This recipe can be made in any high speed blender. Rick made it in our Nutribullet because Irwin is a single guy.

Ingredients:

Water

1 large handful of chopped Kale or any leafy green

1/2 small beet

1 small or 1/2 large Carrot

1/2 cup blueberries (can be frozen)

1/3 cup Naked Juice Green Machine

1/3 cup Naked Juice Mango

1/2 cup Pomegranate Juice

1 heaping tablespoon of freshly ground, no salt added peanut butter (peanuts only ingredient)

1 – 2 tablespoons Cacao Powder

Stainless Steel Smoothie Straws

1 -2 tablespoons Oats

1 heaping tablespoon ground Organic Flax Seeds 

Place all ingredients in Nutribullet. Add water to maximum fill line.
