The kids and I enjoyed a green smoothie today. Usually, we just have banana smoothies and I add ice, flax seed, wheat germ, etc. It varies every time. Sometimes we add strawberries or blue berries.
Today, we tried spinach and apple along with our usual banana. I did have to add about a half cup of water to get it going. I don't have one of those 3-horse power blenders. Mine is an everyday Cuisinart.
It came out good! The kids liked it too...always a plus. They like raw baby spinach anyway, so it wasn't hard convincing them to try it.
We watched a few videos on youtube and then went and experimented ourselves.
I've been wanting to try a green smoothie for a while now and am glad I finally did. Next time I am at the grocery store, I am going to buy some kale and try that too.
I bought this ebook and look forward to trying the recipes. But, you can just experiment too.
Here are the YouTube Video's we watched.
This guy made us laugh. He was so nonchalant, he gave some good tips on how to start with green smoothies.
Here is the last one we watched. We enjoyed her accent. 🙂
Here's to your health,
