Skinny Kitchen’s Green Dream and a Vitamix Giveaway!

Print Friendly


This is the very first “giveaway”contest on Skinny Kitchen! I was so excited when Vitamix contacted me and asked if I’d like to try one.  After trying it…I LOVE IT!!! I’m so impressed with my new Vitamix. You can pretty much make anything with this high-powered blender, including smoothies, puree soups, sauces, frozen drinks, nut butters…The possibilities are endless!!! Since many of you have asked me to create a home recipe for a healthy green drink such as Naked Juice Green Machine, I decided to tackle it using my new Vitamix. It came out fantastic! I found that you can even add things like broccoli, celery and apples with the skin left on and the Vitamix easily blends this drink to become completely smooth. Amazing right? With most regular blenders, it ends up with lots of residue from these ingredients.

***I’m even more excited that one of you will win a Vitamix!!! To enter this contest, be sure to scroll down past my Skinny Green Dream recipe.
Good luck everyone!

Skinny Green Dream

Let me first say that usually, I’d rather eat my calories than drink them. Especially my fruits and vegetables. But since I created this dreamy drink, my husband and I have enjoyed it everyday! It’s a super healthy, delicious way to fill up on both fruits and veggies. Each serving has 141 calories, 1 gram of fat and 4 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. Here’s to a super healthy, fiber rich juice smoothie your entire family will enjoy. Even the kids!
So drink up!!!

Prep Time: 10 minutes


3 cups apple, unpeeled, seeds and core removed

1 cup pineapple juice

¾ cup frozen mango, not defrosted

¾ cup broccoli florets

¾ cup fresh spinach, packed

¾ cup kale, packed

½ cup celery, sliced

½ banana


1. Add all ingredients to the Vitamix. Start by blending on low. Turn up to level 4 or 5 to blend well.
Continue to blend until completely smooth.

2. Store in the refrigerator. It will keep for several days.

Makes 3½ cups total (each serving 1 cup)

Prep Tip
You can make this in a regular blender. Be sure to peel the apples first. It won’t be nearly as smooth as it is made with the Vitamix but it will still taste delicious.

Weight Watchers (old points) 2
Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS 4

    My wife and I have used a Vitamix for 10 years now, I am so glad that you will start creating Vitamix recipes. There are a few hundred recipes on Vitamix website.

    We ordered the 32-ounce Dry Grains container last week. You can grind whole grains, herbs, peanuts for your own peanut butter.

    I am pretty sure Skinny Kitchen, Weight Watchers and Vitamix can be a great team. Looking forward to this.

    Brian and Lynn
