All Things Green

Green Smoothie

For the last few months I have been back on my green smoothie kick. I have been having one for breakfast almost every day. I have it down to a science now. I started adding the chia seeds and the nut butter for some protein and staying power.

Green Smoothie

Here is my general recipe:
Fill blender a little more than halfway with greens (spinach, kale, chard, or even a salad mix)
1 banana
2 tbsp of nut butter
a sprinkle of chia seeds
1-2 cups frozen fruit
1 cup almond milk
1 cup water

Makes 2 servings

I also wanted to show a few shots of the garden so far. Here is some lettuce that my husband planted.


Broccoli and brussel sprouts, which REALLY need to be weeded.

Some basil sprouting up.

A little bit of cilantro too.

Just to add a little bit of color. Here is some wild columbine.

I took all of these shots yesterday so as you can tell everything survived all the rain. I can't believe that nothing was washed away.

So glad that your garden survived! I haven't planted yet...I'm just waiting to see if we get a frost. Usually it is safe after Mother's Day.

You really are the GREENest Mama I know! I'm gonna have to try your smoothies...I gotta get over my "veggies can't be consumed in the morning" idea! :-)

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I remembered that you use to blog about smoothies and I was actually thinking about them the other day.

I will be making this one.

I also need to put my herbs in the ground. I bought some blueberries this year, but I'm told they won't bloom until next year. I remember how pretty your were last year.
