green smoothie Wednesday

Our green smoothie today-interesting combo but still very good, at least I thought so and so did my youngest-surprisingly! My oldest on other hand drank hers while closing her nose (this is shocking because it is my oldest that totally eats almost everything, veggies and all, while my youngest prefers barbecue chicken with a side of chocolate). Really I think its all about the texture-and the context,"ooh a smoothie is a cool juice like drink", the youngest thinks while the oldest says to herself, "wow this seems like a blended salad, I'll eat my salads whole, thank you very much."
Our smoothie included watercress, frozen peaches, an old apple (I bet you can tell I have lots of old apples around), a small piece of ginger, coconut oil, lemon juice, a splash of water, ice cubes, and a big squeeze of agave nectar. I loved how the ginger gave this smoothie some pizazz.

(this afternoon I wanted to get some stretching in, so I decided to go to yoga. Stretching my goodness, I was sweating buckets in that class. Some of those positions were super tough, but you do what you can do, and drinking a green smoothie can only help :)


  1. I may have to try out a smoothie or two. I've got a fresh pineapple in the fridge. Humm... :-)

  2. Try it out Libby and let me know what you put into your smoothie, I like to take notes (:
