If I wanted to go on a liquid diet – smoothies would be the way to go! You can get all the nutrients you need in a smoothie, there is little waste, they can be made in a HUGE variety of flavors, and you can change it up in so many ways.
This Green Smoothie was one of the ones I whipped up this week – feel free to play around with what you put in there, one of my favorite decadent/healthy green shakes has some Peanut Butter in it! This one here is totally raw and vegetarian and even vegan if you use a non-dairy milk!
How pretty does this Smoothie look on this tray here!? I would not complain if the hubby brought up this for breakfast in bed – no crumbs or mess to worry about, and you feel even more ready to get up and start your day with all the healthy stuff loaded in here. If you are looking for more protein, add some powder or feel free to throw in any other supplements you like in your smoothies. This is sweet enough to have for a dessert but works perfect any time of day – fills you up and re energizes you for sure!
Please, Please, Please give these Green Smoothies a try if you have not jumped on the Bandwagon yet!!
I promise you that you won’t be sorry you tried it…
- 1 banana
- 1 apple
- 1 pear
- ½ to 1 cup milk (I used almond)
- 1 cup (packed) spinach (I used a little more than ½ of a 6oz bag)
- Layer your ingredients into your high quality blender. Be sure to start with some liquid and the softest ingredients (banana) so they will get everything going. If you have a blender with a stick/plunger you may need to mix it up with that to get it moving.
- Process until smooth. Taste, then pour into glasses.
If you like THIS Smoothie from this post – you may also be a fan of this variation that has some strawberries and yogurt in it:
