apple spinach orange smoothie


This is another smoothie combination that I love and one that I actually make in the morning and drink for lunch. It holds well in the refrigerator. 



Before drinking it, give it a good shake as it tends to separate.

what you need:


  • about a cup baby spinach leaves (about 3/4 oz - 20 grams)
  • half apple cubed (if the apple is small put the whole apple)
  • 3/4 cup orange juice

Optional
- your choice of sweetner
- 1/2 cup ice cubes (about 3 or 4)

what to do:
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Keep a spoon at hand because this smoothie tends to separate, so stir in between sips.

Note:
This smoothie works better if you have a Magic Bullet or Vitamix. However I have made it in a regular blender and it works, it's just grainier. The Vitamix is perhaps the brand that really liquefies everything. No wonder they are so pricey. The results you get when using other brands of blender will vary. My suggestion is that you try with whichever you have. Then you can decide if you like the consistency of your smoothie.
