This is the ultimate green smoothie recipe. This green smoothie recipe is packed with antioxidants, fiber and raw nutrients which are easily utilized and absorbed.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups hazelnut or almond milk (original, unsweetened is best)
  • 2-4 large leaves of green kale, dino kale, Swiss chard, etc. (or 2-4 oz. baby spinach leaves)
  • 1 carrot
  • 2/3 cup ice cubes
  • 1 medium orange, peeled and quartered (leave some of the white peel for the extra nutrients)
  • 1 medium apple, quartered
  • 1/2 – 2/3 cup berries, (blueberries, acai, raspberries, strawberries, etc.) or grapes or fresh pineapple
  • 1/2 large banana or 1 small banana
  • 1/2 avocado

Directions

  1. In a Vita Mix (or powerful blender), put hazelnut or almond milk, green leaves, carrot and ice cubes and turn on to high, slowly, until blended smooth. 
  2. Turn to low and add apple, orange and berry/pineapple choice and turn to high until smooth. 
  3. Turn to low again and add banana and avocado and turn to high until smooth.
  4. Note:
  5. It’s important to rotate the greens and berries.  It’s fun to experiment with other kinds of fresh fruit.  I like the pineapple the best.  Mango is another favorite.
