"Master of Disguise" Green Smoothie

Best Smoothie for Vegetable Haters!

My mom has been experimenting with different smoothie recipes lately. She purchased a Vitamix and is having fun with it! She has never been one for vegetables. She was traumatized in her childhood when her mom tried to get her to eat vegetables. Since then she won't eat salad, or much of any foods that are green. She describes vegetables as tasting like dirt. She does realize that there are some health risks associated with not eating a healthy diet. So having a Vitamix has helped her incorporate foods into her diet that she would normally NEVER eat. She is now "drinking" her vegetabels in the form of green smoothies. She is a master of making vegetables undetectable in her smoothies. Here's an example of one of her recipes. You can see the video on Youtube .


Master of Disguise Green Smoothie

1/2 cup V-8 fusion juice Acai Mixed Berry (add more juice to thin if necessary)
2 cups collard greens or kale
1 banana
1 cup Organic Antioxidant blend (Costco) Dark Tart cherries, blueberries, pomegranite, raspberries, strawberries mixed
4 or 5 whole frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen bluberries
2 scoops stevia to sweeten

Blend all ingredients on low using toggle.  Adjust speed as needed. Remember to rotate your green leafy vegetables.  That means using a different green leafy vegetable for every juice you make.
