My First (homemade) Green Smoothie

Well, I've been reading about these "green smoothies" and since I do like Naked Juice's Green Machine I figured I'd give it a try making my own.  I used the recipe I found on Katherine's blog - Real Food Runner - and....

I felt so healthy putting all that natural stuff in the blender...

The pureed concoction didn't even gross me out.
I served it in a jar, because Katherine made hers look so cute in a jar and I was sure it tastes better that way.

And I decided to add 2 tsp. honey to whole mix.  Oh, and ice.  It was much, much better cold!  The recipe ended up making two of those jars full and I drank all of it - one for lunch and one for after-lunch snack.  The honey added just enough sweet boost for my taste.

This is a smoothie I will definitely make again..[insert dramatic pause]...never thought I'd say that...as I told my friend in a text "My New Ending continues... trying new things."  :)


  1. I make green smoothies sometimes, but more often I do green juices.

  2. Hi Leah - So glad you loved the smoothie. :) We're going to be doing another 7-day challenge starting Jan 1st!
