One carrot, one apple, a handful of frozen mixed berries, 4 frozen strawberries and two handfuls of kale. I use a little orange juice to loosen as needed and throw in a few ice cubes at the end. You may want to use spinach or chard instead of kale if you have "texture issues". Kale can make your smoothie a little chewy. Well, it's not that bad but the kids definitely don't like it as much as the other greens that seem to blend up smoother.
My blender is practically smoking by the time I get through one of these suckers. When Nelsy makes us a smoothie in the morning before work, the kids have the pleasure of waking up to what sounds like a crazy jet skier on a very choppy lake. I have your basic Cuisinart blender and it is holding up quite well for now but I do have plans to buy a Vitamix when this one bites the dust. Of course we did just book a trip to Disney, so the Vitamix is going to wait a while.
