This mornings booster contained spinach, a whole lottta mint freshly picked, some papaya, melon, pineapple, banana and date paste. I also added some pollen and flax oil.
When curly tops looked at it she didn’t want any, and asked for a pink smoothie. I suggested she have a taste of it knowing she would get past the color and enjoy it. And that’s exactly what happened. It was super sweet- too sweet for me in fact but densely packed with goodness.
Had an early morning start today, so I needed to get going early.
I soaked my greens the minute I woke up and hit the shower, by then the greens had been well soaked and ready for the blender.
I chucked in an orange, 2 bananas becoming over ripe, an apple and a mango
Then i added my greens, I had some spinach, beet leaves and coriander.
whizzed it up with flax seed oil and bee pollen
and I was ready to go
I made extra for me to take with coz I tend to feel hungry quickly, packed oats and fruit for curly tops, she doesn’t always fancy the greens in the smoothie and hubby doesn’t like the taste of banana- so more for me! At least that’s what I had thought.
Grrrr, curly tops helped herself to my one bottle, and her dad to the other. So I was left to have sips here and there. I could have packed more had I known but so thrilled that they chose and wanted to have mine.
Less for me but the smoothie fever seems to be catching on
When my husband first saw this he was grossed out, I’m sure like many of you. I would be too. Although I must add that it definitely tastes far better than it looks. And yes it be made to actually taste pleasant.
So I urged my hubby just to taste it. One small sip and if he doesn’t like it, he doesn’t have to have more. And he did!! From making disgusted faces at the sight of it he started asking me to make more. And since then we have been making smoothies every morning, and he even takes a bottle with him to work as part of his “detox”.
While curly tops is still not willing to try, understanding her preferences I made her a papaya smoothie this morning with coconut water, flax seed oil and bee pollen. She loved it! And I am thrilled that all those nutrients got into her system to kick start her day too.
Go on, try it. Dare yourself and you wont be sorry
