I love this smoothie! It’s light and has so much good nutrients. I love to make it for myself and my husband. Kids totally freak out with the green color. They don’t know this, but I do add a little bit of green stuff in their smoothie, just enough so it does not turn green on them :). Crazy mom!
I add strawberry, banana and water into the smoothie tumbler. We recently bought the Ninja (blender/smoothie-maker/food-processor). I’m loving the fierce speed of this machine – 1500 watts, and the box says, “Total Crushing Technology.” 🙂
I use my fingers to push the greens below that -MAX FILL- mark on the tumbler. The blade-lid unit does not screw in otherwise.
I close the top with the blade-lid. This top will be the bottom on the Ninja machine.
And, here it goes…the “Total Crushing Technology” at work!
I take two deep breaths and voila! The smoothie is ready for my husband. He drinks it right out of the tumbler. I love this part too; no extra cups or drinking glass to be washed. I’m all set to make mine, now. 🙂 I love this drink!
(1 – serving; Prep time: less than 5-minutes; total time: less than 5-minutes)
1/2 of 6″ Banana
1/2 Cup Frozen Strawberries
2 Cups Olivia’s Organic mix (can use any other spring mix, spinach or kale)
1 Cup water (more if the smoothie is too thick)
Place all four ingredients in the tumbler. Close with blade-lid. Blend. Blend for 10 seconds and it’s done! Enjoy.

The salad gives me – Vitamin A 110%; Vitamin C 50%; Calcium 6%; Iron 20%. The Strawberries give me – Vitamin C 45%, Iron 2% and Calcium 2%. Banana and Strawberries are high in potassium.
(I eat lean meat/fish for my protein to balance my meal. Sometimes I add protein powder in this smoothie and get protein that way).
