Smoothie

This is my favorite way to start the day.  This has also been my staple every day from the beginning (July 1, 2012) and I never get sick of it.  It gives me so much energy and sustains me clear until lunch (usually) unless I do some extraordinary amount of exercise in the AM.   The recipe that we use, has been altered from the one Dr. Fuhrman gives in his book.  We use a WHOLE lot more fruit.  I know that we need to tone that down a little, but it was a good way to get started.  So, here ya go…

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate juice
  • 5 ounces spinach
  • 2 cups frozen mango/pineapple mix
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 banan
  • 2 Tlbs. ground flax seed

Mix this all together and enjoy!  This makes enough for 2

Here is my plug for my WONDERFUL blender.  My husband searched high and low for a top quality blender.  He researched many types.  His sisters Priscilla and Rebecca both claimed the Blendtec to be superior.  They both have been making green smoothies for quite some time.  We were intrigued.  It wasn’t until our recent trip to San Diego, when we visited Elizabeth, that we were sold on the Blendtec.  Steve quickly bought one.  That is one big reason we decided to begin our diet and stay with it.  It works like a charm.
