A Protein and Greens Drink, That Tastes Like Desert! Voted My #1 Green Drink For Kids and Adults Who Have a Bit of a Sweet Tooth

” Ingo, how do I get my kids to eat well? How do I get my kids to eat their green veggies? How do I make a smoothie that my child will like?”

I know first hand how challenging it can be to get kids to eat those green healthy veggies, I have heard lots of stories while doing demo’s for Vitamix – especially how do I get my kids to eat Kale, Chard and Spinach.  The answer for me came like a flash of lighting somewhere on the road between Anza, Calif and my Home  in Palm Desert, Ca.  I was listening to a radio station and someone was talking about an Orange Julius remember  those? If you do, I already know how old you are by that answer!

So it was at that moment  when I came up with  the idea of maybe I could add  some healthy greens, and some other goodies and just maybe, I will have an answer to the Those first three questions above.

So the next time I set my booth up at a road show I proceeded to pack my Vitamix container with an organic orange, some banana, (I use avocado at home in place of the banana) a hand full of fresh leafy greens, some more fruit, a cup of ice and a hint of  Medicine Flower Organic Vanilla.  and a little Sunwarrior Warrior Blend Pea Hemp and Cranberry protein mix. I turned on my Vitamix  and watch my creation take shape. I proceeded to grab a beer mug, and tasted its green and glowing drink and BINGO… my tastes buds where back in the 70’s without the guilt! So today, I share it at many of my shows here in the San Diego/L.A area.

You Don’t Need the Water Like in The Video if You Put in Enough Ice In and Use an Orange at the Bottom, You Can Try it Both Ways
