Preparation

This recipe is best prepared in a high-powered blender such as a Vita-Mix.   If a smaller blender is used, we suggest that the recipe be cut in half for each batch. 

It is also best to refrigerate the fruit several hours before preparing the fruit smoothie.  To make the smoothie even colder, the banana could be peeled, cut into pieces and frozen ahead of time.

Several hours before preparing the fruit smoothie, wash and freeze the cranberries.  (We freeze several 8-oz, plastic containers of cranberries and store them in our freezer for quick and easy access.)

Thoroughly wash the apples.   Cut into quarters.  Remove and discard the core and stem.  Place apple sections into the blender.  Thoroughly wash the kiwis and remove and discard the hard ends.  Cut each kiwi into halves and add to the blender container.  Peel the navel oranges and add the sections to the blender.  Add the peeled bananas.  Add the dates and flax seed.  Add the frozen cranberries.

Add the ice.  Cover the blender and run it at "high" until the fruit and ice are thoroughly blended into the smoothie (about 1-minute). 

Serve in a tall glass with a straw, and enjoy.  A fruit smoothie also makes a great breakfast.

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!
