My Perfect Green Smoothie!

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.” ūüôā ¬†

I add the GREENS!

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. ūüôā ¬†I love this drink! ¬†image
