Blender Bev Day 5

The frozen blueberries in my freezer were calling to me today as I made my Day 5 drink.  I am in desperate need to go back to my local CSA and pick up some more greens.  I have been out of Kale for a few days and I am getting low on all of my produce.  This is a great day because this can prove that you can make a drink out of whatever you have in your kitchen at the time.  

I am still amazed at my level of energy considering the overload I am under while my husband is on vacation.  Two business’, kids, house, prepping for Christmas etc.  It is enough to drive you to drink…drink a great healthy nutritious smoothie in just minutes.  I do believe that if I were not incorporating this extra punch of whole food goodness into my body, I would be drained, stressed and just plain grouchy.  I am half way to my destination (10 days of one green drink a day) and it has been smooth flying so far.  I am loving the journey.

Bev #5

  • 3/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 large carrot chopped
  • 1 celery stalk chopped
  • Handful spinach
  • Handful pea shoots
  • Handful sunflower sprouts
  • Few mint leaves
  • Splash of aloe vera
  • Coconut water

Ok, I realize that a few of the items in my drink are unique and may not live in the average household.  So, tomorrow I am deliberately going to purchase what I feel most people may have on hand in their kitchen and reproduce a beautiful beverage.

Note:  When adding the greens to your blender, make sure you are tightly packing it to create the handful or cup or whatever your measurement may be.  It takes quite a few leaves to create a serving so make sure you aren’t just adding a few leaves.

Note 2:  I put a splash of aloe vera in my drinks because I prefer it, but this is optional.  Tomorrow I will omit this as well to keep the drink similar to an average home.
