Raw Food Levi shares his recipe for Pear & Spinach Smoothie. “This is my favourite fall smoothie,” Levi says. “We make it most when we can get fresh Bartlett pears from my Grandpa and Grandma’s farm. My Mom and I like it just plain, but my Dad likes it with some fresh mint. I’ve had a bunch of my friends try this smoothie, and they all like it, too!”
Levi is 10 years old and has been raw since he was born. He’s very happy about that because he never gets sick, has tons of energy and loves eating fruit and huge salads! Although Levi lives in a small Central Canadian town where he is quite unique as a raw vegan, he lives a fairly normal life. He attends public school, has lots of friends, plays sports, goes to birthday parties and has sleepovers—just like a regular kid!
Levi loves hockey, lacrosse and soccer. He has been learning to ride a motocross bike and recently ran a triathlon at The Woodstock Fruit Festival. All on just fruits and veggies! Levi’s website is RawFoodLevi.com. He is the author of Raw Food For Kids. Watch Levi on YouTube and follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
