In the Kitchen

mixing it up – green smoothie

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I FINALLY used my Vitamix in January.

After having it for 3 months and being scared of the clean up process I took the plunge.

And you know what? It’s a BREEZE to clean up. Seriously. I’ve wasted months of not using this!

So to makeup for lost time, I told G that February was going to be my month of experimenting with my new BFF.

So far in January and February, I’ve made soup, peanut butter, and two smoothies – one of which I will tell you about today!

For my green smoothie {currently my favorite} I use the following recipe:

  • few slices of frozen peaches {they act as my “ice”}
  • an apple {cut into quarters}
  • an orange {peeled and cut into quarters}
  • a half of a banana
  • 1-2 cups of spinach
  • 10 ounces of cold water

And when I finish mixing it all together in my best friend Vitamix, I’m left with about 32 ounces of this green beauty.  It’s thicker than a juice, but the smoothest smoothie.
