Citrus Green Smoothie

Citrus Green Smoothie

Back in December, I gave in to my obsession with all things kitchen gadget/tool/appliance and bought a smoothie blender. And that, of course, caused a new obsession with all things smoothie! I can’t believe how this blender obliterates things like kale without leaving any sort of pulp or grit behind. It’s amazing. And delicious. And healthy. But mostly delicious.

With my previous smoothie method (aka my food processor), I could NEVER get any sort of greens to break down enough to disappear into the smoothie. So I never really liked them and didn't buy in to the green smoothie craze. But. Now. I. Do. Seriously, I think I made this one every day for at least two weeks straight.

Though it looks crazy green, this smoothie tastes mostly of citrus. And with kale, orange juice and pineapple, it delivers LOTS of vitamin C!

This is a “not-a-recipe” recipe, so it’s easy to make and easy to modify. You can try another frozen fruit in place of the pineapple, any combination of greens, and any juice instead of orange. Tasty. Healthy. Easy. Win. Win. Win.

Here’s how to make it. Put 1 cup of frozen pineapple in your blender. Add a cup of packed spinach and about a cup of kale. (Two cups of any greens would work.) Top it all with a cup of orange juice. Blend until smooth.

Citrus Green Smoothie - Orange juice sweetens this green smoothie that is good for you and actually tastes good. It comes together in less than 5 minutes.

I usually divide this into two servings. Half of it is usually plenty if I’m eating it with something else for breakfast. If the smoothie is my entire breakfast, I’ll drink the whole thing. The remaining half keeps well in a mason jar in the fridge for at least a day or two. It loses the thickness of the frozen pineapple, but you could easily reblend with some ice if you want. I usually just drink it like juice on day 2.
