Green Smoothie Ideas

#1A
half a blender full of Organic Baby Spinach
1 orange (peeled)
1/2 banana (ripen a bunch and freeze so to always have available)
8-10 chunks of frozen unsweetened mango (Trader Joe’s brand is great)
1 1/2 inches of a pineapple (clean and cored)
1/2 tsp fresh ginger (more or less)
Fill the blender with water to the halfway point

#2
6-8 dark Organic Kale leaves (center vein removed)
Handful of Organic Baby Spinach
1 peeled orange
1 apple or pear
Fresh mint

#3
6-8 dark Organic Kale leaves (center vein removed)
Handful of Organic Baby Spinach
2 cups of fresh or frozen unsweetened berries
1 apple
1 tsp fresh ginger (more or less)
10-12 fresh mint leaves

The possibilities are limitless. Use your imagination. A good rule of thumb would be to use a 60/40 guide. That is 60% greens and 40% fruit. You will probably find that as you drink more of these, you will want to decrease the sweetness (fruit).
