I try to have a smoothie for breakfast a couple mornings a week. This week was hard as it went and got chilly in the mornings again but today was a bit warmer. Also I am really tired as the teen and I watched the Bruins game 3 last night! However this post is about food not hockey.
I love smoothies. My wife started me trying them a few weeks back. She found she hated them but I think they are great. The only thing I don't like about them is the often icky color that I get. For instance, I have a combo of banana, water, protien powder, arugula and frozen blueberries. It is delicious but the color? Not purple, not green, sort of a weird brownish color. It is definately something I don't look at while I drink. I did get some pretty ones if I put in a lot of strawberries, but most other combos leave me with sickly green or muddy brown.
Today, I got Dr. Seuss green and I love it. Thankfully it also tastes good. I increased the amount of greens and I used frozen peaches for those of you dying to drink something bright green in the mornings! I feel energy seeping back into my bones.
