  1. Add apple, then ice, water, carrot, banana, and orange to pitcher of high-speed electric blender (one suitable for crushing ice and handling firm textures).
  2. Blend on high (or use “smoothie” option, if applicable) for approximately 1 minute. (If necessary, stop machine intermittently to scrape down sides or press ingredients down to remove any air pockets that might impede blending.)
  3. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.


  1. If you want to go “green,” add baby spinach with other ingredients and blend, as directed. Or transfer half of ABC smoothie to a pitcher, then add spinach to remaining smoothie mix in blender; blend as directed.
  2. To serve, fill glasses halfway with green smoothie, then add ABC smoothie to top for a bit of a layered look.
