3. Great! Thanks for sharing. This is what Dan wanted to ask you a few months ago but never go to so this is perfect!

    speaking of which – anyone got some clues on why and what I could do about this issue I am having with my abdomen ?
    Each time I try to do these exercises my abdominal muscle jams (i.e. would not relax any longer) after only about 20 – 25 excerscises. I have tried exercisig daily thinking it could be just my fat belly out of shape, but even in two months all I could do was a maximum of 35 abdomens 😦
    This problem was not with me since forever, I recall being able to exercise until exhaustion.


    • If your muscles are cramping up, see a doctor, it’s likely a deficiency of magnesium and/or calcium. Run some lab tests on your blood and have a doctor interpret them, see what he/she says.
