My Green Smoothie

My Green Smoothie
Below is my tried and true, very basic green smoothie recipe that always tastes good. It has only a few ingredients and makes just the right amount (32oz). The beauty of this recipe is that you can use it as a template to create your own perfect smoothie. Try adding different ingredients as well (carrots, avocado, celery, flax seed oil, wheat germ, flax seed, chia seed, etc...).  You can also try adding more greens and less fruit.  The more greens the better!

My Green Smoothie

Ingredients:
12 ounces cold water
3 cups greens (2 spincah, 1 kale, or whatever you like)
1/2 banana
1/8 lemon peel 
1 pear or apple, quartered
1 cup frozen mixed berries (or any other frozen fruit you like)

Directions:
In a high-powered blender first add the water.  Next add the greens, banana, lemon peel and pear or apple.  Mix these ingredients briefly.  Lastly add the frozen berries.  Blend on high until consistency is smooth.  Makes 32 ounces.
