GRAPEFRUIT-STRAWBERRY ICEE


Image

I borrowed this great picture from random pictures of Acai Smoothies, but it looks just like my combination.

We often think citrus needs juicing, but blending (especially in a  Vitamix, is a great way to make it quick and full of fiber and nutrients often discarded in juicing.

2 cups coconut water

1 whole organic grapefruit, peeled (fresh or frozen)

1 whole banana (fresh or frozen)

1/2 – 1 packet Sambazon frozen Acai

1/2 organic lemon juice

Sweetener to taste (liquid Stevia or dates, for example)

Ice cubes (about 1 cup if mixed with frozen fruits, more if fruits are fresh)

Put everthing except ice cubes in blender and increase speed to High and add ice cubes.   Blend in Vitamix about 45 seconds, other blenders may take longer.

Enjoy!
