Today’s Smoothie

April 29th, 2013 012

This is a good one!

A beautiful friend of ours brought us a bouquet of herbs yesterday from her garden… love.

I wanted to make sure that I started adding them to our recipes today so that I actually use them, rather than admiring them while they’re decorating our table.  🙂

Here what we used today and it made just over three cups…

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 banana
  • 2 (peeled) grapefruits
  • 8 large mint leaves
  • 1c of water

Place all of the above into your vitamix or blender and whiz away until smooth.

Grapefruit and mint are lovely together!

We first tried this without the banana, but it needed a bit of something sweet to sell it to my five year old.  🙂

You could also leave out the banana and add in an avocado!  YUM!

Happy, healthy eating y’all!

Orange Smoothie

April 6th, 2013 010

A great afternoon snack!

If I could buy each and every one of you a vitamix, I would.  🙂

It’s like having a juicer, but you don’t lose any of the fiber!

What I used for just me…

  • 1/2 a banana
  • 1 peeled orange
  • 1/2 a cucumber
  • 1 large carrot
  • a pinch of fresh ginger
  • a pinch of fresh turmeric
  • just enough water to cover it all

Whiz away in the vitamix until it’s all smooth and creamy.

mmm, mmm, mmm!

Enjoy!
