We had a rare moment at our house today - our leftover fruit just HAPPENED to be the same fruits used in our Demonstration green smoothie! Not going to lie...we are pretty lazy, so our green smoothies are usually whatever greens we have laying around in our fridge. Therefore, this was a pretty momentous occasion!
The past few days have been spent eating out with out-of-town family, so our bodies were screaming for something more wholesome, and this green smoothie certainly hit the spot.
Green smoothies are a great way to rejuvenate. If you ever find yourself feeling sluggish, try making a green smoothie! This one is made with fruits (orange, banana, pineapple, lime) and our best friend, SPINACH (a whole pound!). If you've ever caught us at our demos, you'll notice that we like to pack in the greens more than other demonstrators...hehe. If you're just trying this out for the first time, you can add in a dollop of honey or sweetener of your choice; usually, we use soaked dates to sweeten our smoothies, but I didn't have any on hand. I also added a sprinkle of sunflower seeds, because Will is supposed to add them to his diet but doesn't like to eat them.
This is a GREAT beginner's smoothie, because it's sweet from the fruit and you can't taste any of the greens. Since we are used to drinking these, we can't taste the greens at all; if a pound of spinach is too much for you, just add in a handful or two, and work your way up. You'll be feeling so great so soon that you'll be ITCHING to throw in more greens!
