It's A Keeper Green Smoothie

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I finally have a Green Smoothie that I enjoy!!! I found a good recipe, right here on Spark, and tweaked it to suit my needs... The original was called Goin' Green Smoothie, submitted by PESCETARIAN... Thank you for the help!!!

Here's my version.

It's a Keeper Green Smoothie Happy Hen

2.5 cups Spinach Leaves - Packed measure
1 Orange - Peeled and seeded
1 Cup cold water - or Ice Water to equal 1 cup
1 medium Banana - Fresh or Frozen
1 Pear - Cored
1-2 TBS Flaxseeds (I lightly toast and grind mine... I love chewing on the flaxseeds as I drink my smoothie)

Blend first three ingredients until completely smooth with no spinach bits.
Then add the fruit, pulsing between each one for easier blending, then add the flaxseed and blend well.

Makes 3.5 Cups Takes me most of the afternoon to drink it all.
