Shake it up...... green style!

Hey y'all!

   So today I thought I would share this amazing recipe that my mom and I absolutely love. :)   It is called a green smoothie... sound gross? It actually isn't! You can put whatever ingredients you can think of (as long as you stick to fruits and vegetables)! Greens such as spinach, roman lettuce, and/or kale should be put in at all times because it wouldn't be a green shake with out them ( you can never taste them though, you can only taste the fruit that is put in them.. especially if you put bananas in it)!
    Make sure to also put in a fibrous fruit such as bananas or strawberries because they tie and mix everything together and prevent the shake from clumping up.
    Putting cold water in it makes it more of a drink base and the more you put in, the more watery it will be...    so it is best to put about 3/4 of a cup give or take.
     Put all of the ingredients in a blender, make sure the top lid is on tight and then blend on high until it       looks all blended through.
   It doesn't always come out green either... if you put lots of strawberries and raspberries in it,  it will turn out dark red!

    I have attached a pic of a green smoothie we made( made with spinach,kale,bananas, apples and cold water)

They are so delicious plus nutritious at the same time!


   Peace for now :)

   P.S. This is simply my opinion.
