fun with smoothies

Today I made extra special smoothies. I made 6 servings (about 16 oz I think) to freeze. I used 12 oz of spinach divided into three batches of 2 smoothies. They had their usual supplements too. And for a treat I used raw cashews instead of my usual seeds (1/3-1/2 cup for batch). Here were the variations; that is, along with the spinach and raw cashews, here are the fruit additions to each one:

1. fresh pineapple, mango, pear, and orange juice. Extremely delicious and a pretty lime green.















2: fresh figs, fresh-squeezed pomegranate juice, fresh pear, and 2 bags of frozen blueberries. I added 1 Tbsp date sugar. I forgot to take a picture but as you can guess, it was blue.

3: fresh pomegranate juice and orange juice (totaling 1 cup), 2 bags of frozen sweet cherries. I added 1 Tbsp of date sugar and wished I hadn't. It was already plenty sweet!

Here it is when I'm all done. You can see my mangled vita-mix plunger from one time when I forgot to use the rubber top to stop the plunger from hitting the blades. I need to order a new one. You can also see the mess at the end of the job.
















These are in the freezer covered with foil, to eat over the next few days.
