I don't know how to make a normal amount of smoothie. Even if someone told me that my life depended on it, I still couldn't do it. Its either the whole Vitamix pitcher or nothing at all.
But there is some thought behind it. My husband and I have smoothies every. single. morning. for breakfast. And because I'm always hungry and mostly lazy, I made a full extra serving to have later in the day (most times for dinner).
We've got three small children and 'the dinner rush' (as my husband and I call it) around here can be a bit nuts. I rarely get the chance to make my own dinner, let alone sit down to eat it, so a smoothie for dinner works really well for me. I also find that I get a more restful night sleep if I keep what I eat after 4 PM fairly light.
2 cups of fresh pineapple
1 cup frozen wild bluberries
1 cup frozen pitted cherries
Handful of fresh spinach
1/4 cup hemp seeds
Enough water in the blender pitcher until you just barely see it come up through the fruit.
Blend, pour, store and enjoy!
