Do you love those 100% Naked juice smoothies?
If you haven't tried the Naked Green Machine - you're really missing out! That's (almost always) the only smoothie we splurge on when we're out of the house and thirsty. You gotta try it!
But if you really want a cheap, easy, freshly frozen version.. just make your own! Your homemade smoothies will never be the same twice. You can substitute so many of the ingredients - and get a new, amazing flavor in the process. For example, you can use any green you have on hand: green leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, kale or spinach for the green in your Green Machine. You can use any combination of frozen fruits. Here's what we put in this one:
About 1 cup frozen exotic fruit mix (contains cantaloupe, pineapple, peach)
About 1.5 cup frozen strawberries
About 1 cup water
1 freshly peeled orange
HUGE handful of spinach
8 dates (I was happy with 5 but Tyler wanted it a little sweeter.. and it's really great this way, too!)
Blue green algae (optional - try a little at a time)
*Just remember to use whole fruits, not fruit juices
