Not-So-Green Smoothies

Our family has been enjoying “green smoothies” for some time now, so called because of their content, not their color. The smoothie in the picture is a green smoothie, loaded with spinach and other greens, but it’s bright pinkish-purple! The secret to getting this gorgeous color is simple. Just use lots of berries, and add some raw (or frozen) BEET! You can’t really taste it, but it’s so good for you!

Basic Recipe for Green Smoothies

(You must use a Vitamix or Blendtec to get everything liquified without burning out your blender!)

Blend well 3 c. cold water plus a few handfuls of greens and sprouts (up to 6 c. line). Add frozen and fresh fruit until filled to the top and blend until smooth. We also throw in other ingredients, such as fresh mint, celery, carrots, hemp protein powder, ginger, avocado, cacao nibs, hemp, chia or flax seeds, just to name a few!
