I don’t own a Vitamix. I’ve never done a cleanse or a detox. But I do love a good, healthy smoothie every now and then. This is a great way to start your morning or makes a great snack. My kids love this too (although I could put just about anything into a blender and they’d be hard-pressed to not like it!) I try not to have juice around the house (we have diabetes in the family and juice is filled with sugar) but this smoothie is plenty sweet without it. This has become my “go to” green smoothie because it actually tastes good and it’s good for you. It’s from Brit Morin, who is a young Martha Stewart type. Her website Brit + Co is fun to check out for DIY and craft ideas. Enjoy!
Recipe from Brit + Co.
– 2 cups spinach
– 1/2 cup almond milk (original recipe uses sweetened, but I buy unsweetened)
– 1/2 cup frozen mango
– 1/2 of a small banana (2 ounces if you have a scale)
Place your spinach in the blender. Add the almond milk and frappe until smooth. This step is key for a smooth texture. Add the frozen mango chunks and banana. Blend again until smooth. Your smoothie will be thick, but not so thick that you can’t drink it from the glass without the help of a spoon.
