Good Morning Smoothie

Most mornings, I opt for a smoothie for breakfast.  There is just something about starting my morning with a big glass of high nutrient dense foods.  Perhaps it’s because a smoothie is an easy thing to down right after my morning run when I am often pressed for time.  There are no exact measurements and most anything will work in a smoothie.  It’s just a matter of personal preference and fruit availability.


  • 1 apple  (red delicious is best due to it’s high antioxidant value)
  • 1 peeled orange
  • 2 T ground flax seed
  • ½ C frozen grapes
  • ½ C frozen pineapple
  • ½ C frozen berries
  • Frozen spinach
  • Apple or grape juice – enough to allow processing


  1. Blend well in Vita-Mix or blender until creamy.  This makes two large glasses.
