Vitamix LOVE....today's green drink

BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER!!!

This year my husband caught me by surprise with THE perfect gift....The Vitamix 5200!!  I've been like a kid with a new toy.  I use the Vitamix 2-3 times a day, and am always looking for great new recipes and ideas. I started following the CLEAN diet last year as a cleanse, but have adopted this way of eating for most days.  My morning starts out with either a green juice or blended fruit smoothie.  The vitamix makes quick work of BOTH.  I love how I can make a fresh juice that uses the entire fruit or vegetable instead of discarding the pulp like a juicer does. I'll keep trying out new recipes and share them along the way. Today's green drink was inspired by fresh herbs overflowing in my garden.

     GREEN GOODNESS 1/2 cucumber 1 kiwi 1/2 lemon (rind peeled off) 2 tablespoons fresh mint 3/4 cup coconut water 1 handful fresh spinach        Add all items to VITAMIX and secure lid.  Select Variable 1.  Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.  Blend for 35-40 seconds or until mixture is smooth.

  I love the refreshing CLEAN taste to this drink.  I usually opt for a fruit smoothie but think I'll add this to the rotation.  Perfect for a HOT summer morning
