Apples bananas collard greens smoothie is an enjoyable vegan recipe to begin the day, and it takes only 15-20 minutes to prepare including the time to wash fresh collard greens. Smoothies do not store well for any length of time in the refrigerator, so we suggest that you only make as much as you can consume at one time.

Apples Bananas Collard Greens Smoothie Preparation:
We each have two or more 12-oz. glasses of a vegan green smoothie for our breakfast (or any other time of the day), so we usually completely fill the large container of our Vita-Mix high speed blender. If you wish to make a smaller amount, cut the recipe in half.
Peel one of the bananas, break into pieces, and place in the bottom of the blender container.
Wash the apples and cut into sections so you can remove the cores, and place the cut pieces in the blender container on top of the banana.
Wash and clean the fresh collard greens, and add to the blender container until it is 3/4 full with the fresh, frozen or cooked greens, peel 2 of the bananas, and add the bananas to the blender container, forming a bowl in the center of the container for the flax seeds and stevia so that the seeds don’t touch the sides of the container.
Add the ice, cover, and run the blender at high speed until the ingredients are smooth, using the tamper as required.
While the blender is still running at high speed, add any remaining greens, extra apples, bananas, and/or ice through the hole in the cover to fill the container and achieve the desired consistency of the smoothie.
Pour into glasses and serve with a straw. Enjoy!
