My Green Smoothie

Buying the Ninja blender was not a waste of money, even if our son refuses to drink anything but vanilla milk shake. Yes, we make those for him from time to time. But today I decided to address my deficiency in calcium and potassium the natural way, that is, not relying entirely on meat or dairy or supplements.

Here’s my version of a green smoothie. I used the same ingredients from my lunch of Vietnamese fresh spring rolls with shrimps


  • 1 piece Kiwi
  • 1/4 Avocado
  • 1/4 cup Cucumber
  • 1/2 cup Kale (about 10 leaves)
  • 1/4 cup Broccoli
  • 1/4 cup Mint leaves (about one stalk)
  • 1/2 cup Grapefruit raw juice
  • 1/4 cup Minute Maid Original Orange Juice
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 3 ice cubes

You will get at least 2 cups or 2 servings and each serving is 176 calories. This is very high in vitamins A and C, high in B6, very low in sodium, low in fat, and no cholesterol. It is high in sugar and carbs due to the grapefruit juice, orange juice, and honey.
