Simple ABC Smoothie with Tart Blenders
Servings: 28-32 ounces
This smoothie is the perfect “starter” for those new to blending… just think ABC (apple, banana, carrot & citrus)… it’s as easy as that! Here, Stemilt Fresh Blenders Tart Apples are blended with ripe banana, a few petite carrots and fresh orange for a vibrant, healthy start to the day. And… if you want to go “green,” simply drop in a good handful of fresh, baby spinach for a little added boost of Vitamin A and Iron.
2 Stemilt Fresh Blenders Tart Apples, cored and quartered
1 cup ice ¼ cup water
3 petite carrots (approx. 6” length), thoroughly scrubbed or
peeled, ends trimmed, roughly chopped
½ ripe banana, peeled
1 orange, peeled and halved
1 cup fresh baby spinach, firmly packed (optional, see note)
Add apple, then ice, water, carrot, banana, and orange to pitcher of high-speed electric blender (one suitable for crushing ice and handling firm textures). Blend on high (or use “smoothie” option, if applicable) for approximately 1 minute. (If necessary, stop machine intermittently to scrape down sides or press ingredients down to remove any air pockets that might impede blending.) Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
If you want to go “green,” add baby spinach with other ingredients and blend, as directed. OR, transfer half of ABC smoothie to a pitcher; then add spinach to remaining smoothie mix in blender; blend as directed. To serve, fill glasses halfway with green smoothie, then add ABC smoothie to top for a bit of a layered look.
