Soooooo, today's recipe is called the Slammin' Sunrise "Green" Smoothie. This one is a goodie. I will add one fun nutritional fact to this post. So, normally, when we eat strawberries, we cut the tops off, right? Weeeeeeell, when you make your smoothies in the VitaMix, you don't need to take them off! The VitaMix will blend them right up. "Why would we want to do that?" I am sure you are asking. I'll give you three reasons: fiber, phytonutrients, and vitamin K (according to the VitaMix Lady). Again ... I do not work for VitaMix or have any connection to them at all ... I just love this freaking machine! Okay ... onto the recipe!
