Spinach Fruit Smoothie

What you need: 

1/2 cup apple juice
1/2 bunch spinach, chopped
1/2 cucumber, chopped
1 banana
wheat grass powder or other greens
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds

What you do: 

1) Put all ingredients into the blender and let it fly. I recommend putting the lid on the blender to speed clean up.
This is an excellent morning meal, as well as vehicle for herbal extract/tincture supplements. The above amounts create about a quart - one serving for me, two for mere mortals. I can drink the entire concoction before 7 am and be fine until lunch.

Preparation Time: 
5 minutes
Cooking Time: 
Servings: 
1 to 2

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This smoothie is the best drink that I have ever tried. It tastes so good that I could drink it everyday. Thank you so much for the help about his recipe. Please do post more recipes if you have any.

I love adding baby spinach from the garden, it is so refreshing first thing in the morning and after weight training.  I use the almond milk as a base and skip the banana.

This was great! I added some frozen blueberries and it still came out really well. It definitely opened me up to adding more greens into my smoothies. Thanks a lot!

This Was SUPER Yummy!!!  ;)b

I did make adjustments, and I didn't measure anything. This is what I did - 2 Sm Bananas, 1/2 cup or so Frozen Blueberries, 1 bunch spinach (broke off at the leaves), 1 Tblsp Ground Flax Seed, and 1/2 Cup or so Light Vanilla Soy Milk!!!

Oishii !!!

What's great is that this is really hard to mess up. You can pretty much add any fruit combination and it works!  I used baby spinach, half an apple, a banana, some ground flax seeds, half tsp nutritional yeast, and it came out super awesome.  But it looks pretty scary... yea.

I made something really similar.. I used 2 small frozen bananas, spinach, blueberries, raspberries, and since i'm out of soymilk and never buy juice i tried using unsweetened applesauce.  it worked great!  when i was almost done with it I added a dash of cocoa powder for a little chocolate/fruit concoction - yum.

I tried this on a whim this morning, although I used almond milk in lieu of apple juice and frozen blackberries as the fruit. Very filling, indeed. I usually make smoothies with silken tofu and had to make adjustments for the light grocery week I am currently on, but I didn't even miss the soy!
