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

almmilkflaxspinachblue-3

this one was definitely green… albeit an odd shade…

tasted great, though!

almmilkflaxspinachblue-1

– 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.  the dates really help sweeten without overpowering.

drink the rainbow! 😀

    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 😉
