Broccoli Collard Greens Kale Spinach Green Smoothie is a great vegan recipe way to begin the day. Preparation time is about 15-20 minutes is you are using fresh greens. We each have three 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, which takes about 15-20 minutes to prepare if we have to wash fresh greens. 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.

Broccoli Collard Greens Kale Spinach Green Smoothie Preparation:
Wash the apple, cut lengthwise into quarters, remove the stem and core, and place the apple pieces in the bottom of the blender container.
Wash and peel the carrots and onion, cut into chunks, add to the blender container, and add the tomato paste, flaxseed, ginger and stevia.
Wash and clean the broccoli and fresh greens, and add to the blender container until it is 3/4 full with the fresh, frozen or cooked greens (sometimes we use leftover cooked greens such as from our Collard Greens, Spinach and Onions recipe), add the ice and a cup of water, cover, and run the blender at high speed until the ingredients are smooth, using the tamper as required.
Add additional broccoli, greens and water to fill the container and achieve the desired consistency of the green smoothie.
Pour into glasses and serve with a straw. Enjoy!
