I should start off by letting you know that I just got a new Vitamix. So this particular recipe will require a high-powered blender.

I currently have bronchitis while I’m writing this, so I’m looking for any way to get lots of nutrients in my body to help me recover as fast as possible. I think today is the worst of it, so cooking is not really at the top of my list. But I know it’s important to eat, so I immediately turned to my sparkly, brand new Vitamix blender. Maybe it’s the congestion in my head, but I swear I heard it whisper that it would take good care of me and help me feel better if only I would turn it on. So I did.

I grabbed whatever was on the countertop and dropped it in the blender. I was very pleased with the results. I can’t taste much right now, but boy could I taste the yumminess of this smoothie! And just for the record, I had some not-sick people try this as well. They loved it, so I know my taste buds aren’t too screwed up from the congestion.

    April – Glad you enjoyed it!

    Willisurvive – I think it’ll be fine. It’s a runnier smoothie anyway. But you may want to sub with another fruit because the banana does add sweetness. Enjoy!

  4. graciouspantry says:

    Sheri – Definitely! I love mine!

    If you have a Vitamix, why core the apple? I put in whole apples, cut up. Same with pears and other fruits with seeds. The only thing I don’t put in is orange rinds and banana peels. A great machine to own.

      Personal preference. You certainly don’t have to. 🙂

      Oh yum! Thank you, I’ll try it!

  8. I heard that the trace amounts of the chemicals in apple seeds are good for us in that small amount. Something about fighting free radicals…. Not sure though!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      I’m not sure. I’ve never heard that. I’ll have to research!

    Awesome tip! Thanks!

  11. wow, no one has posted on this one for a while. I wanted a Vitamix and a Jack Lalan juicer… then I saw a mixer… the Ninja!

    My Husband just got me one for our Anniversary! Woohoo! I’m ready to start eating more fruits and veggies now! Went through your smoothie recipes and pinned most of them to my “must try” board.

    Just gave it a whirl for the first time tonight. Awesome!

    Anyway… going to try this recipe in the morning. 🙂

      Sharon – I love my Ninja too. I use it a lot more than my Vitamix simply because the Vitamix is such a monster!
