I have to admit that the idea of drinking something green really doesn’t appeal to me. So, when I was given a green smoothie to try for breakfast recently, I was hesitant to say the least. Visually, I wasn’t sure I could get past the idea of drinking something green. But, my kids were with me and we all decided to try it at the same time (it was like a “dare” or “challenge”).
“Not sure I want to do this”
The trick to a “beginner” green smoothie is to mix a mild green vegetable with your favorite fruits. Spinach and romaine lettuce are good beginner greens. Although the drink will certainly be green, the taste will be fruity, and you won’t even be able to taste the green vegetables.
|“Mmm Not bad!”|
Surprisingly, my kids actually liked it and so did I. I’m not sure I could drink a big glass of a green smoothie, yet, but it’s a start.
Green smoothies are a great way to get an arsenal of phytochemicals all in a glass. If you want to make a super antioxidant smoothie, try blueberries, spinach, and banana.
