Green Smoothies

Green Smoothie with Cranberries

It’s even hot at breakfast this week, which reminds me that I’ve been enjoying green smoothies recently. If you’re looking for beginner-friendly recipes and prep tips, check out the thread Green Smoothies- and all things Vitamix/Superblended!

If you’re blending on a budget, you don’t need a high end Vitamix:

I don’t have a vitamix, so I make smoothies in my Oster blender and a mason jar. It turns out that the blade and cap fit exactly on a narrow mouth mason jar. Then cleanup is easy– I just rinse the blade and set it back on the blender, and drink right from the mason jar.

You might also be interested in some of these recipe suggestions:

– blueberry kale smoothies (frozen blueberries, banana, yogurt, kale, apple juice)
– pineapple agua fresca (pineapple + water!- yum!)
– watermelon gazpacho — super duper yum. We might actually start having these as smoothies, even in the morning. It was so, so good (and my husband is more of a savory than sweet lover): (cubed watermelon, peeled tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, jalapeno, basil, parsley, splash of red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper.) I’m toying with the idea of adding spinach next time.
