I start every morning with a smoothie. It’s a simple routine that gets me off to a good start. I think I even look forward to it.
I usually gather some things from our little garden. Lately it’s been kale, asparagus, and mustard greens. I generally start with 1 cup of almond milk. Just the plain kind no flavors. Then I add one banana. I will usually pick what ever the most ripe fruit is that I happen to have on hand. My favorite is peaches. Then I add two or three leaves of kale and an asparagus spear or two. The cold portion is either ice cubes or frozen mango chunks. I also add a table spoon of either hemp or chia seeds. I give it a good whirl in the vita mix. Some days the concoction is like heave on earth, like today’s smoothie! But other days, well lets say it’s either a little too green or and little less sweet. Still drinkable, but not quite as good tasting as I had wished for.
I suppose the secret is the ripeness of the fruit.
Here my basic smoothie recipe:
1 cup almond milk
2-3 Kale Leaves
1-2 Asparagus spears
1-Cup ice or frozen fruit
Can you guess? Today was a Way Good Smoothie Day!
