Vita-Mix!

8 Jan

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

Serves 2

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

1/2 scoop amazing meal powder, pomegranate mango infusion

about 1/2 cup of ice cubes

Directions:

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!
