Rainey DayeonDecember 20, 2012at9:24 pmGreen smoothies!! A couple handfuls of spinach blended till smooth with water, then add a bunch of frozen fruit till it is the right consistency. Sometimes a bit of agave nectar if there is a particularly strong spinach flavor. Maybe a little plain yogurt if I have it.

Donna JohnsononDecember 20, 2012at9:26 pmMy favorite smoothie:

1 c. Crushed ice and water

1 c. Cucumber chunks

1 pear

1/2 avocado

1 T. Nutiva Hi-Fiber Hemp Protein Powder

2 T. Lemon juice

Blend until smooth.

Of course, substitutions for fruits and vegetables are possible. If I use a banana, I sub almond milk for the water for a creamier drink.
