I'm on a new health kick with my bestie Stephanie, who writes this awesome blog called Food Gossip. It's based on this book called Eat To Live where you embark on a plant-based diet for six weeks and slowly introduce meat and dairy back into your diet if you choose to.
This morning, I made a recipe from his book called Eat Your Greens Fruit Smoothie. I blended almond milk, pomegranate juice, a banana, spinach, frozen blueberries and ground flaxseed. Halfway through the blended, I notice the smoothie was turning a brownish color and I thought YUCK! This looks like dirt! The color never changed once the smoothie was finished but I decided to take the plunge and try not to focus on that. My first sip was yummy! Here's the recipe:
Eat Your Greens Fruit Smoothie
5 ounces baby spinach
1 cup frozen blueberries (or any berries)
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or soy/hemp)
1/2 cup pomegranate juice (or other unsweetened fruit juice)
1 tbsp ground flaxseeds (optional)
Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
