Blender Bev Day 4

I apologize for publishing this blog post one day late.  I was on the road for my teenage son’s out-of-town basketball game.  I did, however, throw together a quick drink for the road that morning.  I am so glad these are so quick, easy and portable because my stomach thanked me as it became many hours later before I could eat.  I had some nuts and my drink for breakfast and it sustained me incredibly well.  Fortunately I did not feel ravenous or irrational about what to eat as lunchtime came more like afternoonish.

For this drink, I wanted to try coconut water.  Oddly, the coconut water gave the drink a slight sweetness.  I have used coconut water in the past and did not notice this subtle sweet taste.  I am quite confident that this modification is noticeable because for three days I used filtered water, I am sensitive to sweetness and during this 10 day run my taste buds are on heightened alert.  The drink tasted very good, but I sit on the fence whether or not I liked the added sweetness.  I will probably try it again one more day to be sure.

Bev #4

  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Pear
  • A few fresh mint leaves
  • 1 1/2 handfuls of spinach
  • Big handful of pea shoots
  • Splash of aloe vera
  • Coconut water

I ran out of Kale.  So I just added more spinach and pea shoots to compensate.  I had sunflower sprouts, but because they have a little stronger taste I opted out for today.  I simply forgot carrot and it still tasted good.

I hope this is encouraging you all to experiment at home with your own food and blender.
