Brad Gruno is the founder and CEO of Brad's Raw Foods and a champion of the plant-based diet, which consists largely of fresh salads, juices, and his popular kale chips. His new book, Brad's Raw Made Easy, contains a slew of recipes for meals, snacks, desserts, and of course, smoothies, that fit into a raw foods diet. Here's one of his favorites.
