1 stalk celery
1 banana
1 c. frozen strawberries

ooh, maybe I'll make that for breakfast tomorrow! I have all the ingredients and Joshua just asked for a shake yesterday. Or maybe I'll make it for dinner... and breakfast!

we just made some. yay! it was a big hit and now I don't have to worry about veggies for dinner :) I added blueberries so it wouldn't be green and didn't put the celery in b/c I didn't have any. I also forgot to pineapple in my popeyes haste.

I'm going to have to go buy some spinach. I have all the rest of the ingredients. That's one way to get all of your veggies in!

hmmm I like the pre-blend better than the green mix. I suppose if it went into a cup that you can't see through it would be good! We make smoothies nearly every day, maybe I could sneak in one with the spinich :)

Suzanne said...

Mmmm...I gotta try this! Thanks!

I am gonna head to the store tomorrow to make this. It sounds wonderful. Steph

what a perfect name for them. Bear and I love trying new smoothie recipes so I'll have to gather up these ingredients and try it. The spinach/pineapple duo is intriguing to me.

Ahhh! I need to remember your recipe is here. If we made the cut we joined a CSA this year. There were only 50 slots and it was a first come first serve thing. I emailed the night the email was sent out but havent heard back yet. If we are in I will have to make some of this with extra stuff we get. :O)

OMG does it taste good?

LDH said...

Better you showed the pretty colors in the blender first as this healthy drink looks less exciting once blended. Bet the fruits make it tasty!
