I love green. It's my favorite color. I love to wear green and I love to see green in the grass and trees in the summer. There are so many beautiful shades of green. I even like to eat green foods - celery, cucumbers, broccoli and spinach. In spite of all of this love for green I have never wanted to drink a green smoothie. Actually, I may have wanted to but couldn't get past the thought of it tasting like wheat grass. I know some of you love that, but I have a limit in eating things that taste too much like the earth. Personal problem, I know.
I decided to get over my fear and brave the green smoothie. I was very pleasantly surprised, in fact, a little shocked. Since my first green smoothie adventure I have tried a few varieties of the beautiful green drink. If you have not yet ventured into the world of green this is a great (and pretty tame) way to do it. If you are a green smoothie expert, please share your recipes below, on my Facebook page, or on my Pinterest Smoothie board.
I have included several "Traci Tested" recipes to get you started.
Very Green Smoothie #1 (this was the first recipe I tried) - Extra large handful baby spinach - Half an avocado - One cup frozen strawberries - Half a banana - 1 cup water
Super Berry Green Smoothie #2 - Extra large handful baby spinach - One scoop Vanilla Nutrimeal - Two scoops Orange Cream Nutrimeal - Half cup Bolthouse Farms Berries + carrot - Half cup water - Five ice cubes
Apple Blueberry Green Smoothie #3 (made by my sister-in-law, Naomi) - Large handful baby spinach - One cup blueberries - Half an apple - Ice - Water
The green smoothie world is a great, healthy adventure!
