The evolution of my smoothie making. I started out following recipes, then I couldn’t help but change it and add here and there. My latest additions are dates and a whole lemon. I have a very abundant lemon tree and finding a use for them is wonderful. These recent smoothies are tart and sweet.
This one is a banana, almond milk, flax, parsley, orange juice, grated ginger, dates, carrots, frozen berries and mango mixture. I don’t measure anything, it is most important to have a good ratio of liquid to solid and to add frozen items at the end. The Vitamix is truly as amazing as I heard it would be.
I still go to Jamba occasionally, haven’t found the magical green tea powder they use to make their amazing Matcha Green Tea Blast.
So much happens in the world every day, a homemade smoothie is small. A small something to start the day…grateful for the small, routine, normal day to day things.
