I have different favorites all the time. I guess it depends on the ingredients I have on hand. My favorite lately is pretty straight up Green Smoothie:
Strawberries (probably about 2 cups)
Pineapple (probably about 1.5 cups)
Spinach (however much you can tolerate! I go for 50/50)
Parsley (just a bit)
Cinammon (again, just a bit)
Water to desired consistency (I like thick so I usually use 1/2 cup)
Sometimes I'll substitute a pear for the pineapple. Really you could use any sweet fruit. Also, I'll sometimes use fresh Orange juice instead of Water. One of these days I'll try it with carrot juice instead of water.

This is the one I've been doing lately. I'm using dandelion to help cleanse my liver:
4 pieces of kale
3 dandelion leaves
3 frozen bananas
dash of water

I change it up a lot too. Most of the time it's:
2 cups filtered water
handful of spinach
whatever fruit (fresh or frozen)
1 tbsp. spirulina
But lately instead of the water, I've been using almond/Brazil nut mylk. YUM-OH!!!

This is a great thread! SO many new flavor combos to try! I can't wait!:p
I have one basic Green Smoothie I love and one Savory Green Smoothie I Love
Basic Morning Smoothie
Banana/ Blueberries/Romaine/ A little water
Afternoon/Evening Savory Smoothie
2-3 Cups Spinach
2 Cups Tomatoes
1 Cup Pineapple
1 Cup Celery
A bit of Parsley
Tiny dash of lime or lemon juice
a couple of dates (optional)
(sometimes I'll add a bit of red pepper, or change the main green)
I just had one:
Lots of kale
1 small apple
couple cups of strawberries
While I was blending it, I tasted a little and made the unfortunate comment, "Yum, this tastes like ice cream." My family was all over it...I barely got any! (Not that I really mind.) :D
I don'r do well with high sugar-fruits, so I have created some green smoozies that I can enjoy without breaking out:
2 cups of frozen strawberries
1 small avocado
as much spinach as I desire
1/2 small tart apple
---blend till creamy and delish
1 small avo
2 cups of raspberries
1/2 pink grapefruit
I chowed down on your spinach, apple & OJ for lunch today.
It was delicious! I am trying to cut down on the bananas..
your savoury smoothie sounds awesome. i can't wait to try it for supper!
I need to track down a tasty pineapple..
Thanks for all of the suggestions, folks, keep 'em coming!
pear (i like bosc)
Funny someone mentioned that their smoothie tastes like ice cream! I get that sensation all the time! especially with my
(and sometimes spirilina)
