The Green Smoothie aka Shrek Shake
I said in my last blog I would add a vegetable serving and a fruit serving to my breakfasts. I read this article about green smoothies:
Basically, it's 1/2 cup frozen fruit, 1/2 cup frozen banana slices, 1 cup of milk (I sometimes use soy milk), vanilla, and optional sweetener (I use a tsp sugar), and 1 cup of raw SPINACH. It's surprisingly good. My kids like it: I call it the Shrek shake (not my idea...but it sure sells it to the kids). If I use blue or black berries, it isn't green at all. It's the yucky color you have when you mix all the colors in play-doh.
It's hard to get in the mood for it during these cold mornings, though! I'll just have to warm up by "dancing" around my kitchen to my playlist. :-P
