My Favorite Green Juice Recipe: The Blonde Vegan


Instagram megastar Jordan Younger shares a greened-up version of her signature "tie-dye" smoothie, which tastes as groovy as it looks.

Blogger Jordan Younger—of The Blonde Vegan fame—swears she’s just a vegan gal hoping to share recipes and inspire a few folks. But she’s also a legit Instagram star, thanks to a steady stream of truly drool-worthy food photos.

And like everyone on the internet, Younger’s dealt with her share of controversy: When the 23-year-old posted a before-and-after photo showing that she’d shed 10 pounds from her already trim frame by going plant-based, some followers questioned her diet. But while veganism occasionally tests her resolve (“Sometimes my typical dinner of veggies with a grain and a legume just doesn’t sound good, and I wonder if I should be eating freshwater fish or free-range eggs,” she admits), Younger says it’s done wonders for her well-being.

“I don’t suffer from migraines or stomach issues anymore, and I’m proud of the commitment I’ve made,” says the California-native now living in New York. “Some totally missed that point.”

Part of that commitment means drinking green juices and smoothies every day, which she also relies on as an on-the-go yoga instructor. And she’s developed a signature “tie-dye” smoothie of her own that blends two recipes together. Here’s how to make it. It’s totally Instagram-worthy, obviously. —Jamie McKillop

Party On The Top, Party On The Bottom Tie-Dye Smoothie

For this smoothie with presentation wow-factor, you’ll essentially make two recipes then blend them together.

Green Portion
A Tie Dye Green Smoothie by the Blonde Vegan.1 cup spinach
1 banana
1/4 cup blueberries
2 Tbsp spirulina powder (optional)
1/3 cup almond milk
3 ice cubes

Pink Portion
5 strawberries
5 raspberries
5 cherries
1/2 banana
1 Tbsp acai powder (optional)
1/3 cup almond milk
3 ice cubes

Blend the green portion and set aside, then rinse the blender (very important), and prepare the pink portion. Pour roughly a quarter of the green portion into a glass, followed by the pink, then repeat. A super-helpful pouring tip: decanting into the glass from high above will help you get that tie-dye look.

Since the portions are a similar consistency, the colors should tie-dye well, but if it doesn’t look perfect, don’t stress. It’ll still be delicious!
