The Not Green Smoothie

February 21, 2008 at 10:03 pm 9 comments

I saw this idea somewhere on line, and I had to try it out. It seemed way too simple! I peeled 3 juicy oranges, added 3-4 ice cubes, threw them in the blender and blended (it said not to add water, but I didn’t think it would work so I added a little). It was delicious! I actually think it would have been perfect without the water…the juice from the oranges would be enough. Matt, Bella, and I shared this glass.I did a green version of this for Matt this morning…

2 frozen bananas
1 orange, peeled
Handful of spinach
2 cups water

It was soooo good. Like a tropical dream.

    LOL, sub soy milk for the water in your green version, and you’ve got my standard morning smoothie. Goodness, but I’m boring.

    And how did you fit 304 ice cubes in your blender?? I’m impressed. πŸ™‚

    Could 304 ice cubes actually fit in a blender???

    I’m thinking you meant 3-4 ice cubes…right?

    I like this better than juicing because you get the whole fruit including the fiber…and it is more filling, saving money too in the long run I’d think.

    I tried the green version with my family today, since we got a new blender. So good! Even my oldest son, who’s not quite “on board” with all the changes we’ve made the past few years, said it wasn’t bad. πŸ™‚

    This is how they make “orange juice” in India. I have a glass every chance I get here, since it’s so unbelievably yummy! So much better than the stuff that comes from a carton.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

β€œFinish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
