Are you doing Green Smooties?
Posted Friday, April 20, 2012 at 11:38 AM

Are you incorporating some green smoothies in your day during the Kickstart?

I have been doing them for Breakfast and sometime for Lunch.

How about you?

spirutein is green. I make one occasionally. Is it vegan?

I go through phases with green smoothies. I drink them every day for awhile, then I get tired of them. I can't think of a better way to get tons of good green veggies in my diet quickly and easily.

I do not know the spirutein brand

For me a green smoothie is made with fresh vegetables/fruits mix with either Green Tea or a Plant base milk

A great way to had nutrients and fiber to your daily diet

no, I don't do green smoothies but I do like fruity smoothies (banana berry for example). And sometimes a spoonful of raw cocoa powder added to the mix takes care of any chocolate cravings without adding lots of sugar or other stuff to the day.

Trying different green smoothies to discover one I like. I juice a lot because it tastes "clean" to me.

I've gotten really into green smoothies lately, and they can be the perfect snack when you make a big batch. I usually put:
-plant milk or water
-frozen berries
-a banana
-kale or spinach
-a tablespoon of flax meal or chia seed
-occasionally a teaspoon of almond butter

An amazingly refreshing one I made the other day is:
-one whole lemon
-two oranges
-grated ginger
-water
-kale
-chia seed

I'd love to hear any other green smoothie ideas. I think it's a great way to incorporate those greens in to your day.

I have had times in the past when I drank green smoothies but, to be honest, I got really turned off by them when my parents convinced me to go with them for a week to a raw food retreat a few years ago. I'm very picky about temperature and texture of food and like my smoothies to be ice cold and creamy. The green smoothies they made us drink (well, didn't actually make us, but let's say it was either that or nothing for breakfast!) were lukewarm and grainy Crying or Very sad .

I honestly prefer to munch on my greens or cook them.
