I borrowed my friend Jenn’s Blender and made my first Green Smoothie on Sunday.
I was pleasantly surprised. I really was worried it would be disgusting. But it was actually tasty. Thing 2 and Thing 3 tasted it, but didn’t like the seeds. (I used Rasberry’s) Thing 1 loved it, I did too.
My goal is to drink one every day for a week and then maybe I will get a good blender if I want to keep it up. (I have the cheap blender we got as a wedding present, it is not strong enough to blend smoothies!)
Then Monday night after teaching Hypnobabies, I had a Green Smoothie instead of ice cream. Sometimes my throat is sore after teaching for 3 hours and ice cream soothes it. Well my Green Smoothie soothed it just as well! Healthier too.
Thing 1 got the Flu on Tuesday and on Wednesday when he was ready to eat again, he asked, “Can I have some of that Smoothie Stuff?”
So I ran down and made him some. He has had 2 glasses so far today.
He also had a rootbeer float. Then accused me of putting medicine in it. He saw pink stuff. I explained we only had Neopolitan Ice Cream and some strawberry got mixed with the vanilla!
Today he requested some more smoothie
Apparantly he is more aware today.“This is GREEN!” He said.
I replied, “It was green yesterday too.”
“It was? Are there Strawberries in it?”
“Yes.” I reassured him.
“Why is it green?”
“Do you really want to know?” I questioned.
He shook his head No and happily drank all of the smoothie.
I have had one every day and am enjoying it!
