1/4 – 1/2 fresh pineapple (approximately 2 cups)
1/2 cup fresh or frozen mango
1/2 small papaya, peeled (about 1 cup)
1 orange peeled, seeds removed
3-5 leaves of kale
1 ripe banana (frozen for creamier texture)
1 teaspoon chlorella powder (optional)
1 teaspoon spirulina powder (optional)
1/4 – 1/2 – inch fresh ginger root
2-3 sprigs fresh mint leaves
2-3 cups of water
1/2 –1 tablespoon ground flax or chia seeds
1 – 2 teaspoons super foods of your choice
Place all ingredients in high-powered blender and blend.
If using a standard home blender, start out by placing the greens in the blender with water first, then blend on high until liquefied.
Add the remaining ingredients, and water as needed. Blend until smooth and creamy.
You may substitute fresh or frozen berries (strawberries or raspberries for pineapple) to make a different variation.
Add super foods like maca, mesquite, goji berries, cacao, ground flax meal, hemp seeds, etc. as desired. Begin by adding any of these in small amounts, increasing gradually as your taste adjusts.
Vary greens, using different types of kale, spinach, wild greens like lambs quarters, napa cabbage, romaine lettuce, cilantro, parsley, celery, etc. Adding extra greens to your smoothie will add minerals and help balance the sweetness of the fruit.
