I found this recipe at A Moderate Life. and adapted it slightly.

The Green Monstah Smoothie

1 frozen very ripe banana
1 cup mixed frozen berries
1 cup frozen pineapple, papaya or mango, or a combination of the three
1 apple
1 carrot
1 small piece ginger, peeled
1 stalk celery
1/2 cucumber with skin on
1 cup sprouts if you have them
1 cup dark leafy greens like kale, chard, arugula or romaine lettuce***remember to alternate greens over a few days as they contain compounds that can affect your health if eaten in concentration over many days
2 tablespoons whole flax seed
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon coconut shreds

Cut veggies and fresh fruits and place in the blender--add seeds and oil. Add 1/2 cup filtered water and start blending on slow--then turn to high--when that portion is blended--add in the frozen ingredients a bit at a time and blend--adding water as necessary to keep the blender working. Pour and enjoy!

I also add 2-3 prunes or pitted dates to add texture and fiber and sweetness
Wheatgrass juice powder for more vitamins and minerals
2-4 tablespoons of whole fat organic plain yogurt for protein.
1 tablespoon of chia seeds for extra omega-3 fatty acids and fiber...
