For Christmas I got this amazing blender, the Vitamix! It can do everything from making ice- cream to making soups. So I have done a lot of experimenting and loving it!! I originally got it to help me eat more clean and I do but I had no idea how much I would use and depend on it! I now use this thing 1 to 3 times a day! Some of my first experiments have been trying to make up green smoothies that not only taste good to me but for my kids.
Berry Green Smoothie
1 cup blueberries
1 cup straberries
1 clementine orange
1 cup raw Kale
1 cup raw spinach
1/4 cup carrots
1 cup water
a handful of ice
a packet of Stevia
serving size 1 cup. Makes 3 servings
Since I usually make my green smoothies in the morning when my kids are already at school
I freeze theirs in a ice cube tray
than I blend it up to go with their dinner
My kids like it even better this way because its like a slushy!
You should be able to make this with similar results in a regular blender. I would use the ice crushing setting chop up the veggies a little finer and add water as it is blending.
I want to know what you think if you try it! Its not that bad I promise!!
