    I love to put grapes in my green smoothies. Grapes somehow seem to neutralize just about any bitter/vegetable taste that green smoothies tend to come with. Of course I always throw in some frozen berries too.

    2 C fresh spinach, washed
    1 banana –frozen in pieces
    1 tbsp Apple juice concentrate
    2 tsp Carlson’s Lemon flavored fish oil

    Blend on smoothie. Then add
    1 scoop Rainbow light vanilla protein energizer.

    Pulse 3 or 4 times.

    Sometimes I add a slice of lemon or ginger

    Almost everyday I make this smoothie. It’s so light and refreshing.
    a cup of coconut water (chilled)
    about half a blender of kale or kale and spinach
    a handful of frozen pineapple chunks
    a handful of frozen mango chunks
    a dash of cayanne

    I was hoping for a list of vegetable/fruits that can be juiced whole (skins and all) versus the ones that you definitely have to process. Can anyone point me to such a list?
