How about a hangover-helper? After an evening’s celebration, wake to this beautiful and rejuvenating smoothie. Of course you can keep the party going by spiking it with vodka, too! This recipe makes enough for 2 large smoothies.
2 cups fresh, ripe pineapple, about 1/3 of a pineapple (saving some for garnish, if desired)
2 celery stalks, roughly chopped
2 1/2 cups spinach leaves, gently packed
handful ice cubes
honey, if desired for extra sweetness
freshly grated nutmeg to garnish, optional
Fill a blender (your Vitamix, of course!) with all of the ingredients except the spices and pop on the lid. Starting on low, begin blending, turning up the volume slowly, and take it all the way through to high. Blend for a minute, or until it’s the perfect consistency. Taste. Is it sweet enough? Add a dash of good local honey is you like. Serve at once with a fresh grating of nutmeg on top and enjoy a sweet morning!
