Sometimes with all these social media outlets, its hard to remember what it was like when you couldn't reach one person in 10 different ways. I could do with out it all I think. All except for Pinterest. I really don't know what I did before it! I catch myself looking at it if I just have a few seconds while I'm waiting in line somewhere, or during the commercials, or if I can't sleep at night. Yikes.
I have being seeing all over the place these "green monster smoothies." I pinned a few, but I wasn't too sure. Seems to me like if half the ingredients are spinach, it might in fact, taste like spinach. Not so my friends! Lucky for me I had an ancient bag of frozen pineapple/mango bits hanging out in the depths of the freezer. There are a million links out there and a ton of recipes, but I'll just tell you how I threw it together because I am too lazy to go find one. You folks are privileged to be getting a blog post these days. I have a bit on my plate what with the reception coming up.
The first one I made, I just put a few leaves in. MAYBE a handful. I've progressed now, after the initial fear. The one I made pre-work out (that's right, I worked out today too) today I filled half my blender up with spinach, little stems and all. I also added maybe 1/2 to 3/4 cup frozen fruit, a little container of lime activa yogurt, and some water to blend it all up. Oh and don't forget a squirt or two of honey. mmmmm.
In the back of the picture you can see a little peek of the glorious cake stands we have been making for the reception. Just hold on to your horses, the reception is going to be so beautiful!
