I love my Vitamix and use it almost everyday to pulverize veggies into yummy smoothies. I love starting the day off with a nice serving of raw fruit and veggies. I add some greek yogurt to hold me over till lunch time.

5 – 6 leaves lacinato kale
1 valencia orange, peeled
1 c frozen mango chunks
1/2 c greek yogurt
1 c water

In a powerful blender, combine kale, orange, yogurt, frozen mango and water. Blend on the highest speed until smooth and creamy.

1 WW PP.
