We each have two 12-oz. glasses of a green smoothie for our breakfast, so we usually completely fill the large container of our Vita-Mix high speed blender. We use about 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of greens in the recipe. If you wish to make a smaller amount, cut the recipe in half.

Wash the apple, cut lengthwise into quarters, remove the stem and core, and place the apple pieces in the bottom of the blender container.

Wash and peel the beet, cut into chunks, and add to the blender container.

Wash and peel the carrots and onion, cut into chunks, add to the blender container, and add the tomato paste, flaxseed, ginger and stevia.

Wash and clean the fresh greens, and add to the blender container until it is 3/4 full with the fresh, frozen or cooked greens, add the ice and a cup of water, cover, and run the blender at high speed until the ingredients are smooth, using the tamper as required.

Add additional greens and water to fill the container and achieve the desired consistency of the green smoothie.

Pour into glasses and serve with a straw. Enjoy!
