we have been making a lot of green drinks around here. of course, it’s the new year and everyone is cutting this and that and everything out of their diet. i’m not good at that. i never have been. but, like I told you earlier this week, what am good at is adding good things. and adding lots of fruits and vegetables is a good thing. i love vegetables but i don’t always find it easy to eat several servings a day. what i do find manageable is to drink them in a yummy smoothie. my current favorite combo is:
+ spinach : a big handful
+ cucumber : a quarter of an english cucumber
+ pear : one half
+ banana : one half, frozen
+ mango : one handful, frozen
+ chia seeds : about a tablespoon
+ rice milk : to desired consistency
+ ice : one small handful
its good. my kids love it, kind of good and there was no bribing or brainwashing them into believing it was hulk juice. it’s really one of the only smoothies that i don’t put almond butter or yogurt in and i have to say i like it all the more.
do you love to smoothies? i’d love to hear your favorite combos.
