Day 1: Single Seving Green Smoothie Starter
« Reply #1 on: April 01, 2012, 08:14:06 AM »

Day one of the green smoothie challenge starts off with a simple single serving smoothie. Making exactly one pint of green smoothie can be challenging but we were successful here.



1/2 ripe banana
1 tsp chia seed
3 wedges fresh frozen peach
5 chunks fresh frozen pineapple
1 collard leaf (stem removed)
1 chard leaf (stem removed)
~1 cups water

When making this smoothie all ingredients were added then water was added to the 2 cup mark on our Vitamix. Sweet - delicious and nutritious!

Enjoy

Day 2: SWEET green smoothie dream
« Reply #2 on: April 02, 2012, 08:55:42 AM »

Everyone loved the day 1 smoothie so much we though we would repeat it with a variation.

1 T chia seeds
1/2 ripe fresh mango
1 1/2 super ripe banana (lots of brown spots on peel)
1/2 c frozen ripe pineapple (previously fresh)
1 collard leaf, stem removed
1 chard leaf, stem removed
2 cups water
serving size: tad more than 2 full pints

Sweet and delicious. This would be the PERFECT smoothie for someone new to the idea of a green drink.
Enjoy!
