When I saw my friend Hillary was participating in a Green Smoothie Challenge, courtesy of the Facebook group Green Smoothie Challenge #3 I knew I had to give it a try too.
I've had green smoothies before, but this is the first time I've challenged myself to make them daily for any length of time.
Today, on day 3 I tried something new and threw an avocado into the mix which made it super smooth and creamy.
A side benefit I've discovered to green smoothies, is that it is an excellent way to get my son to drink his vegetables. This challenge couldn't have come at a better time for him nutritionally. More on that tomorrow.
What goes in my green smoothies you may wonder?
My general rule of thumb is 60% fruit and 40% greens.
Today's smoothie recipe for you - which is so delicious I'll be making it again for sure. It's just a little bit sweet, and a lot creamy.
2 frozen bananas
1 large kiwi
1 small avocado
2 cups spinach
2.5 cups water
We're loving it!
I've found a new sort of green thumb!
