Happy New Year! You may or may not be as hung over as we are right about now. There are a couple of things that really help us out when we feel horrible after a night of celebration. One of them is our Bloody Mary recipe, and the other are Green Smoothies. We made this Green Smoothie with one of our most favorite kitchen appliances ever: A Vitamix. If you are in the market for a blender, we highly recommend it. It pulverizes everything like nothing else. This is one of my favorite recipes for a Green Smoothie because of the pineapple. I can’t take a straight up Green Smoothie that tastes like you’re drinking grass, so the addition of the pineapple really does the deed in this smoothie. Drink up!

Directions:
1. Place all ingredients into the well of a blender in the order they are listed in the ingredient list. Securely fasten the lid and remove the center-top. Puree mixture (carefully pushing the items down with the back of a wooden spoon to help it begin to blend).

    Love the addition of chia seeds! They not only help fill you up, but are also nutrient rich. They can be ordered online from Health Warrior if they are not easily located in grocery stores.
