Vitamix Green Smoothies

Kale and Pear Smoothie
From the Vitamix green Smoothie site



Drink to better bones, help for your heart and an improved immune system—you
get it all in this delicious Vitamix green smoothie!

Kale may not be the first thing
you think of when it comes to making a great smoothie—but it is definitely one
of the best! Dark leafy green kale is packed with calcium in a form that the body
finds easier to digest than milk—and that’s a real bonus for your bones. Pair these
nutritious but bitter leaves with pear, green grapes, and orange and a banana, and
you get a surprisingly sweet smoothie that is absolutely loaded with nutrition.
Green grapes may help improve circulation and prevent blood clots—and the seeds
contain protective flavinol compounds that fight free radicals and repair connective
tissues. Oranges protect against colds, flu, heart disease and strokes with a big
vitamin C immune boost. Bananas are a smoothie staple, but they are packed with
cholesterol calming potassium.
