Clean Green Smoothie


I hope everyone has been having a great week so far! Our little corner of the world is seeing way below freezing temps, along with a fresh dusting of snow! It's crazy to look outside my window right now and think that yesterday I took an hour-long walk with Charlotte and our dogs!

When the temps get low like this, it's even more important to be sure we're getting as many fruits and veggies as possible. Give me all the immune system support, please! So today I'm sharing our every day, clean green smoothie with you! It's full of leafy greens, fresh fruits and a few extra healthy surprises you wouldn't even know were in there!

If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably been seeing my Vitamix allll over my stories. Jordan and I have wanted a Vitamix for years. Years, people! Our old blender was in a pretty sad state, and after doing a lot of research (and testing out some of my friends' Vitamix machines), I decided it was time to take the plunge. My only regret is that we didn't get a Vitamix sooner. I am seriously in love, and we have used it every. single. day. We're making soups, sorbet, pestos - and of course smoothies!

What I love most about our Vitamix is that it makes such smooth drinks. I mentioned above that there's some secret ingredients in these smoothies, and those are flax seeds and chia seeds! Both are full of healthy omega-3 fats, fiber and protein, but I'll be honest. I'm not a big fan of seeds in my drinks. When we make these smoothies with the Vitamix, you wouldn't even know they were there, because they get completely ground up. Seriously amazing!




Makes about 3-4 servings

Ingredients:

1 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon flax seeds
2 cups spinach
1 cup kale
1 apple, cored and sliced
1 kiwi, peeled
1/2 cucumber, diced
1 cup frozen peaches or mango

Directions:

Add all of the ingredients to your Vitamix machine in the order listed above. Select Variable 1, start your machine, and increase to the highest speed. Blend for 50 seconds. If your machine has the frozen drinks setting, select this setting, start your machine and let it run through the cycle. Serve immediately!
