Fruity Salad Smoothie

Fruity Salad Smoothie
Makes 50-60 oz. or 6-7 cups

- 1 cup pineapple 
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1/2 a ripe banana
- a whole (peeled orange)
- 2 large carrots (quartered)
- 2 stalks celery (quartered)
- 1 apple (quartered with seeds removed)
- 1-2 cups of spinach, chard or kale
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 Tb ground flaxseed (or chia seeds)
- water (or you can use part apple cider/apple juice and part water)

1. Blend all ingredients in high powered blender (Vitamix's are the best!!!), using enough liquid to help your blender along and reach your desired consistency. I usually add a cup at first and add a half a cup as needed.

1. You can use fresh or frozen fruit, whatever you have available
2. And if you have fresh fruit, I strongly urge you to wash it first! You can scrub it with water, or you can also use Fit Wash, which we love!
3. And seriously, don't hesitate to substitute! If you don't have and orange, but you have some peaches or half a lemon, go for it. Smoothie recipes usually don't need to be exact.

Note, the color of the finished smoothie would be a bit darker, but I ran out of spinach today :(
