Best Vitamix Green Smoothie Recipe

I don't usually (or ever) post Vitamix recipes here. It's not that I don't think people would be interested in trying my homemade Vitamix recipes. My blender creations have just never been good enough to share. In fact, many of them have been borderline revolting.

After much trial and error, however, I am happy to announce that I finally have a delicious Vitamix winner! Just look at this beautiful green smoothie:

Note my dapper Frog Prince admiring its green loveliness.

(And yes, it really is a creamy "Green Smoothie", not a "Green Juice".)

LambAround's Best Vitamix Green Smoothie Recipe
(Makes 40 ounces)

Throw the following into the blender:
  • 1 Mango
  • 1 Orange (or 2 oranges, if yours are itty bitty like mine!)
  • 1 Radish
  • 1 Kale Leaf (a great, big one!)
  • 1/2 a Cucumber
  • 1 Tbsp Flax Seeds
  • 2 Tbsps Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 Can of Pineapple with Juice (10 ounces)
  • 2 Celery Stalks
  • 1 Small Parsley Sprig
  • 1 Cup Water
Before blending, let everything mellow together in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. This way, the chia seeds will have time to soak up the water and get nice and gelatin-y. I love to put everything into my Vitamix blender before bed. This makes an easy, refreshing breakfast drink.

Before blending, add a heaping cup of ice. After everything is mixed together, top off the water to the 40 ounce line and re-blend.

Yum!

The warm weather has finally returned to Albuquerque. Sexy Nerd says this is the perfect green drink to enjoy while gardening!
