Easiest Green Smoothie EVAH.

by Sarah Villafranco, MD /

So easy, you almost feel like you're missing something!

You know I love my Vitamix.  Like, it's a member of my family.  So, if you don't have one, and you like to blend things, you should consider the investment.  Mine is going on ten years old and still strong as a team of oxen.  (Really, it is -  although, also, it was also fun to use the word oxen in a blog post.)  But enough about the blender.  Here is the easiest green smoothie ever - enjoy!!


Ginger Zinger Green Smoothie

Combine in a (hopefully) Vitamix:

1 peeled cucumber
1 peeled frozen banana
1 peeled knob of ginger (big one for a ginger kick!)
5 pieces of kale (stems removed, especially if you don't have a Vitamix)
1/4 pineapple, peel removed
Splash of vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt

Blend and enjoy!  Makes 2 servings.

I tried it. You may want to put less ginger because it is pretty spicy, but it’s great!
