{a week of vitamix smoothies – day four : blueberries, spinach, dates, orange juice}

29 Aug


this one was definitely green… albeit an odd shade…

tasted great, though!


– frozen blueberries

– frozen raspberries

– fresh spinach

– 2 pitted dates {could substitute honey or agave}

– lots of orange juice

– few splashes almond milk


i usually use more “milk” than juice, but i wanted to switch it up this time….


i bought a TON of blueberries on a one-day sale and froze them. when they are in season, they still taste great, but the freezing process zaps some of the sweetness. Β the dates really help sweeten without overpowering.

drink the rainbow! πŸ˜€

    You’re right, that IS an odd green. My smoothie today was Spinach, cucumber, zucchini, tangerine, peach, and flaxseed. SO good.

    yeah… i’m starting to think the flax seeds make the difference. i don’t really measure, i just toss some in… sometimes it’s more than others πŸ˜‰
