A green smoothie recipe that is tasty and full of all that stuff that’s good for you and none of the stuff that isn’t.
I just have to share with you about this green smoothie I’ve become quiet fond of lately.
Actually, I’ve become quiet addicted to all smoothies over the past little while. Each day I proclaim, “this is my favorite!” And then the next day, I think the same thing about the newest combination. I’m constantly amazed at the full-flavor of the fruit or vegetable without even adding any sugar or honey.
Well, I’m sure you all knew. I’m just late in the inner smoothie circle, I guess.
But this green smoothie, well, I have to tell you how in the world it came to be. I made my son a strawberry and banana smoothie one morning to go along with his breakfast. My plan was for him to have that smoothie and I was going to make myself a spinach and apple smoothie I’d heard about on Dr. Oz or some other television show I watch to hear about what I should or should not be eating. Anyway, in my absent-mindedness I had only poured half of the strawberry and banana smoothie out of the blender when I plopped my handful of spinach into the blender.
I thought about taking it back out. I thought about adding the apple. I decided to just go with it.
Sometimes, just going with it really works. Not always, but just sometimes.
This, my friends, was one of those sometimes.
Here’s how I make my green smoothie (when I’m paying attention).
