Directions for: Green Smoothie


1 ripe banana

1 cup fresh or frozen organic fruit (e.g., berries, mango, kiwi, peach, pear, cherries), chopped if needed

1 cup packed organic baby spinach

½ cup fruit juice (pear, mango, or berry nectar is nice)

1 tsp spirulina (optional)

1 tsp greens powder blend (optional)

1/4-1/2 cup filtered water


1. Add the banana, fruit, spinach, juice, and spirulina into a blender or food processor.

2. Whirl ingredients for about 30 seconds, until all fruit has been processed. Slowly add water and re-blend to desired consistency.

3. Pour into a glass and enjoy.

4. Note: For a creemier smoothie, substitute non-dairy milk for the juice. While blending, you may add 1 tbsp freshly ground flax seeds or anything else you may like in your smoothie.
