It's not easy being green.

Actually, yes it is. And delicious too.

Oh how I have missed you, green smoothie. I am sorry I kept forgetting to get ingredients at the grocery store and went over a week without enjoying your deliciousness. I hope you can forgive me.
In the words of Olive, (insert super cute stuffy nose/scratchy throat voice here)"Mama, why didn't we have these all long week? I LUB smoovies!"

Today's smoothie consisted of the usual suspects:
2 oranges
1 banana
frozen fruit medley (peaches, pineapple, mango and strawberries)

And yes, the blender is still kickin'. I have resorted to blending in stages to get the job done. Fresh fruit: blend. Add frozen fruit and a splash of water: blend. Add spinach: blend. Plug nose against the burning smell: done.  Pain in the ass: yes. We are now considering a Ninja Blender. Several people have recommended it to us and since it's roughly a third of the price of a low end VitaMix it's a bit more in our reach.

Have you had your green smoothie today?


  1. I am assuming the spinach leaf was for dramatic affect, or did the blender miss it.

    On another note did you leave me any?

  2. There's a blender called ninja?! Must. Get.

    No green smoothie today. Had one after class last night - blueberries, mango, banana, spinach. Earthy vs. sweet.

  3. CT: Both. The blender missed it and I fished it out and put it in my glass for dramatic effect. Nice, eh?

    I did leave some for you. Because I am that nice.

    emt: My thoughts exactly. Who cares if it works or not with a name like that. Nice combo. Sounds like something CT would enjoy.
