I came across the idea of Green smoothies recently. I became intrigued, as I love vegetables, especially green leafy vegetables and fruit smoothies are always a treat. Although one that I haven’t been eating for a long time, they seemed to have gone off my radar a couple of years ago.
Bearing in mind that hubby and I have both been suffering from colds/infections and the like over the winter, I thought maybe this might be the perfect time to try the 30 day Green Smoothie challenge.
So I found my blender tucked away at the back of a cupboard, gave it a quick dust down and set it to work.
And made this.
Its very green isn’t it? In it was some lovely ripe pineapple, (it smelt so fragrant) 2 oranges, 2 bananas, some blueberries, a little water, a large handful of spinach and a handful of rocket, it was delicious. Surprisingly you hardly taste the greens at all in this mixture, the heady notes of the pineapple and banana come through.
Hubby is quite tickled by this idea and made the smoothies this morning before going to work, I think he is enjoying them.
And have we noticed the difference, its too early to tell, I’ll let you know in a couple of weeks.
