I included the links to the nutritional information on most of the fruits and veggies, too, just because it's interesting. Most of those things automagically display the nutritional data for a full cup of these fruits and veggies, so be sure to adjust the counter for that. This particular recipe makes about 6 servings, too, so be sure to share with your family!
The picture, by the way, just doesn't do this justice. It turns out a pretty color, taken mostly from the blueberries. So, it's a dark purple, rather than what you see in the photo. Some days, the camera wins. That's all I can say. lol.
30 bing cherries, pitted
30 red grapes
1 orange, peeled
juice of 1 lime
6c organic spinach
9 ice cubes
Clean all fruits and veggies with Fruit & Vegetable Wash to get all the pesticides off them first. Add all fruits to your Vitamix or Ninja Blender (you will only be able to add about 1/2 the ingredients at a time in the Ninja, though). Blend until smooth. Add spinach and blend in with fruits. Add ice cubes and blend once more. Serve with a straw and enjoy an early summer treat!
Notes: I think that, if you had those cute little popsicle thingies I mentioned in my last post, you could also make some terrific popsicles with this recipe. I'll try it out and let you know, k?
