I don’t know why I haven’t tried this before, but I’ve been throwing my usual “green lemonade” ingredients into my smoothies this week, rather than juicing them. I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the texture, but after blending together an assortment of kale, spinach, cucumber, lemon, apple and banana, I was pleasantly surprised! In fact, it wasn’t that far off from my usual green juices– just with a little extra texture from the fiber.
This makes a HUGE batch, too. I’ve been sipping on over 42 ounces of smoothie throughout the morning.
Lunch on this particular day was a leafy green salad, topped with ripe avocado slices, raw red pepper and honey balsamic dressing.
Followed by a large bowl of sweet potato ginger pudding!
Large leafy green salad topped with raw goat feta, cherry tomatoes and honey balsamic dressing.
Followed by two bowls of homemade Mexican Chicken Soup! This was an experiment gone very well– it’s like Chicken Tortilla soup, without the tortillas! Austin’s already requested that I make it again.
