This is a cold and refreshing, sweet and tart GREEN smoothie. I demonstrate Vitamix blenders using this, and I drink it on a regular basis at home. The spinach can be replaced with one large leaf of kale without the stem (the vitamix can handle it but it is bitter).
- 1 cup green seedless grape
- 1 cup Baby Spinach (fresh loose packed)
- 1⁄8 lime, with rind
- 3 pitted dates
- 2 large fresh sweet basil leaves
- 1 cup ice
- Wash and rinse produce thoroughly. In order, place ingredients into a high powered blender. Blend on high until smooth.
Can't believe that I actually made this! Don't get me wrong ~ It's because I don't care that much for spinach! But since I DO like smoothies a lot, & don't mind trying new ones, well . . . Gotta admit, though, that I enjoyed making this, & it IS a very, very tasty drink! We actually like the combo of spinach, dates (Medjool, for me) &, of course, the spinach! Think I'll keep this recipe around, & thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
