I’m not a big podcast listener except for my absolute favorite Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey. Recently she had RadioAmy on and I loved it. She talked about her mom dying so of course I was all ears. I mean, she was speaking my death language.
They also talked about other different things including Amy’s favorite smoothie…The Glowing Green Smoothie. I have made many a smoothies for the Kelley kids, but I have never partaken myself…minus the one time I tasted a friends smoothie in an airport. I’m kind of weird about fruit and dairy blended together…I don’t even like fruit ice-cream. I was intrigued enough about The Glowing Green Smoothie to at least check it out and turns out there’s no milk, but water. I can get behind some water and decided to give it a shot.
Since I had never had a smoothie before I decided to break the recipe down into an individual serving just in case I didn’t like it.
Here’s how mine went:
Big handful of spinach chopped
2 big romaine leaves chopped
1/2 cup water
1/3 of a pear chopped
1/3 of an apple chopped
1 large celery stalk chopped
1/4 of a lemon wedge juice
I pour mine over ice. And that’s it.
I left out the banana because I don’t like bananas.
Once I decided I shockingly really liked this smoothie I started pre bagging my ingredients. I go ahead and chop up all the ingredients and bag them so all I have to do is pull them out and dump them in my blender. One pear, one apple and one lemon give me 3 smoothies. And I just have a small ninja blender and it totally works.
I type before you a reformed non-smoothie drinker. I’ve seen the light and have been having this everyday…obviously we have quite the straw collection. It’s no homemade chocolate chip cookie, but I really love how it makes me feel. Give it a shot…Josh Kelley says it tastes like salad
And we leave tomorrow morning bright and early for the airport. We will not have internet access so I will be MIA until June 8th. Would totally appreciate your prayers as we travel. I will miss you guys and cannot wait to share about our trip! And check back because you know there’s sure to be a big Timbali Crafts giveaway when I get home. Holla!
