My (Actually Delicious!) Beauty Smoothie

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. He's pondering why I didn't name this recipe The Frog.

My Best Vitamix Green Smoothie Recipe
So creamy - this is not another boring green juice.
Makes 40 ounces

Throw the following into the blender:
  • 1 Cup Cold Water
  • 2 Tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 can Pineapple with Juice (10 ounces)
Then add:
  • 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 Celery Stalks
  • 1 Small Parsley Sprig
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.

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


Sexy Nerd usually hates my Vitamix concoctions, but even he says this is the perfect green drink to enjoy while gardening.
