For Christmas we got a one cup smoothie maker and the book “Green Smoothie Revolution”. The book peaked my interest in health again and to see if we can actually consume 8 servings of fruits and greens- raw…daily.
Today was my first batch of green smoothies. Mine was made with mango, banana and purple kale. It was super tasty and I felt full from it and took less than 3 minutes, including clean up.
When the girls got up, I made them “monkey smoothies” which was spinach, banana and apple, with the peel intact. They turned a really bright green which promoted the question from Lily
“Why is this green?”.
It reminded me of a book I read as a kid where this little boy hated veggies, or at least the green ones so a scientist found a way to turn his veggies different colors
and he loved them all.
So I put her smoothie in her new Santa cup with a straw so she could not see it, only slurp up the tasty goodness.
Chloe had a TBS and cried for more. I gave her 1 more TBS and she still was not sated. I didn’t want to over do the raw greens and have it come out in her diaper though.
