I'm challenging some of my family members to drink 1 green smoothie a day starting Monday, April 22nd. I LOVE green smoothies! There are so many benefits from drinking green smoothies. Here are a few great sites for more details.
Here are some sites for great recipes!
The smoothies on Rage Against the Minivan have an ingredient called kefir. I don't know if anyone has ever heard of or even uses it. If not, use YOGURT as an alternative.
Also, I found these on Pinterest but couldn't find the original source.
A few of my own personal tips (and one not-so-personal)-
*FROZEN SPINACH CUBES!!! Changed my life!!!
*If your veggies are fresh, add them to the blender first. It seems like they blends better that way.
*Use fresh and/or frozen fruit, it doesn't matter. If you're using fresh, make sure to put a little ice in there to thicken it up.
*If you haven't had green smoothies before or very often, start with SPINACH as your veggie. You can't taste it at all! It just changes the color.
*If your can't get past the fact that you're drinking something GREEN, add blueberries. It turns your smoothie purple......This is how I trick my kids into drinking green smoothies.....
GOOD LUCK FAMILY!!! LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES AND FEEL FREE TO SHARE YOUR RECIPE SUCCESSES AND/OR FAILURES ON OUR FB PAGE!!!
