,And that is saying a lot because this is what I got for my birthday last year.........
This year, my dear friends Inna, Katie and Anna got me a gift that I just LOVE.
I know, I know..... I might be the only person in the world who would be so excited about getting a blender for her birthday! But the Vita-Mix blender is not only the MAC DADDY of all blenders, it is also the easiest way to meet your goals of 2-3 servings of fruit and 5-6 servings of veggies a day. Regular juicers throw away all of the pulp from the whole foods. That's NOT good because the pulp is actually more nutritious than the juice itself.
Whole food juicing is a process unique to the Vita-Mix.
You literally smash through all the pulp and pulverize it so everything turns into juice (even seeds). You waste nothing. You get all the flavor, nutrition and fiber in a naturally sweet and creamy-smooth juice.
Here are the ingredients for her favorite GREEN SMOOTHIE:
- handful of green grapes
- 1 pear
- 1 cup kale
- 1 carrot
- 1 cup frozen mango
- ice and 1/2 cup - 1 cup water
I have been LOVING this GREEN DRINK every morning:
- handful of fresh parsley
- 1/2 a cucumber
- 2 celery stalks
- 2 carrots
- 1 apple
- 1 cup kale
- fresh lemon juice
- ice and 1 cup water
If you don't have a Vita-mix and you want to enjoy these wonderful and healthy juice drinks.......Go see Kate at The Honeybee Organic Juice Bar. She is located inside the Ute City Building and she makes amazingly healthy juices and smoothies!
