Wow!  Do you really want to shake up your mouth?  The smoothie today just burst with flavor and was absolutely amazing.  With four of us drinking, my only regret was that it went so fast.

Green smoothie recipe for today:  Glorious Orange

2 Bananas

8 ounces of spinach

2 Valencia oranges (quartered with peel removed)

4 Gala apples (cored with skin on)

2 cups of water

2 handfuls of ice

Blend together in the Vitamix machine for about 45 seconds and done!

The flavor of this smoothie was both refreshing and the orange taste just jumped out.  So much so that the first thought to my mind was glorious orange and thus the name. 

Notice that my smoothies are all fairly similar.  I rotate the greens between several different types (romaine lettuce, red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, spinach, red chard, rainbow chard, green chard, lacinto kale, and green bushy kale) and occasionally throw in a collard green or a dandelion green.  There are many others that you can use as well.  I have just drifted toward the less bitter greens.  Like argula I just could not stomach.  So try them all and see what you like the best. 

For fruit, I just grab and combine whatever I have on my kitchen counter or in the fridge.  I buy my fruit from a local organic food coop or stores like Native Sun or Whole Foods.  I only use organic produce since I prefer my food without the poisonous pesticides and chemicals that are on the regular produce. 

You can also add a whole slew of other produce:  cucumbers, tomatoes, cilantro etc.  Make it so that it tastes good to you.  I just toss things together and if it tastes awful, we just dump it out and try a different combination.  You can have a whole lot of fun with this.

I also use only purified water since I do not want chlorinated compounds, flouride and all the other chemicals that come in through the municipal water system. 

The important thing is that you create a delightful and healthy habit forming smoothie that fills you full of fruits and vegetables every day.  My kids who are reluctant to eat salads and fruits and veggies, like a green smoothie. 

Not only do you feel good after having the smoothie, you look good too as you develop a really healthy complexion.

I hope that you enjoy this smoothie today as much as I did!
