  • 1½ cup (360 ml) water

  • 1½ cup (45 g) baby spinach
  • 3 (205 g) celery stalk
  • 1 (120 g) apple, cored, halved
  • 1 (120 g) pear, cored, halved
  • 1 (110 g) banana, peeled
  • ½ lemon, peeled



  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container and secure the lid. 

  2. Start the machine on its lowest speed, and quickly increase to its highest speed.

  3. Blend for 45 seconds or until smooth, using tamper as needed. 

Chef's Note: For more flavor, add cilantro and parsley leaves to this smoothie. If all the ingredients don't fit into the container, start the blend and add additional ingredients through the lid plug while blending.
