    Simple Green Smoothie

    I’m feeling very guilty about being gone from here for so long, but rest assured I have been planning recipes to share. Now to just find the time to test, photograph, and share them.

    Simple Green Smoothie
    I try to keep smoothies as simple as possible, and this one is no exception. It uses just a few key ingredients: banana, spinach leaves, lime or lemon, and water. It’s in honor of my oldest son, who took off after college graduation too soon for me to test this with him.

      So glad to see you back with a new recipe! Looking forward to seeing more. I have a thing about green smoothies; I’m sure it’s mental but for some reason can’t bring myself to drink them. I think I will give this a try, though, and break the cycle!

      Nancy-Kermit the frog sang “It’s not easy being Green!”,..but Green Smoothies are sooo good,..I love them with flat leaf parsley and or fresh mint,..spinach. Start with a basic pineapple, flat leaf parsley, spinach, honey, water.,….and then experiment with other fruits like melons, or cucumber, add ginger. It is so refreshing!

        Yes, I love pineapple in place of or in addition to banana. You can definitely add on here! And a small cucumber or a couple of slices in this recipe definitely adds to the hydration. If you add cucumber you will need a bit less water or other liquid. Thanks!
