This recipe is from celebrity nutritionist, blogger and author Kimberly Snyder.  Kimberly wrote The Beauty Detox Solution which promotes a simple approach to cleansing your digestive system which can result in efficient weight loss, more vibrant and lustrous hair and skin, and better overall health.  For a limited time, this book is included with the purchase of a Vitamix 5200.  Substitute 6 to 7 ice cubes for a half cup of water and/or use a frozen banana to make the smoothie colder.

1 1/2 to 2 cups water
1 head romaine lettuce, rough chopped
1 cup spinach
3 or 4 celery stalks, halved
1 apple, quartered
1 pear, quartered
1 banana, peeled
1/2 lemon, peeled
1/3 bunch parsley (optional)
1/3 bunch cilantro (optional)

Place all ingredients except fruit in blender and run on High speed for 40 to 50 seconds (“Whole Juice” cycle with a Blendtec).  Add fruit and blend on High speed for another 30 to 40 seconds or until desired consistency is achieved (“Whole Juice cycle with Blendtec – may stop early if desired).
