Spinberry Cherry Smoothie

Spinberry Cherry Smoothie
2-10oz glasses

1 cup packed baby spinach leaves
1 cup blueberries
1 black plum, skin on, pitted
1/2 cup pitted, fresh cherries
1 tbl chia seeds
3 ice cubes
1/2 cup water

Blend and enjoy!

Just a note- I recently received the greatest gift of any serious cook or juicers dreams...a vitamix! I went big and got the professional series and man this thing does not joke around. Because of the serious horsepower, I don't have to peel any of my fruit (except with the obvious exceptions of bananas, pineapple etc.) thus I retain all of the rich vitamins that are stored in the skins. I also do not have to add very much liquid. You may have to adjust the recipes to fit your blenders power and your preference for thick or thin juices.

 If you find smoothies with greens in them hard to get down, freeze all of the fruit before blending it. I find that the colder the smoothie, the better it tastes.
