A Green Smoothie

Smoothies are one of our favorite things to make with a blender, especially when your body needs a little nourishment. For one, they are so easy to blend up (just throw everything in and press start), particularly when you have a nice blender that can deliver the right end result. We recently tried our hand at making this nutrient-packed green smoothie and truth be known it left us feeling lean and refreshed.

Words of Wisdom: Investing in a nice blender is the only way to ensure you get the best results time after time. Our favorite for the price is the Waring BB150, which for only $51.99 makes a fabulous smoothie! If you have a higher budget, we highly recommend buying a Vitamix – revered in the industry for their great construction and long life span (not to mention they look right at home on a countertop):

Here’s the recipe for the Green Smoothie we made: Ingredients 1/2 pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped 1/2 english cucumber, peeled and chopped 1/2 ripe pear, peeled, cored and chopped juice from 1 lime 1 cup baby spinach leaves 10 mint leaves, chopped 1 tsp agave nectar crushed ice The Recipe (serves 2) Put all ingredients in a blender (we recommend this model or this one) and puree until it reaches a nice, smooth consistency. Garnish with a spear of cucumber and enjoy! Check out our variety of Vitamix Blenders or browse  our full selection of Bar Blenders and Food Blenders on MissionRS.com!
