After reading the book, Finding Ultra, I became very curious about the Vitamix blender. After asking around a bit, I realized I must be the only one without one, so I decided to take the plunge and buy one. My new Vitamix blender arrived this week, so I wasted no time trying some of the green smoothie recipes I’ve been bookmarking. Recipe at bottom.
The smoothie pictured above is terrific and full of good things. What a great way to get all of your veggies and fruits in one serving. You can taste a little bite from the greens, so instead of coconut water, you might try organic apple juice.
Green Smoothie from Dr. Oz
1 cup chopped fresh kale
1 cup chopped fresh or frozen spinach
1½ tbsp hemp seeds
1 tsp chia seeds
1 cup coconut water
A few drops of stevia for added sweetness (optional)
Blend all ingredients in blender, serve over ice. (I did not use any sweetener, and I thought it was fine)
If anyone has a great smoothie recipe, feel free to share!
