Green Smoothies

As of late I have been enjoying some “Green Smoothies”.  It is a great way to get fruits and vegetables in your day and feel satisfied as well.  I like to have my green smoothie mid-morning.  

Here is the recipe that I have been using:

1/4 cup shredded carrots

1 cup fresh, organic spinach (look out Popeye)

1 small orange (or 1/2 if  a large orange) peeled

1 small apple (cored and chopped – no need to peel

1/2 small cucumber (those Persian kind – but I found these at Costco and they almost look like pickles.  They are so small I put two in. ) Cut off the ends and cut into large chunks.  No need to peel.

1/2 banana

1 cup frozen mangos

a little water to ease in blending

Enjoy!!!!!!! If you make this smoothie I would love to hear how you like it.
