A deliciously balanced blend of sweet and citrus fruits masks the spinach in this green smoothie.


  • 1 cup (130 g) ice cubes
  • ½ medium (60 g) banana, peeled
  • ¼ lime, with peel
  • 1 ½ cups (45 g) baby fresh spinach
  • ½ cup (85 g) pineapple chunks, peeled (with core)
  • ½ medium (65 g) orange
  • ¾ cup (115 g) green grapes


  1. Place ingredients in the Vitamix Immersion Blending Jar or appropriately sized container.
  2. Submerge the immersion blender below the surface of the liquid, or as close to the ingredients as possible.
