Maureen’s Green Drink

For my birthday this year, Chris t o t a l l y splurged and bought me the high-end Vita-Mix blender I have dreamed about for years.  I was shocked – shocked, I tell you! – when I opened the box.  Never in a million years did I think we would actually get one.  It just seemed so out of reach for us.

My sisters have asked me if the blender is worth the steep price, and I tell them “YES! ABSOLUTELY!”  Not only does it puree soups and make quick sorbets, but it has a self cleaning feature that I am officially obsessed with.  I use the blender several times a day, and I smile every time.

For the past two weeks, I have prepared a super healthy, all organic green drink that tastes totally delicious.  Loaded with veggies and fruit, it is basically a salad in a cup, but it is a real treat for me.  Even little Vivian loves it!

Maureen’s Green Drink

1 orange, peeled

1 pear, halved (leave the skin on)

1 carrot

1 celery

1-2 good handfuls of baby spinach

a small piece of fresh ginger, peeled (I use a lot because I love it)

1/2 cup water

2 cups ice

Toss everything into the blender and mix until smooth.  I’ve found that the longer I run the machine, the taster the drink!
