A Green Smoothie – that doesn’t taste green!

Two green smoothies, whipped to perfection!

Green smoothies. Many are very (very) green tasting, some are very acidic, I just haven’t found one I love, until now… I took the green smoothie recipe from Vitamix and changed it a bit. It came out delightful (and packed with goodness)! With just a few ingredients and the flip of a switch, breakfast is served!

Let me just say… I LOVE the color of this smoothie! Farrow & Ball, Benjamin Moore, etc. need to color match and name it Going Green Smoothie!

This recipe, contained the following ingredients- (makes 1 smoothie):

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 fresh peach, washed, pitted, with peel
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes

This is the Going Green Smoothie recipe by Vitamix, the only thing I changed is that I used a fresh peach instead of 1 cup of green grapes.

Yesterday I used almond milk (vanilla, unsweetened), a handful of carrot slice, two big handfuls of spinach, a peach and two frozen bananas (for 2 of us). Utter heaven…

The day prior to that I added frozen blueberries and didn’t have a peach to the above recipe – it tasted good but was visually unappealing. Which was fine, because, like I said – it tasted fabulous.

I love drinking my breakfast – I’m much better at eating in the morning if I can drink it. Definitely MUCH better at getting extra veggies/fruits in the mix early in the day. This kept me going far longer than I anticipated. #winwin
