Green Smoothie Recipe

Basics of the recipe:

  • Work up to using a large handful of greens meaning approximately half of blender but you can start with the amount that you can stand
  • Add fruit, a banana plus 1-3 more
  • Water, very important, fill halfway to the level of the greens and fruit
  • Vitamix – choose a medium setting and throw everything in
  • Blender – best to core your apples, cut up your fruit, chop your greens, blend on low 1 min. and high for 1-2 minutes going for a pureed consistency
  • Add orange juice as part of your water amount or agave for additional sweetness
