Keep it Simple Smoothie

IMG_4068

A smoothie can be a tasty, quick and efficient delivery system for several servings of fruit and/or veggies at one time. This recipe provides an easy to prepare method using fruits and vegetables you probably have on hand. You don’t need a $400 blender either, just a humble household model will do.

Once you see how truly easy smoothie-making can be, play around with the fruits, substituting melon or kiwi for the pineapple, apple juice for orange, mango chunks for banana–you get the idea. It’s not an exact science.

Simple Green Smoothie

Large handful fresh spinach or other dark, leafy greens (chard, kale, etc.)

1 ripe banana, fresh or frozen

1 cup frozen pineapple chunks

1/2 cup orange juice

Place greens in blender with juice and puree until smooth. Add banana in chunks along with pineapple and a bit more liquid if needed ( I use ice cold water). Blend it up and enjoy!
