Day 20 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Sweet Leafy Green Smoothie

 Looks like the Coconut Green Smoothies just weren’t all I had hoped they would be… Today’s smoothie was more a banana smoothie with a hint of lime.  I only used banana and even added extra coconut in hopes that it would affect the flavor, but no luck.  I did notice that by freezing the coconut I did not have the chunks like I had encountered with the two previous green smoothies here and here  — so that was nice.

1 Lime, Peeled or Juices*optional
1 inch piece of ginger* optional

Instructions: Wash all your produce. Chop and put into blender with a small amount of liquid to start. Add more as needed until you reach your desired consistency.

Day 19 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Peachy Green Smoothie

Bummed again about today’s green smoothie :(.   I was really looking forward to a coconut smoothie — something tropical to remind me of a beach somewhere and not these freezing temperatures we have been experiencing lately …  Instead it was an overabundance of lime with chunks of coconut?  Which is strange since I only put in 1/2 a lime and used some majorly sweet Red Haven Peaches that I froze last summer.   These are the yummiest, sweetest, juiciest peaches in the world! I can’t wait for summer…
