Juice and Green Smoothie Time!


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.
