Franne DemetricianonDecember 20, 2012at9:50 pmMy favorite smoothie is one I concocted from several recipes. It’s a green smoothie that I drink for breakfast. Spinach, apple, green grapes, kiwi, banana, kefir, almond milk, vanilla protein powder and some ground flaxseeds…and a little ice. It’s a complete breakfast full of protein, good veggies and fruit. It keeps me going all morning and it tastes yummy.

Jason ThompsononDecember 20, 2012at9:56 pmDon’t know what my favorite smoothie is because I don’t have a Vitamix yet! Want one so badly. My blender now only makes berry smoothies. Poorly. But I’m excited to continue my healthful journey into 2013 and hope a Vitamix will be part of that journey!
