Not So Green Smoothie


Do you have a difficult time keeping your day on track? I do. When I start my day with a good breakfast, everything else seems to go more smoothly. Usually I go for a ‘green’ smoothie, though with all the blueberries, it tends to look more purple/black. If nothing else, I’ve gotten a decent amount of produce in my body. This is my current recipe:


3/4 C coconut water
1/4 of an avocado
1 small piece of ginger, increase depending on your preferred heat level
1 dried date
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp camu camu powder
1 tsp collagen
In season fruit, similar volume to a medium orange
2 Handfuls of spinach
1/2 C frozen blueberries


Into the Vitamix it all goes, starting on variable 1, turning to 10 at an even pace. Because of the spinach, you may need to use the tamper. Once you have a happy vortex, switch to high speed and blend for 60 seconds. And done. Drink up.


Makes about 16 oz


Note: You know your body far better than I do. Make any appropriate adjustments for your taste/sensitivities.
