Spinach Basil Lime-Aid

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by jennifem

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).

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]
