Vegan Holiday Juice Recipe from Iconic Artist Peter Max

Peter Max

Here is a delicious breakfast recipe from famous pop artist, Peter Max, who has been a vegan for over 4 decades.  He was introduced to ‘Blended Salads’ through his friend, Dr. Joel Fuhrman and now swears by them every Thanksgiving and Christmas morning.

“Today they’re known as fresh-pressed juices and smoothies, and thankfully they have become so popular and accessible to get. Fruits and vegetables give me energy and help keep me feeling young. I hope this recipe does the same for you.”

Acclaimed for his bold, cosmic art from the ’60s and ’70s and colorful, expressionist paintings to this day including portraits and celebrity commissions, Max has been the official artist for six GRAMMY Awards, five Super Bowls, the NHL All-Star Game, the U.S. Winter Olympics, World Cup USA, the Indy 500, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and many other notable events in sports and music. His portraits have honored U.S. Presidents, foreign dignitaries, rock stars and jazz musicians, movie stars and sports icons. Max’s impressive resume goes far beyond his world-famous bold, colorful artwork, as he is acknowledged for his global charity work – being an active environmentalist and defender of animal and human rights.

“I love being with my family and friends for the holidays. I have been so blessed and have so much to be thankful for. As a vegan, I enjoy eating at one of my favorite vegan restaurants in New York for Thanksgiving- Mana or Candle Cafe. I love to order harvest vegetable soups like butternut squash or pumpkin. Then maybe some linguine or orricette with tomatoes, cranberries, pumpkin seeds and spinach. The chefs at these restaurants are amazing. I love seasonal vegetables and fruits—sautéed string beans with garlic, sweet potatoes, cranberries, pomegranates and tofu cheesecake with berries for dessert,” said Max. “We live in such a bountiful country and at Thanksgiving I’m especially grateful for so many locally-sourced, organic, plant-based foods.”

Below is the recipe for Peter Max’s favorite ‘Blended Salad':

‘The Pomeberry Green’

  • 2 oz of pomegranate juice
  • 10 oz blueberries
  • 4 oz of baby romaine lettuce
  • 2 oz of baby spinach leaves
  • 2-3 dates
  • Press all through your favorite juicer or blender until all the wonderful flavor and nutrients are in your glass.

For the past five decades, Peter Max’s art has been part of the fabric of American pop culture – from his numerous museum and gallery exhibitions to a giant Moscow Music Peace Festival stage, a six-hundred-foot-long Woodstock ’99 Music Festival stage, a two-hundred-fifty-foot-long billboard flanking the U.S. Pavilion at the World’s Fair in Seville, Spain, the hull of a giant Norwegian Lines cruise ship, and Dale Earnhardt’s NASCAR race car. Max has been official artist for six GRAMMY Awards, five Super Bowls, the NHL All-Star Game, the 2000 World Series, the 2000 Kentucky Derby, the U.S. Winter Olympics, World Cup USA, the Indy 500, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and many other notable events in sports and music. Max’s portraits have honored U.S. Presidents, foreign dignitaries, rock stars and jazz musicians, movie stars and sports icons.
