Installment #2 of GREEN recipes. I always read about detox smoothies and all sorts of other healthy-type-things, but am often too scared (or not enough dedication to “detox”) to try them. So when I found this Green Spinach Smoothie that included sweet flavors AND chocolate – I knew I had found something that was finally worth my time/ingredients to try!
I am current on about a week and a half for being sick (right now I feel like I am one cough away from losing the voice – maybe I should have listened more than a week ago and gone to the doctor, but at this point I am almost getting better – so no point in paying the co-pay!) After two snow days that were perfect for allowing my body some rest time we had a 2-hour delay… perfect time for a healthy breakfast! I whipped this up, shared with Rich and within a half hour we both used the bathroom (I’m not giving you details – but you get my point). SO – not only did this taste happy and healthy and thick and filling, but it also wiped some of that garbage out of my system. I think that Rich enjoyed the flavor – but never wants me to make it again since he didn’t like it cleaning him out!

- Throw everything in a blender and mix. (if needed add a tiny bit of honey to sweeten)
