Celery Appleberry Smoothie

So I’ve decided that it’s time to expand my repertoire when it comes to smoothie making. For a long time I’ve shied away from more exotic ingredients, and by exotic I mean vegetables. So this morning I looked in the fridge and came up with a little something different.

 

Celery Appleberry Smoothie

Makes one 8 oz smoothie.

  • 1 stalk celery, washed and chopped
  • 1/4 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 apple, chopped
  • 1/2 banana, chopped
  • 1/4 cup water

I have a GREAT GE single serving blender that I got for 20 bucks at Walmart.  Use your full size blender if that’s what you’ve got.

Just spin for 2 minutes, to make sure that everything is well blended!

MUCH better than I would have thought! The celery adds a little zip, but isn’t overpowering.

I love my veggies, but I’ve been in a veggie rut for a while.  Everything you read says how great vegetables are in smoothies, but I’ll admit that though I’ve tried it at restaurants, I’ve always maintained a fruit only smoothie regimen at home.

This is one that I’ll have again. Without a doubt.

  1. Sounds yummy. I’ll have to try it tomorrow morning. Maybe my kids will even drink it. It wouldn’t hurt to get an extra serving of veggies into them.
