Healthy Breakfast Smoothie

Simply delicious.  Orange, Lettuce, Blueberries, Cranberries, and a little water.
Turn the Vitamix up to high, hold on tight…
And enjoy.  Drink to your health!

Peach and Lettuce Smoothie

How can someone love a Vita-Mix so much? The past 8 months have been so fantastic thanks to this workhorse of a kitchen machine. Every morning I drink a green smoothie that is made of oranges, lettuce or another leafy green like kale or spinach, and frozen blueberries or raspberries. It is simple and a very nice way to start the day.
Peaches are in season here in Colorado, so I am pleased to start the day with local, seasonal produce that hasn’t been shipped in from Florida or California. This is my low carbon footprint breakfast drink that I’ll enjoy until I bid farewell to my favorite fuzzy fruits…

Into the Vita-Mix goes 2 or 3 peaches (pitted, of course) and as much lettuce as you can stuff in there. I have an heirloom mix I picked up at the Farmers’ Market. Add a little water and some ice cubes if you’d like it cold. Turn it up to speed 10, then high, then enjoy.

Wilted Green Lunch Smoothie

I am on a steady regimen of Vita-Mix smoothies. Lettuce, orange, and blueberries for breakfast, followed by some variation of the combo pictured here for lunch.
This one turned out great… for a bunch of veggies blended into a drinkable beverage, or as I prefer to call it, a healthy lunch smoothie.

There are no exact measurements here. Add more of what you like, but not necessarily less of what you don’t like! Don’t skimp on the greens!
  • a few broccoli florets
  • 2 carrots
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1 golden delicious apple
  • 10-15 beet greens, wilted
  • a handful of wheatgrass
  • a handful of sunflower sprouts
  • 3 frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 red beet
  • 1-2 cups water
Throw it in the Vita-Mix, turn it up to 10, then high, then enjoy. It’s good for you!

Spicy Lunch Smoothie

Here is another healthy lunch smoothie. Super healthy, and not so bad going down.

  • 1 apple
  • 2 carrots
  • lettuce (large handful)
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks (I used frozen)
  • 1/3 red beet
  • 1 green onion
  • splash of Boulder Hot Sauce, Smokey Serrano flavor
  • 2 cups water
Throw it all in the Vita-Mix and let it do its job.
