Last night I taught the young women in our ward, how to make a smoothie.When the leader asked me to show the girls how to make yummy fruit smoothies I asked if I could put some greens in there too, to which she responded, "as long as it tastes really good!" :) I think all my green smoothies taste really good, but I know what she means, it needs to taste good to those who are new to green smoothies, and perhaps who don't eat many greens, or at least a variety, regularly. So I came up with a recipe that has lots of fruits, but I think it's so important to put in the greens because of their cleansing and detoxifying properties and they are just an all around amazing food, so I put in a little so they could see that you can have it in there AND it still tastes good! The recipe below is what I wrote down as I was experimenting...I used one whole banana and apple and also added 1 cup of ice.
Last weekend Scott and I took Annabelle out for her birthday date. She wanted to eat at Sweet Tomatoes...I think mostly for the soft serve ice cream and chocolate muffins :). I love it too for the salads and soups...and blueberry muffins :).
We sure love this beauty! Her sweet, good spirit, loving demeanor and fun-loving personality is a blessing in our home and to our family.
