In honour of this amazing Vitamix giveaway I am declaring this "I Love Vitamix Month". I will share a delicious quick easy Vitamix recipe every day during the month of January. YES!

I will post some of my favourite recipes made in a Vitamix.

So for DAY 1 of "I Love Vitamix Month" and Day 1 of the new year, I thought that it only fitting that I post a green smoothie that we can all start off on a healthy note. So here is Vitamix Recipe #1: My Favourite Raw Vegan Spicy Vegetable Green Smoothie that accounts for your daily dose of vegetables. I drink this healthy veggie packed green smoothie almost every week. It is a fantastic smoothie for health, vitality, energy, detoxification AND hangovers! LOL! PERFECT for New Year's Day! Ha! Boy, will that cayenne pepper get your system going and wake you up! WOO!

I like this green smoothie a little bit salty than I have specified. But I am a vegan alkalarian, so I consume a lot of salts. But I find that most people prefer the quantities that I have specified in the recipe. I also add in a little bit more cayenne pepper. Start with a pinch and add more to taste. A little goes a long way! Give this smoothie a spin and let me know how you go!

Happy New Year! May 2012 be filled with love, joy, peace, good health, nourishment, and anything else your hearty desires. Oink Oink!

I did not receive payment to host this event. However, I did receive a Vitamix machine to give away this month.
