ith Super Bowl madness behind us, I’m guessing that there are a number of us wanting to move away from chips and dips and work on getting a Beyonce-like energy as we head into this bright and beautiful new week. Yeah? Well, you’re in luck because I have a green juice recipe coming at you.
For the new year, I signed up for a free challenge with Simple Green Smoothies. The goal was to drink a green juice every morning for the first 30 days of January. They included a lot of great recipes to make it easy. (Pretty sure you can still sign up to do the challenge regardless of the time of year. Check out their website if you’re interested!) Even though Bobby and I eat a pretty healthy diet, I still know we could always do better on incorporating more vegetables. This habit of making green juices has been a great way to incorporate an automatic serving of spinach or kale into the day. My body craves it now! (As I write this, in fact, I’m drinking a big glass of kale, carrot, orange, and mango.)
Sometimes I use a recipe from the Green Smoothie challenge and other times I just throw stuff in that sounds good. A few weeks ago, I did just that – and the results were great. Bobby and I both loved it AND I happened to make it on Graham’s adoption day anniversary, so we toasted his presence in our family.
It was good enough to jot down the ingredients and good enough to share with you! If you’re looking for something healthy, fresh, and delicious, this is it. Throw all of this in a blender and drink up.
I’m sure there are a million recipes on the internet similar to this. I don’t claim that it’s super original, just that it’s super tasty. (Oh, one more thing: despite this being a “green” juice, it’s not really green in appearance. The strawberries mix in a weird way with the spinach to create a…brownish color. It’s not the most photogenic drink ever but, thankfully, your belly won’t care.)
