Ya'll ready to poop like a goose again? I made that comment when I made my crockpot oatmeal. It's a term of endearment my daddy uses for, uh, "high fiber" foods. ~ giggle
So, a friend had posted about some green smoothies she had tried, check them out here. These looked AWESOME, but I didn't have all these ingredients on hand. I DID have spinach however, and I was excited!! My roommate turned trainer and fitness guru at Zen Pulse would be proud. Annie's always telling me, more fiber, more fiber. OK!!! I'll put the stuff in a smoothie!! GEE WHIZ!
She was right!
It's DELICIOUS! And doesn't taste like spinach! Even though I do love spinach. So give this a whirl and use what you've got around the house..... and drink lots of water.
And make good choices.
And wish for world peace.
And make your bed.
1 heaping cup of strawberries
5-6 ice cubes
2-3 T of yogurt (I was out of my fav greek yogurt, so I used sour cream - it was great!)
3/4 c apple juice
2 T honey
1-2 cups of spinach (I really jammed the stuff in there, and it came out really good)
Blend it all up! Usually the other thing I hate about homemade smoothies, because I don't have the $5,678,412 Vita-mix blender, it oftens melts and gets kinda gross. This smoothie makes two good glasses, so I put one in the fridge to drink hours later. Well, for whatever reason, it was still icy and delicious!
Let me know what other spinach-y combinations ya'll come up with. I'm wanting to try the flaxseed one next. A girl can never have too much fiber. As long as she drinks plenty of water; which I recently learned. Eeek.
Peace, love, and smoothie making :)
