The Joy of Smoothies

Thursday, June 06, 2013

What's so great about smoothies? My favorite thing about smoothies is that they're sweet, they contain great vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants! I knew before that I love blueberries! I bought a personal blender, some frozen fruit, some yogurt, and some protein shakes. I've found that I absolutely LOVE smoothies. I realize that most of you have already discovered the amazing world of swirled fruit and yogurts. But I'm a little behind...I have challenged myself to try something new every few days. So this smoothie thing is really a great thing for me (and, by default, my family!).

I was going to purchase some spinach tomorrow to put into my smoothies this coming week. That was, until I read a spark article (a "sparticle"?) at

http://www.sparkpeople.com/b
log/blog.asp?post=the_heal
thiest_leafy_greenand_how_
to_eat_it

that compared all the leafy greens to each other. It turns out that the most outstanding, vitamin-packed leafy green is kale! So, I'm going to give it a try. If the article is off and I can taste the "green", I'll give the spinach a try. I'll report back to let you know how it goes!

Spark on, Everyone!

    Oh yeah... and I ALWAYS put in a serving of wheat germ. I like the extra fiber, protein, and extra texture it gives to the smoothie.

  I love smoothies for the same reason. I usually put fresh fruit, unsweetend almond milk and crushed ice with artificial sweetner. This keeps it low cal.
I have yet to try the green stuff.
