"emerald Ecstasy" Green Smoothie

This is the delicious Green Smoothie recipe that I make and serve at my Vita-Mix sales demonstrations. It always "wows the crowd" when something that is so bright green tastes so surprisingly delicious! It is designed for a Vita-Mix so I don't know how it would work in any other kitchen appliance. Add ingredients into the 64 oz. container in the following order:

Ready In:
6mins

Units:

ingredients

  • 2 -3 cups green grapes (with seeds is healthier)
  • 1 large banana (skin removed)
  • 14 of a large fresh pineapple (leave the center in, it has most of the bromelain) or 1/3 of a small fresh pineapple (leave the center in, it has most of the bromelain)
  • 12 apple (seeds and stem is o.k. if using a Vita-Mix)
  • 2 -3 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 - 2 12 cups ice, to the top of the container

directions

  • Turn the machine quickly from variable speed 1 to 10 then flip the switch to high. Push the ingredients down into the blades until the entire mixture is blending. I find it easier to push the food continuously down one corner of the container and eventually it begins to blend. The apple may require a bit of "pounding" before it begins to mix (this is a great anger management recipe! :-).
  • When the mixture is first blending it should be so thick and slushy (from the ice) that it is thick like a thick "slushy". If it is too liquid at the beginning, add more ice so it is thick and "slushy". This allows you to blend for 1-2 minutes without warming the drink up from the friction of the blades. It also allows you to break the foods down to the most bioavailable (cellular) level.
  • This is a "beginner" Green Smoothie that 98% of the population will love!

    This was really good! I've never made a green smoothie before, this was perfect! My husband & 3 year old also loved it. The 3 year old had 2 glasses of it. She never eats green leafy veggies; this is a great way to get them in her.

    This was really good! I'm not a big fan of the flavor of banana in general so I only used half a banana and two dollops of plain nonfat yogurt to make it creamy.

    Very good!! I add flax seeds and protien powder to add protien & fats and make it a meal. My boy who will not eat veggies at all will drink this!! (we just got our vitamix a few days ago & love it!)
