This smoothie recipe will make about 4 12-oz. glasses.  If you have a smaller blender or desire a smaller quantity, cut the recipe in half. 

Wash and quarter the apple, removing the core from each quarter. Place in a high speed blender (Vita-Mix type). Peel the bananas and add to the blender. Wash and peel the carrot, cut into pieces, and add to the blender. Peel the orange, remove any seeds, and add to the blender. Add the washed or frozen cranberries, dates, flax seed, and the ice. Cover the blender and blend at high speed until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add a little cold water.

Serve in a glass with a straw, and enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
