My Favorite Green Smoothie & Links!

I am obsessed with my Blendtec. I use it daily to make a smoothie for breakfast and have also used it to make soups, salad dressings and sauces. I definitely hope to discover even more blender recipes. The Blendtec is very similar to the Vitamix. I figured I would share my favorite smoothie recipe with all of you.

4 Ounces Cocounut Water
4 Ounces Orange Juice
1 Banana
2 handfuls of greens (spinach, kale etc)
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
3/4 cup of frozen mango
Enough Ice to Keep it Cold

Load all the ingredients in the blender in the order they are listed

I typically blend all the ingredients together and then blend in the ice afterwards. This smoothie is refreshing and keeps me full until my midmorning snack. It definitely makes a pretty giant smoothie but since I am having it as a meal, I am okay with it. With summer here, a nice cold and refreshing smoothie is perfect after a run or morning workout!

All blended together, time to add some ice to keep it nice and chilly!
