Sweet Green Smoothie

This might be the most refreshing drink you have ever had in the morning :)  I love the way it makes me feel when I have one.  It is so refreshing and delicious.  You have to try it at least once!  Your kids might not go for it, but when you taste how sweet it is with Kearn's Nectar, anybody can drink it.  We sell this one down at our restaurant, Sandy's Fine Food.  The recipe is a little different though.  I can't give away all my secrets :)

Sweet Green Smoothie
1 can Kearn's Nectar (any flavor, or any juice)
2 c. water
2 large carrots, peeled
1/2 cucumber
2 bananas
1/4 lemon (with peel if you have a high powered blender)
2-3 large handfuls of organic spinach

Put ingredients in your blender in the order listed, except the ice.  Blend until smooth.  Then add 1 c. or more of ice to get it real cold.  Enjoy :) 
You can always add a little agave if you need it.  I don't use it but it would help if you're just getting use to green smoothies.

This does make a large batch so if your family won't drink it with you, just half the recipe and it should be perfect!!  If your family does decide to join you, hopefully it will look like these happy boys!!
