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, add a heaping cup of ice. After everything is mixed together, top off the water to the 40 ounce line and re-blend.
The warm weather has finally returned to Albuquerque. Sexy Nerd says this is the perfect green drink to enjoy while gardening!
