Sweet and Tart Green Smoothie

This sugar-free smoothie gets its sweetness from natural ingredients: raisins, apples, and bananas. This is one of the most refreshing smoothies I've made. Perfect for a hot, summer day!

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Makes: A little over 2 cups 

  • 1 frozen banana, chopped
  • 2 leaves of kale, chopped
  • 1/2 a granny smith apple, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 1 cup of water (less water for a thicker smoothie)
  • 2 tablespoons of raisins 
  1. Put all ingredients into a Vitamix blender. (Any other high-powered blender would work as well.)
  2. Start off blending at a low speed, using the "Tamper Tool" to push ingredients down towards the blade.
  3. Blend at a high speed until a uniform color appears. (45 seconds)
  4. Drink by yourself or share with a friend!
