Re: anyone do green smoothies?

My blender isn't a super fancy one, but it does the job really well. I always do the spinach/kale/chard/whatever first with water/coconut water and then add the chunkier stuff. I like the Instagram account "simplegreensmoothies" for recipes and whatnot (not my account, just one I like!). I just started with eating/drinking smoothies this summer.

My absolute fave is:
big handful spinach
1c (ish) coconut water
2 pears
1 banana
1 tsp chia seeds

I never thought to use almond milk -- great idea! I don't really follow a recipe, but if I use a lot of sweet-but-bland fruits then I like to add lemon or lime. I use a ton of spinach, and then whatever fruit is starting to go south (or in the freezer). Chia seeds if I remember them!

My fav is spinach, blueberries, almond milk, chia seeds, flax seed and sometimes a little honey or banana.

Been doing green smoothies every day for a year now, and I can feel the difference in my body. It's one of the best things you can do, and the time investment is so small!
