Since many people criticize juicing fruits and vegetables (because of the removal of fiber), we decided to add a list of our smoothie recipes for your enjoyment. These are recipes we’ve created ourselves or received from friends. For all of our smoothie recipes, we use (and LOVE) our VitaMix and we blend our smoothies until creamy. We will be adding to our list very often. And as always…let us know how you enjoy them!

Notes

I'll admit I love drinking green smoothies. However, even though this smoothie is loaded with a TON of good stuff, the color of it can be distracting. If you prefer a "green" smoothie, you could replace the blueberries with a 1/4 tsp of Amla powder or mangoes for the extra antioxidants.
