You know I love my Vitamix. Like, it's a member of my family. So, if you don't have one, and you like to blend things, you should consider the investment. Mine is going on ten years old and still strong as a team of oxen. (Really, it is. Also, it was also fun to use the word oxen in a blog post.) But enough about the blender. Here is the easiest green smoothie ever. I make this when I need something super light and healthy, crave a dose of hydration and vitamins, or my digestive system needs a kick in the rump. Enjoy!!
Ginger Zinger Green Smoothie
Combine in a (hopefully) Vitamix:
1 peeled cucumber
1 peeled frozen banana
1 peeled knob of ginger (big one for a ginger kick!)
5 pieces of kale (stems removed, especially if you don't have a Vitamix)
1/4 pineapple, peel removed
Splash of vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
Blend and enjoy! Makes 2 servings.
With love and green goodness from us to you,
