My Favorite Green Smoothie
I love the way these delicious green smoothies make me feel. I love that I am getting tons of healthy greens; spinach, kale, parsley, cilantro or whatever greens you like in one big jar a day, to give my body what it really wants.

Total Time15 mins
- leaves Spinach or Kale
- Pinch of Fresh Parsley
- Pinch of Cilantro
- Fresh Ginger optional
- 1 Celery Stalk optional
- 1 tbsp Orange Juice Concentrate
- 1 cup Frozen Pineapple
- Handful of Frozen Strawberries
- 1 Banana
- 1 Apple Cored optional
Add water to blender, fill the blender approximately 1/4 full.
Next fill the blender to the brim with fresh spinach leaves or kale leaves.
Add a pinch of fresh parsley and cilantro.
If you desire, add a little bit of fresh ginger and a celery stalk or any other greens you like.
Turn the blender on low and gradually increase the speed.
Then put it on full power for about 30 to 45 seconds so the greens are really fine.
Turn the blender off.
You can add in more greens if you like. If you like an extra thick smoothie, grab another handful of spinach leaves and add it in.
After your greens are all mixed up, add in about 1 tbsp of orange juice concentrate.
Then add 1 cup of frozen pineapple.
A handful of frozen strawberries and banana.
Every once in awhile I also throw in an apple (cored).
Then blend until thick and smooth.
