For the past couple of weeks, I've been having green smoothies everyday... on Thursday, I ventured out to the grocery store for some new, nutritious smoothie ingredients.
Behold:Yes, that's KALE you see. Also strawberries, blueberries, pomegranate juice (which I tried for the first time), ground flaxseed, and a banana. In the blender they go:
Every now and then I had to shake things around in there so it would all blend... but I persevered... and blend it did:
It was delicious!! The amounts I used were:
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1 tablespoon flaxseed
- 1/4 cup pomegranate juice
- 1/4 cup orange juice (not pictured)
- 2-3 kale leaves
I didn't taste the kale AT ALL. Also, I'm not a fan of eating fresh blueberries, but I really enjoyed them in the smoothie. I also didn't taste the flaxseed.
I always feel so smug when I'm drinking my green smoothies! I LOVE the fact that I can get so many healthy things into one delicious beverage.
Do you drink green smoothies? What do you put in them?
