Lots of Greens Ginger-Apple Smoothie

Lots of Greens Ginger-Apple Smoothie

Do you go through smoothies in cycles?  I do.
Sometimes I need something tart and tangy.  Something that says "Wake up!"

When it comes to leafy greens, ginger and apples … organic is best.  For ease and convenience (and because I'm pretty lazy), I often buy the organic baby spinach in tubs from Costco.  I add them to my Vitamix jar first, so I can give them a quick rinse in vinegar water, and then carry on with the rest of my ingredients.  (Yes, you need to wash your pre-washed organic greens!).
