it’s been a while since i wrote a vitamix post!!  green smoothies are always fun, and this is fitting for the holiday. this week i decided to do a short cleanse. partially in honour of the moon, partially in honour of the upcoming solstice, and partially because i have been eating donuts almost every day for breakfast for about 2 months… not even kidding. *ahem* anyway, i was super excited to bust out my vitamix again!

st. patrick’s day “green” vitamix smoothie – approximate ingredients :

– frozen pineapple chunks {1/4 cup}

– 2 frozen strawberries

– 1 pitted date

– dried mango {small handful}

– organic spinach {heaping handful}

– coconut milk {1/2 cup}

– orange juice {1/2 cup}

blend on high until smooth…

i prefer to use spinach in my “green” smoothies… the flavour blends in so well and the colour is outstanding!  perfect for celebrating the luck of the irish!

the date adds a hint of sweetness.  it’s one delicious smoothie – for any holiday, or day of the week! 😀

drink the rainbow!  {maybe you’ll find a pot of gold at the end! 😉}
