My friend Jess and I have started this tradition where she comes over to my place and we try new recipes. A couple of months ago, she started chatting me up about a site called Simple Green Smoothies. When she found a Ninja blender/food and drink maker on sale for almost half-price, she alerted me, for which I will forever be grateful!
My husband and I, proudly, have actually persevered with all New Year’s resolutions on fitness. We go to the gym 3-5 times a week and we are eating so clean, you would barely believe it. And now – juices and green smoothies. Yum.
My Favorite Green Smoothie (variation on Jessica’s recipe and this one)
- 1 cup of unsweetened soymilk (or 1/2 cup soymilk, 1/2 cup water, if I don’t want it too filling)
- 1 banana
- 2 handfuls of spinach (a lot! like 3 or 4 cups – it shrinks)
- 1 spoon of unsalted peanut butter
It is super good. You don’t taste spinach at all, only banana and peanut butter. Tonight I made it minus peanut butter plus Greek honey yogurt.
I also made my husband juice: beet + ginger + blueberry + apple.
You have to try it – so good.
