Sinclair's Green Smoothie

Sinclair, I just want to say "thanks." Thanks for turning my sister on to your green smoothie. Two years ago she whipped one up for me and I have yet to find another that tops it. 

Add to high-powered blender (like BlendTec or Vita-Mix) and blend at high speed for 1-2 minutes :

1/2 cup raw ALMONDS
1 ORANGE with skin sliced off (leave white pith on)
Handful of KALE (ribs removed)
1 cup fresh APPLE CIDER
1 scoop of your favorite PROTEIN POWDER (optional)
1/2 cup ICE
1 cup cold WATER

MODIFIED DIET CONSIDERATIONS: This is a tasty smoothie if you are tolerating fructose. If you are on a low-fruit/low-fructose diet you can replace the apple cider with water and, forgo or choose a low-fructose fruit to add or simply sweeten it up with a few drops of liquid stevia.

What protein powder do you use?

I am using Clearvite right now ... from my naturopath. But in the past I have mixed pea protein powder and rice protein powder. That way I steer clear of soy, whey, etc ... because they did not sit well with Miles.
So glad you finally got a blender!! Crank it up and start making that nut milk ;) Go girl!

Looks delicious! For low fructose though, apples (and pears) are not good - the banana and orange would actually be better :)

Hi Zoe, thank you so much for the info. Now you've got me hot on the trail to learn all about fructose.
