Place ~3 cups of your favorite green or mixture of greens (spinach & collards) into a high speed blender.
Next add a banana broken into 1 inch pieces, add slices of a pear, discarding the core, add two cups of water.
2-3 pieces of ice are nice to add since there will be some heat generated in the mixing process.
Add 5 frozen or fresh strawberries.
Secure the lid and start the blender.
I actually have a “whole juice” button on mine that will automatically run the blender for 90 seconds. If manually running the blender always start slow and speed it up a little at a time until you reach liquefy.
This yields ~ 5 cups. Enjoy!!

This is a recipe I got a couple of weeks ago at the farmer’s market. I tried it and liked it a lot. My hope is that you will try it a like it as much as I did:
2 medium to large sweet potatoes
1 full TSP. of Ghee, butter, or other cooking oil
1/8 to 1/4 TSP. Thyme
pinch of ground cayenne pepper
pinch of cinnamon
1/8 TSP. Paprika
- Dice the potatoes into 1/2 inch to 1/4 inch cubes (the smaller the better)
- Heat the oil in the pan on medium
- Add all of the spices
- Next add the potatoes and coat well
- Continue to cook, stirring frequently until the potatoes are done.
Serve and enjoy!
