Baby Likes Green

Me being creepy with the VMix
Jibs Says, Green is Good!
Vita mix Love
Jibs is having a hard time waiting for his juice.

Im not sure how I got along without my Vita-Mix. About five years ago, my parents bought us the Vita-Mix for our anniversary present. Since then, we have made probably hundreds of different smoothies and juices in it. Somehow the favourites have usually been green. If you dont drink green juice, it may seem gross to you but it really is good. If the green comes from either spinach or kale, it really doesn't add any flavour to the juice. It does, however, add calcium, Vitamins A and C, potassium and iron.

I generally like pear in any juice because it adds sweetness. I also get bananas that are very ripe, cut them into chunks and throw them in a ziplock freezer bag. It's easy to take out a couple handfuls of them for your juices.

Here is what we do:

Baby Loves Green Juice

1C spinach
1C kale
1 banana (frozen and cut in chunks)
1 pear
1C yogurt (plain or vanilla)
1C water, Orange juice or milk
1T honey or maple syrup

Blend all ingredients in a Vita mix or powerful blender.


  1. mmmmmmmmm your juice looks great! i love that that is all your kids know so they love it! jill made a mango smoothie while here it was delicious..

  2. I can't believe you have a vita mix! I never knew this, and now I am jealous! :)

  3. I found mine on ebay for a really good price. After my toaster oven, probably my most used appliance.

  4. I'm so glad the green drinks made it. I approve.
