I've only tried it once and I eyeballed the ingredients. I used one organic kiwi, one organic mandarin orange from our backyard (seeds and all), one yellow organic heirloom carrot, one green tomato (origin unknown), one old dehydrated looking conventional green bell pepper, some organic vanilla Trader Joe's yogurt, 3 or 4 handfuls of organic spinach, and about 6 or 7 ice cubes.
It tasted fine but next time I'll only put in one handful of spinach. I love spinach but I did put too much in even for my taste. All my ingredients were raw but I may try to blanch my spinach first as others have suggested to see if it makes for a smoother blend.
I used a vintage 10 speed Osterizer blender and only blended for about one minute. I'm happy to use our blender for healthy smoothie drinks! I will be making more smoothies as time goes by. I forgot to add my chia seeds for my first drink so they will get thrown in next time I use the blender. UPDATE: I've since tried the following ingredients: organic celery, organic baby greens, organic heirloom carrots, organic chia seeds, Trader Joe's organic vanilla soymilk. Wow, this second smoothie tastes so much better than the first one I made. It has just the right amount of sweetness and healthy "green" taste to it. I will make it again!
