I’ve been concentrating on finding the best green smoothies I can find. I know some are thinking ew, but it’s a pretty good way to get more “green” in your diet. And believe it or not, alot of these greens are amazingly good blended into fruits. They aren’t at all what you think they’d be like. Fresh and blended with fruit they taste so different (or not noticeably at all) compared to cooked versions of the same vegetable.
One of the easiest ways to get more green is to put some spirulina in your regular smoothie. Remember with spirulina, a little bit goes a long way.
I really wanted to get more Kale in my diet, it’s one of those hero foods. I must say, it’s better as a smoothie than cooked.
3 large Kale leaves (no stems)
1 cup of water
1 peeled Kiwi
Fresh spring smoothie
I call it that because all I can think when I drink it is how “fresh” and springy it feels. Plus it leaves my breath smelling good.
Giant handful of Parlsey
1 cup of strawberries
1/2 inch of peeled ginger
1 cup of Cashew Kefir (water will work as well and has less calories)
Arugula gives it a little peppery taste and with a peach that isn’t overly sweet, you get a good drink that isn’t too deserty.
1 cup Arugala
1 cup Spinache leaves
1 cup of water
Agave or Honey if needed to sweeten it
Hidden because sometimes you can get your kids to drink a berry “shake” but not to eat their greens. Spinache is easy to hide in really flavorful berries.
1 cup water
1 cup of spinache leaves
1.5 cups of mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)
Each of these smoothies are blended in the blender until smooth. Nothing fancy. Just blended.
I have a lot of work to do this week so I don’t expect the sweaters to move much beyond those stages. February really kicked my butt with having a ton of work to do and being a really short month. This week I plan to have an update for the shop. Spindles, fiber and yarn.
