Favorite Green Smoothie - Blentec - Vita Mix

Favorite Green Smoothie - Blentec - Vita Mix
Great way to start the day - 
  • 1 Cup water
  • Handful of spinach - I use organic baby spinach from Costco (very sweet)
  • 2 tablespoons of ground flax
  • 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • Stevia or Agave to taste 
  • Blend these together before adding the next ingredients
    • This ensures the above items are liquid
  • 1/2 banana
  • chopped pineapple
  • apple
  • strawberries (I use frozen in the winter)
    • ice - to taste
Variations to this is to substitute almond or coconut milk for the water.
Or use other frozen fruit (I use the frozen fruit mix from Costco often).  

For a unique taste - add a handful of pecans and raisins to the mix.  

Depending on the amount of water used, this will make two 'meals'.  I like to make this in the evening and it will be chilled and ready for the AM.  Therefore, I do not need to make any noise in the house in the morning.
