Day Seven: Green Smoothies

Day Seven's task:

"Make a green smoothie for breakfast, lunch, or a snack today. Commit to having a green smoothie every day for the next seven days. It will become a habit you won't ever want to give up!"

Green smoothie... never had one. I went to HEB and got some frozen fruit (blueberries and strawberries) and a bag of ice - because, yeah, I'm that one person in the world who doesn't have an ice maker or even ice trays in her freezer.

I have a little blender that is actually made for smoothies - the blender container is measured in ounces and the lid has a slid-back tab so you can drink straight from the blender cup. Neat, huh?

Sarah did say that some blenders can't take blending frozen stuff, so I found a way around that: I put the fruit in plastic containers and leave them in the fridge for the next day. By the time I need to use it, it's cold but not frozen. Problem solved.

My smoothie of the day was a strawberry-blueberry-spinach combo. Yum. I'm going to put a bit less spinach in next time, though, because I could taste it.


  1. I really need to make myself one. I've heard about green smoothies but I thought they'd be with broccolis and other green veggies and it didn't seem tasty to me :D. But if you say strawberries-bluberries-spinach which I absolutely love that means it's yum!

    I'll write a post about mine too;)

  2. Hi ... i have challenged myself to drink this smoothie for a week, but then I continued day after day. I felt so full afterward n d good impact one of them is getting skin clearer alhamdulillah. This drink is healthy n very tasty. Just be creative to put n mix into d blender.
