No, not the grass. (still dreaming of spring here)
Joe and I did a 14 day cleanse back in January. We've been pretty hooked on green smoothies since. I've been trying to make sure we drink one at least three times a week. They seriously make your body sing a thank you song. After drinking one every day for two weeks, my body knows what they are in a whole new way. So now if I'm feeling in a slump, it yells "hey lady, make me some green stuff!" Sometimes Joe says the same thing. He just adds a please to the end.
Speaking Joe, he surprised me with the blender for Christmas. The one I have swooned over for years. It's a refurbished version for a fraction of the cost. It is amazing you guys! Seriously. I am in smoothie heaven. (this recipe will work in a no frills blender too, read this post for details on that)
I wish I could make a glass of green delicious-ness for all of you!
But since I can't here, is the next best thing. My new favorite recipe::
5 kale leaves (tough bottom stem broken off)(torn if using a regular bender)
1 handful of parsley or cilantro
2 bananas (frozen ones are awesome!)
1 cup frozen mango (or peach)
1 TBSP of coconut oil
1 TBSP lime juice (or lemon)
1 cup coconut milk (the kind in a carton, not a can)*
2 cups water
Layer as above in blender. Blend. Sing a happy dance for your body. If you have some canned coconut milk around, just use a half cup and then up the water to 2.5 cups. This makes plenty for three smoothies. You can halve the recipe for one large one.
It's seriously delicious! Even kid approved in our house! Enjoy~~
