Typically with recipes, the less ingredients the better to me. I am much more likely to try it. There is something about smoothies though, that we just keep throwing fruits and vegetables into the Vitamix. A lot of times I am trying to mask the taste of a vegetable. Here is a smoothie that JSarr fabricated, that, for us, doesn’t have many ingredients. This is the smoothie JSarr keeps coming back to. It’s probably his favorite since we have purchased our Vitamix.
- 3 oranges
- 2 cups frozen strawberries
- 1 large apple
- 1 banana
- 1 small tomato
- 1/4 cup plain yogurt, Greek is fine (try coconut yogurt or milk for vegan)
- 1 cup apple juice
- 1 T flaxseed oil, optional
- Blend all ingredients until thoroughly blended.
- Serve immediately.
The Verdict: It’s so smooth, and you can’t tell there is a tomato. My Ellie girl, who at times can be particular about her smoothies, is quoted as saying, ” I LOVE THIS SMOOTHIE SO MUCH I WANT TO EAT IT EVERYDAY!” ‘nough said.
