If you create this smoothie with a Vitamix you will absolutely love the fluffy, creamy texture. Mmmm Deee-Licious!! Definitely one of my favourites. Very high in vitamins A and C, a great source of iron and calcium and lots of fibre! Not to mention the antioxidants from the blueberries. All in all a nutritious powerhouse!
Makes 1.5 litres (3 x 500ml servings)
- 3 cups water
- 2 cups blueberries
- 1 banana
- 1 big handful raw almonds (soaked overnight and rinsed well in the morning)
- 2 tbsp flaxseed
- 3-4 big handfuls spinach
Add all ingredients to the blender in the order listed. Blend on low speed and gradually increase speed. Blend on high until creamy and fluffy.
