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.
- Add 1 cup cold water
- 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.
- 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.
- Blend until smooth. (use short bursts if necessary)
- Drink and enjoy!
