My First Smoothie with Greens

Monday, January 20, 2014

I can't quite call it a green smoothie, can I?

I spent the weekend in North Carolina with my good friend. She recently finished grad school, got a job in her field, broke up with her boyfriend, and moved into her own place. A whole new life! We spent time at Target and Lowe's, looking at things to buy so that she could decorate. While at Target, I noticed that the Nutribullet was on sale -- $99 with a $20 gift card. I bought one.

When I got home today, I went right to the grocery store to buy some ingredients. I am nervous about buying fresh fruit (what they recommend) because I don't want it to go bad, so I bought some frozen fruit where the only ingredient is actually fruit.

The Nutribullet is a larger Magic Bullet, which I own, but leaks oil. I should really throw it away. I am hopeful that I will use this for yummy smoothies! Do you have any favorite recipes? I can taste the spinach in this one, but I think it will take some trial and error before I find the mixtures to be exactly what I like.

This smoothie is my dinner tonight. I had Five Guys for lunch today and am SO FULL still, I figure a little straight nutrition is all I need.

Have a great day, SparkFriends!

    I just finished a 10 - Day Green Smoothie Cleansing. I enjoyed some of the recipes more than others, however I did loss 8 pounds in those 10 days. It was a great way to break my plateau.

    My "I don't have time for lunch" smoothie is one cup of milk, one cup frozen blueberries, one banana.
