IntroductionA 140-calorie refreshing green smoothie A 140-calorie refreshing green smoothie
6 cups fresh young spinach leaves
2 cups tropical frozen fruit mix (I use the Wawona brand Festival Mix with papaya,mango, pineapple, and strawberry)
1 cup apple Juice
All ingredients can be purchased at Costco and the smoothie is made in a Vita-Mix.
Add 2 cups tropical frozen fruit mix to the Vita-Mix container. Then add 1 cup apple juice. Then add 6 cups spinach. You may need to pack the container to fit it all.
Secure complete 2-part lid by locking under tabs. Move black speed lever to variable.
Set speed dial to #1. Lift black lever to ON position and gradually increase speed to #8. Insert the tamper through the lid to press any ingredients into the blades, while the machine is processing. Gradually increase speed to #10. Then switch to HIGH. Allow machine to run for 30 to 60 seconds while using the tamper to press spinach into the blades until smooth consistency and a green color.
