Ingredients:

  • 1 c. water
  • 1 c. frozen, seedless grapes
  • 1 banana, cut into chunks and frozen
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 T. flaxseed
  • 3 T. vanilla protein powder
  • crushed ice, as desired

Directions:

Add ingredients to blender container in the order recommended for the type of blender you are using (see intro at the beginning of this section).

For high-powered blenders, make sure the machine is on the lowest speed setting before you begin. Then, slowly increase the speed to the highest setting. (If your machine has a pre-programmed smoothie option, use that instead).

For regular blenders, use different speeds and the pulse button to thoroughly combine the ingredients. Blend for 1 - 2 minutes or until the ingredients are completely smooth.
