This is my first green smoothie and is a recreation of the ingredients I tasted at a neighbor's
1 handful of baby spinach
1 handful of baby kale
1 whole lemon (quartered)
2 apples (I used small gala apples)
1 celery stalk
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 cup frozen mango (purchased) --note I didn't measure just added to blender
1/2 cup frozen pineapple (purchased) ---not measured
~ 2 cups cold water
Ice cubes (handful or two)
The ingredients are now placed in order of entry into the blender (VitaMix). You should add liquid ingredients, then frozen fruit, then cucumbers, apples and celery and finaly the greens.
Start blender on slow to begin incorporation and blending of ingredients then blend on high until smooth or desired consistency.
