This smoothie is so packed with vitamins and minerals – vitamin C (double your daily requirement), K, E, A, B2, B6, iron, folate, silica, potassium, magnesium, fiber, calcium, folic acid, protein, phosphorus, selenium, zinc, omega 3, manganese, copper, niacin, and pectin.
- 1 pear
- 1 fresh or frozen banana
- 1 kiwifruit – leave the fuzz on that bad boy. It’s rich in flavonoids (antioxidants), insoluble fiber, and folic acid
- ½ cup of filtered water
- 2 huge handfuls of spinach
- Finish off with honey to sweeten and feel free to add more goodness, like LSA, bran, oats, etc.
Place everything into a blender. Blend on high for 1 minute or until bright green, smooth and creamy. Serve immediately topped with your favorite berries.
Note: If you have a regular blender (not a high-speed Vitamix), it’s best to blend the liquid and fruit first. Then add the greens, then ice.
