Maximize nutrients by changing up dark leafy greens every so often.
Never throw out very ripe bananas. They are smoothie-perfect when spotted! Just peel, throw in a plastic baggie, and freeze.
For best results and to get your smoothie smooth, try using a high-powered blender like the Waring Xtreme, VitaMix, Blendtec, or NutriBullet.
If using a standard blender, add leafy greens, apples and water to blender first. Blend until liquefied. Then add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
Apples and leafy greens are included on the Environmental Working Group's DIRTY DOZEN. Therefore, we always use the organic option in our Groothie, and encourage you to do the same.
