This is how I make it in my sadly-not-a-vitamix blender. If you have a vitamix, I’m sure you can just throw it all in at once and blend away.

Blend the apple, pears and cuke with water first, then throw in the basil and as many greens as you can cram into the machine, add a little more water if necessary or to taste, and blend. I had one of those long, skinny cucumbers, curved like the letter C. Not sure if that’s an english cuke or not, but they’re really crisp and have tiny seeds as compared to the regular kind. I’m sure the regular kind would work nicely, too. I’d remove the seeds, though. Personal preference.

Now that I’m thinking about it (and sipping it), I’ll bet some fresh ginger would really put some kapow in this thing. Mmmmm… I’ll have to try it that way next time!

I live in pear country, and they’re ripe and ready right now. Also seeing lots of new, fresh apples, yay! I was craving something very light and refreshing for lunch today, and this really hit the spot. I think it’d be great with kale, too, but that might require a sweetener. I just wanted plain ol’ fruits & greens today. And it’s a fabulous, bright peridot-green color.
