Green smoothies

In addition to juicing, I have started to make "green smoothies" everyday as a meal replacement for either breakfast or lunch. I use 2 or 3 whole, fresh fruits (mostly bananas, oranges, pears, apples, blueberries), then I add 2 large handfuls of leafy greens (like spinach, romaine, swiss chard) and lastly, I add 1 cup of frozen fruit (such as strawberries, mangoes, pineapple, peaches) and blend it up. Oh, and I add a scoop of protein powder and a cup of water too! So delicious and nutritious and very filling!!!

That looks just like what we make..warning.. Mike actually removed the cover one time (while it was blending) and we had a instant green kitchen. XO Emily
