Swish Green and Lean Smoothie
by Sally Obermeder
“Honestly, having a Vitamix has been life changing. I can’t eat that quantity of vegetables in one sitting without it. Having this smoothie every day has killed my sugar cravings, made my skin feel better and brighter, it’s amazingly quick, and my little girl loves it too!” - Sally Obermeder.
1 cup Cold Water
1 Orange (peeled)
1 cup Baby Spinach Leaves
1 Avocado (remove skin and seed)
½ cup Broccoli
2 Pears, quartered (skin on)
Handful of Mint Leaves
1 scoop of Cocnut Oil, Chia seeds, Flaxseeds and/or Almonds
- Put the ingredients into the Vitamix Wet Blade Container in the order listed.
- Secure lid and select Variable Speed 1.
- Turn on the machine and quickly increase speed to Variable Speed 10, then to High.
- Using the tamper if necessary, blend for one minute or until smooth.
“This smoothie is a really great way to get veggies into children and adults alike. No one will notice the broccoli is there, apart from your liver, which will be celebrating its detox. Pear is high in fibre so great for keeping the digestive tract running well, and the orange will boost your immunity, circulation and help your skin glow.” - Janella Purcell.
