Mid-day today Julie and I were in need of a healthy pick-me-up that would rejuvenate our bodies! Hello Vita-mix! Time for a green smoothie, or should I say dark purple smoothie, to rescue our tired minds.
Berry Blast Green Smoothie
1 handful kale, cut and washed
1 large handful baby spinach, washed
3/4 cup of frozen blueberries
1/2 cup (about six large) frozen strawberries
1/2 cup (about eight) frozen cherries
1 cup almond milk
about 1/2 cup of ice cubes
Layer in a strong blender or Vita-mix as directed; blend until smooth. Enjoy!! Easy peazy!
This is a great way to get tons of nutrients with little to no fat involved!! Smoothies, when made correctly, can be nutrient powerhouses loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. They are a great addition to any health regimen!
