My husband bought me a Vitamix a couple of years ago and I LOVE it! It makes whipping up smoothies quick and easy! When I make these, I just quarter the apples and throw in the cores, seeds and all....of course you can cut out the core if you would rather.
1 apple, quartered
1/2 can sliced pineapples, with 1/2 of the juice....5 or 6 rings
1-2 large handfuls of spinach
extra juice (orange, apple or pineapple)
Directions: Add ingredients to blender. I add in order listed above. Start blending...you can add more ice to your desired texture, or add extra juice if you need to...to get it to blend more easily.
If I have extra smoothie, I like to freeze it ice cube trays and save them for another day. Pop them out into a glass and within 15-30 minutes they should be nice an slushy.
