I know you're thinking I should just give up the "food" blog and start one just for green smoothies, but what the hey, I'm all for integration...
I've found that for green smoothies, the best way to layer it all up is to put the mushiest, juiciest fruit at the bottom, add some juice (or water), and put the harder veggies or fruit, like carrots, near the middle. After I liquefy it all, I then add my leafy greens.
This one had honeydew melon, cilantro, celery, cucumber, carrots, apple, apple juice, blueberry-pomegranate-veggie juice, bananas, clementines, plain yogurt, frozen marion blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries, wheat germ, and spinach (spinach not shown because I hadn't blitzed it all yet).
And just to show you that I do put other substances besides green smoothies in my bod...
One of my favorite snacks of all times: ants on a log! My mom used to make these for us--just slather some all-natural peanut butter (no sugar or sweeteners) on celery sticks and then top with raisins. Mmmmm, mmmmm, good!
What was your favorite snackage as a kid?
One more question--my soon-to-be-two-year-old wants me to make him a "chocolate milk cake" for his birthday. Any ideas for me?
