Green Smoothies

Since we got a Vitamix, our eating has dramatically changed. We always have seemingly huge around of greens, fruits and vegetables in our fridge…definitely not a bad thing! The Vitamix makes amazing smoothies out of pretty much anything! We rarely feel the need for sugary treats anymore! Omar has taken over coming up with interesting flavour combinations, while rotating the ingredients to ensure maximum nutritional benefit!

This week, he created an amazing smoothie! He used 1 bunch of baby spinach, 3 leaves of collard greens, 2 mineolas, 1 pear, 1/4 lime, 1 cup mango, 1 tsp local honey, 1 tsp coconut oil, 1 cup coconut water and 1 cup of water. The smoothie was such an amazing colour and the combination of coconut oil and honey, gave it a slightly sweet taste. We always use organic greens, fruits and vegetables to maximize the vitamins and minerals.
