Green {Brown} Smoothie

Have you guys heard about the new "brown" smoothie fad? Ya out with the green, and in with the brown! 

Okay I'm just kidding. This was our first attempt at making a "green" smoothie, and we thought it was hilarious that it turned out being more brown than any other color. But we know it's probably because of some of the strawberries we put in made it brown. It's of course equally healthy as green ones.

We were very pleased with it being our first time. The consistency was perfect! We did add a lot of fruit, but we gotta wean ourselves off from our red smoothies to green. Baby steps right? Tonight we're going to try cucumber and mango with some of the other ones below. Enjoy!

5 baby carrots
2 white cabbage leaves
3 strawberries
1 large frozen banana
1/3 cup crushed canned pineapple
1 cup apple juice
6 ice cubes
handful of kale leaves (they were precut and cleaned)


  1. you put the baby carrotts in the blender? i'm not sure my blender could handle them...but they would sure be good for me!

  2. Hey Est!

    Ya I stick those bad boys in the blender. I don't have a "vita-mix" so I am careful and sometimes defrost the bananas a bit or make things less hard, but with these carrots, it's been awesome! I would maybe cut them in half though in case you're worried and don't want to dull your blender. Also, adding a lot of juice/water helps your blender handle the tough stuff.
