Big Green Drink…VITAMIX

HEALTHY HEALTHY HEALTHY !!!
BIG GREEN DRINK
i prefer the VITAMIX method…
WHAT YOU PUT IN IS WHAT YOU GET OUT
maybe someday i might buy a real juicer for something different, but for now i enjoy the vitamix.  it retains all, i mean ALL the nutrients and fiber everyBODY is looking for.
PS…the biggest selling point for me was the clean-up.  no filters, no waste AND you use less and store less produce.  real juicers take up a lot of space on the counter AND you need 3x’s the produce.  
PSS…i was told by another fellow juicer that fresh juice (from a juicer) should be consumed right away.  the vitamix green smoothie can sit a day without harm.  so…i make 2 days worth and save on trouble and time.  
INGREDIENTS

KALE, LIME, GINGER, CELERY, CUCUMBER, MINT, CARROT, SNAP PEAS, PARSLY
not shown…
PEA SPROUTS, GREEN APPLE, ARTICHOKE POWDER and a SHOT OF WHEATGRASS
add some water and ice.
i chop it into large chunks, add water and squeeze the lime.
i add a squeeze of “MIO” Peach Mango non calorie drink for a little sweet/tart.
DON’T FORGET TO ADD ICE.

make sure you start your blender on LOW and turn up the speed. 
TASTE TEST !

feel the side of the container while it is blending.  make sure it stays cool.  the Vitamix is very powerful and can raise heat.  you don’t want to heat the mixture.  add more ice if necessary.  blend until smooth.
ENJOY !!!

shot this a while ago for ST. PATTY’s DAY
