it's spinach day...

Today's green was Spinach!

 I buy the big bags of baby spinach at Costco and just put them right into the freezer.  Each individual leaf freezes perfectly giving me fresh spinach whenever I want some!

So far spinach is my favorite smoothie green!  I find that spinach creates a nice smooth, creamy texture in my green smoothie... and has a mild flavor... not that you could hardly tell with all the puckery flavor of the added fruit!

Today's fruit included 1/2 juice of a lemon, a whole orange, a whole apple, a couple frozen pears, some mixed frozen fruit.

And approximately 1 1/2 to 2 cups of frozen baby spinach!

Blended in my Vita Mix with about 2 cups of water... and TOTALLY enjoyed!!!

today's green is Kale...

Just finished putting together my fruity green smoothie!

I rotate my greens everyday... today is Kale!

Into my Vita Mix blender go:
juice of half a lemon, an apple, an orange, a slice of pineapple, seeds of a pomegranate and a bunch of kale!

Washing up my Kale in my favorite organic cleaner, Shaklee's Basic-H2.  Email me for a sample of Basic-H2!
