Apples collard greens pear spinach green smoothie is a delightful vegan recipe for breakfast or any other time of the day, which takes about 15 minutes to prepare. We each have two 12-oz. glasses of a green smoothie for our breakfast, so we usually completely fill the large container of our Vita-Mix high speed blender. We use about 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of greens in the recipe. If you wish to make a smaller amount, cut the recipe in half.
