Green Smoothie

My original Green Smoothie Inspiration is Green smoothie girl watch her do it!

My girls love these! It's a great way to up your kids intake of veggi's with out them catching on to you.
This is not my Picture, click it and you can look at a raw foods site!

Green Smoothies
The following works best in a large high powered blender like a Vitamix but reduce the amounts of the ingredients and it will work in almost any blender.

1/2- seedless orange, flesh and sections (no, pith) 
1 peeled banana
1-2 large Kale leaves (ribs sliced away)
Two or more large handfuls of washed spinach
1 cup frozen mixed berries (we like the mix from Costco)
Water to thin
1 T unrefined sugar or Splenda (if you like it sweeter add sugar/honey to taste)

Directions: Blend all ingredients in the blender. Taste. The color isn’t beautiful but the taste is great!

Note: You can replace the orange and the sugar with a small amount of orange juice concentrate.
** Try other fruits; Some ideas- Mango, Pineapple, Apples, Frozen melon, grapefruit etc.
**we freeze all leftovers and eat them as Popsicles.

FYI: The orange/citrus flavor kind of cancels out the flavors in the greens so whatever the combo you choose to try include some form of citrus.
