Cindy’s Midday Smoothie

3 05 2014

This is a bright smoothie recipe, packed with antioxidants. You can bump up the amount of spinach in smoothies like this because of the fruit, which masks the taste of spinach itself. Leaving it both delicious, and nutritious!

Cindy's Midday Smoothie

The following makes 3 cups (adapted from Vitamix Whole Food Recipes):

  • 1 orange, peeled and halved
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 1 apple, quartered and seeded
  • 2 cups packed fresh spinach
  • 4 frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup ice

Put all ingredients in a high-powered blender – if using a Vitamix, be sure to put them in the order listed. Secure lid and turn on high. Blend until smooth, about 45 seconds, or until desired consistency is reached.

Transfer to glasses and either serve immediately, or keep cool in the fridge until ready to serve.
