Refreshing Tasty Green Smoothie

My friend, Ruby has a great green concoction which I slightly modified. You can try out different green combinations but this one has a pretty yummy taste.  I used a Vitamixer to blend everything in a few minutes or until smooth. Use organic where possible.

1.5 cup or more filtered water
1 Fuji organic apple (or sweet ones like Gala or Delicious. tart doesn’t work for me) – cut up into pieces and put on bottom (no seeds in mine)
1 fist of cilantro with stems
1 fist of parsley with stems
1 or 2 fist of spinach (or use the ends of Romaine or leafy greens)

Optional: 1/2 cucumber, 1/4 lime (squeeze the juice from the wedge),
1/2 scoop of Garden of Life Raw Proteins or your own (to taste)

Yield: Close to 3 cups. Drink half and put rest in a jar in fridge for later or for the road with ice cubes later.

Cheers!
