This smoothie is heavenly. It's one of my favorite sweet blends.

If you've never tried baby bok choy in a smoothie, add it to you leafy green rotation because it's mild in flavor, and goes into most blends unnoticed. Pair with sweet fruits like pineapple, mango, banana, apple, pear, citrus, berries, and grapes. Start with 1 cup, and add to taste. In large amounts, it can get slightly bitter.

Rich in vitamins A, C, and K, folate, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, manganese, and fiber, this Asian avenger is a powerful anti-inflammatory aid that boosts immunity, neutralizes harmful free radicals, helps regulate blood pressure and cholesterol, and builds healthy blood.

With grapes, orange, apple, pineapple, and avocado, this smoothie delivers your daily quota of fruit, and tastes delightful. It makes you feel like you're sitting on the beach. This blend is a s'blended introduction to green smoothies. Don't miss it.

*Probiotic Powder - I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.

*Celtic Sea Salt - I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
