Green Fruit Smoothie

 

Ingredients

Place all ingredients in high powered blender- and blend until smooth

 

Grapes- 3/4 of a cup (I prefer red grapes- I buy grapes with seeds because they are less expensive and my blender is powerful enough to grind them up)

Lemon- about 1/4 of an inch slice- peel and all

Pineapple- 1/2 cup canned or fresh pineapple (I buy canned pineapple in bulk)

1 Banana (I prefer to use a frozen banana, but fresh works as well)

Frozen fruit- 1 cup (I like to use frozen peaches and strawberries/raspberries)

Ground Flaxseed- 1 to 2 TBS

SPINACH- I put as much as I can fit in my blender...anywhere from 1/4 lb. to 1/2 lb. OR for a more nutrient dense smoothie use some dark leafy greens like KALE or COLLARD GREENS.

WATER and ICE- I add these last, the amount depends on how thick I want my smoothie.  I like adding ice- I like the texture, but it is optional.

 

 

This recipe makes a pretty big smoothie- I sometimes share, or other times I eat it all by myself.  You don't have to use all the ingredients either.  You can substitute different fruits if you like.  I always try to use the grapes and the lemon...and of course the SPINACH :)

 

Some people like a less thick smoothie- so add a little less fruit and more water with ice.  This makes it more like a green drink.  This recipe is a good way to get your GREENS in for the day- so I like to add as much SPINACH as I can.

 

MOMMY TIP:  For those of you with children who are scared of the GREEN... place the smoothie in a solid cup with a straw so your child won't see the color...get them to taste it before they see it...and they will love it!
