Ruby Red Grapefruit Smoothie with Spinach

Adding the stevia for sweetness is optional because the kiwi and bananas provide their own sweet flavor to counter the tart flavor of the grapefruit. (This smoothie recipe was selected to be on the 7 Smoothie Recipes for a Healthy Week)

Ingredients

  • 1 red grapefruit (peeled and deseeded)
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 2 bananas
