I created a delicious & nutritious green smoothie in my Vitamix that I want to share with y’all! I have the Vitamix 750 Professional Series and it is seriously a life changer! It was a huge investment but probably one of the best I’ve made thus far because I use it at least 2-3 times a day. It does everything- smoothies, nice cream, sauces, condiments, soups, nut butters, nut cheeses, nut milks, grinds whole grains, and sooo much more. It can also make baby food so I’m excited to do that with it one day!
This creamy green smoothie is loaded with antioxidants, plant based protein, ripe fruit, fiber, and healthy fats! It’s the perfect balance of nutrients. I feel like I hit the sweet spot with this green smoothie because it’s not overloaded with fruit or greens but has just the right amount of both. Make sure to blend it really really well until it’s completely homogeneous because there is nothing grosser than chunks of kale in your smoothie. Add a few ice cubes in towards the end because the blender does heat up its continents after blending on high for a while.
here is what you’ll need:
- 3-4 kale leaves
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 apple
- 1 mango
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 cup hemp milk or nut milk of your choice
- few drops of raw honey/agave/maple syrup (optional)
- few ice cubes
- high powered blender (Vitamix is the way to go)
