[quote]I still have to ask for your smoothies. Do you use frozen greens or fresh ones? What exactly?
Flare- Fresh greens are best!
Here's a recipe that got me hooked on green smoothies:
-1 handful fresh spinach
-1 banana (this is what helps make the texture creamy)
-2 cups of whatever fruit you like (I suggest mango, pineapple, apple, or pear.)
-Put all in blender and blend until smooth! (For best blending results, chop up the fruit into medium sized pieces before putting in the blender.)
If the taste is too strong, try it with fewer greens. If you like the taste, try more greens next time!
Yes, use raw spinach from the farmer's market.
I started out with this recipe, but now I'll throw tons of things in the blender! Be creative...and be prepared to come up with some things that taste great, and some that don't.
You'll find something you like.
I feel much better eating more dark leafy greens! It's helped my skin, and helped me achieve my goal weight.
