1 cup pineapple
1 apple (or a couple carrots)
1/8 slice lemon with peel
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 large handful raw spinach (about 8 oz – yes, 1/2 lb!)
First blend the pineapple, orange, pear, apple, lemon and flaxseed to a nice fluid. Add the frozen blueberries and blend them in. Last, add the spinach and blend for 20-30 seconds until smooth. It looks horrible (purplish brown) but tastes delicious! (and you will be surprized how much it “compresses down” with blending – 1/2 lb compresses down to about 1 cup fluid).
I started off just adding spinach to the carrot citris cocktail we all love, but gradually started adding more fruits. The secret is to have lots of sweet and fluidy fruits to overwhelm the subtle flavor of spinach. You CANNOT taste the spinach – I guarantee it!
