Hoff's Bulk Green Smoothie

Hoff's Bulk Green Smoothie
Yields: About 64 oz
dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free
RawTill4 Compliant

  • 4 cups Spinach
  • 2 cups Mixed Frozen Berries (strawberries, raspberries, black berries, etc.)
  • 1 cup Frozen Blueberries
  • 2 packets Stevia
  • 2 tbsp Whole Flax Seed
  • 1 tbsp Spirulina
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • Water

  1. Place Spinach in Blender
  2. Top with Berries
  3. Add Flax Seed, Spirulina, Cinnamon & Sea Salt
  4. Add enough water to cover the top of the fruit
  5. Blend for about 1-2 minutes

My2Cents: A Vitamix is the only blender that I have found that can grind through those little berry seeds.  Try experimenting with different fruit and veggie combinations, the 5 Magic Veggies for Smoothies is a great place to start!  This recipe makes enough to last two people, three days, which is about as long as you want to keep your smoothie around before the nutritional value is depleted.  Yes, you could make it fresh everyday, but that's a pain.  Instead, I store my smoothies in re-purposed Snapple bottles.  Then each morning when dashing off to work, I can just grab my smoothie and go!  If Stevia is not your thing, try 2 pitted Dates or straight up Sugar.
