How To Make a Green Smoothie! Vegetarians, this is especially for you :)

green

I really need to start making more green smoothies!

I’ve got the morning fruit smoothie routine down to a science, but I’m having a hard time getting some green veggies in there. Definitely going to use this on this morning’s smoothie. Being a life-long vegetarian, I need all the green veggies I can get.

Not to mention, I just got some AWESOME green tea lemonade from a health food store by my house that I can’t WAIT to try. It’ll be a perfect addition to a green smoothie.

I’ll post the recipe that I come up with later today 🙂

Since it’s Saturday today, I had a bit more time in the mornings then I usually do. I decided to get a bit more creative with my morning smoothies by mixing ingredients that I wouldn’t usually.

For a bit of added protein, I threw in a handful of almonds. They made the smoothie surprisingly smoother then usual, and the carrots blended together perfectly with the strawberries and apple slices.

This smoothie has an excellent variety of nutrition, and will make your taste buds smile for hours!

Ingredients:

  • Apples
  • Almonds
  • Carrots
  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • All-natural apple juice
  • Ice

Try it out and let me know what you think!

It’s another beautiful day in Sunny San Diego and I just spent 2 hours of it with my wittle yorkie Locket!

I must have burnt like 938377383 calories running around with her my back yard.

We both agree the lake is looking extra pretty today.

Locket and I are going to finish off this beautiful day with the second half of this smoothie from this morning, and some all-natural doggie treats 🙂

I’m still really excited about adding vegetables to my smoothies, and the cucumber this morning was a great addition!

I could barely taste the light and crisp flavors of the 1/2 cucumber I put in.

Adding a vegetable to every smoothie this week has made them so much more gratifying to drink!

Today’s morning smoothie ingredients:
Strawberries
Cucumber
Peaches
Banana
Peach nectar juice
Ice

Delicous and refreshing on this hot San Diego day!
