Seeing Green

Basic Green Smoothie Recipe

A powerful blender like a VitaMix is best, but any blender will do. The resulting smoothie may just not be as smooth.

  1. Add 1 cup cold water
  2. Add 2-3 fruits, totalling about 2-3 cups. Common fruits are apple, banana, peach, pear, mango, papaya, pineapple and berries like strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, etc.
  3. Finally, add about 2 cups of chopped greens. Mild tasting greens include spinach, lettuce, kale, celery, Swiss Chard and parsley. Stronger greens include turnips greens, broccoli leaves, endive, arugula, chicory, cabbage and mustard greens.
  4. Blend until smooth. (use short bursts if necessary)
  5. Drink and enjoy!
