Green Smoothie

By Rhonna Griffin

We’ve been sweating our way through the week and it’s time to rehydrate!

One early spring day this Vitamix smoothie appeared in my newsfeed and I instantly saved the recipe. It was bright, green and looked so refreshing! I’ve been making this smoothie and its become one of my favorites. I always skip the banana personally, because I like to make this more like a juice, with a healthy amount of water or ice along with the pineapple, grapes, and spinach! If I’m feeling feisty, which I usually am, I’ll grate some fresh ginger in as well!

 

You only need 4 ingredients to go green!

1/2 cup (120ml) water

1 cup (170 g) green grapes

3/4 cup (125 g) pineapple chunks, peeled, cubed, with core

1/4 (30 g) medium banana, frozen*

1 cup (30 g) fresh spinach

1/2 cup (70 g) ice cubes

 

Directions

1) Place all ingredients in high powered blender.

2) Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Move the ingredients around, using a tamper if available.

3) Blend for approximately 60 seconds or until desired consistency is achieved.

 

*Rhonna’s tip! This smoothie is wonderful without the banana, add more grapes or pineapple if you’d like!
