Jess' Rockin' Green Smoothie
Fresh Orange Juice
Fresh Apple juice
Im not really one for measuring, but I use my Jack Lalane juice to juice about 4 cups of orange and apple juice, sometimes Ill throw in a cucumber to make the juice go a longer way too! If you do not have a juicer or want to omit some of the sugar, just add water instead of the juice. I do not like pasteurized juices from the store, so I won't recommend using the boxed crap. The nutrients are pretty much all gone in those juices.... I would rather just spend the 10 mins and make the juice fresh!
I have a vitamix which is awesome! High speed blenders are where it is at if you drink smoothies everyday! Expensive, yes! But worth the investment in my opinion.
I fill the vitamix with about 4 cups of spinach packed! So it loosely fills up my blender, add the juice or water, add in about 2 cups of the frozen fruit and one or two bananas. Depends on how banana-y you want it! Makes about 3-4 servings...in our house its more like 3!And there you have it! A simple, delicious way to get your greens in! Try it out on your kids today and I can guarantee you that they will love it!
