I love smoothies. I could drink one for every meal. I wish I could drink one to start each and every morning to start my day off. Unfortunately, though, I leave the house at 6:30 in the morning while everyone’s sleeping, and I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t appreciate the very noisy sound of the blender+ice to wake them from their slumber. So instead, I have a small smoothie as an after work and school snack with my son many afternoons.

And then there’s Saturdays. My favorite day of the week. Saturdays are my day. My son is with his dad, and the wife is at work, so I have free reign of the entire day. It’s usually full of yoga, blogging, reading, watching food documentaries and Cupcake Wars, and of course eating the greenest of greenest food possible. My family does a great job at putting up with my meatless meals, and I do my best to make them as family-friendly as possible, but I know that on Saturdays, I don’t have to cater to anyone but myself.

So what did I make myself this Saturday? I thought of everything green I could to put in this smoothie. If my green grapes hadn’t rang up for eleven dollars, they would have been thrown in the mix (so feel free if you’re so financially inclined – it just wasn’t happenin’ for this budget). Veggies, fruit, and leafy greens. It all got thrown in the mix without a second thought. I knew it would be delicious.

You should have seen me in my excitement. I was starving after yoga and a quick stop for the produce, so when I got home, it was frantic. I took my shoes off, but the scarf and coat remained on. There was no time to bother with coat removal. Prepped the fruit, hurried and photographed it. Blended super quickly, photographed as fast as I could, coat still on.

Finally when that last shot was taken, I threw a straw in the smoothie, took of my coat and scarf, and settled in for my deliciously healthy treat. Seriously, guys. Creamy, sweet, and fresh. You drink a smoothie like this and just feel the vitamins radiating through your body. So clean and tasty.

And for the record, the Mrs tried this out the following morning and loved it. So it’s not just for the super green and crunchy granola folk like myself. It’s perfect for your spouses and your kids as well. (Just don’t tell them what’s in it!)

    *Sigh* I fear my little smoothie maker will not be able to handle these ingredients. I may have to steal my roommates' blender and give it a shot this weekend. 🙂

    This looks super healthy and delicious! I’ve been eating on-the-go quite a bit lately, and this smoothie is a great way to keep myself well nourished. Thank you so much for sharing and thank you for stopping by my blog. I just read your eating disorder journey, and boy I could relate. I starved and binged for several years and eventually I dropped down to 85 pounds. My desire to become a mother motivated me to overcome my ED and I’m now healthier than I’ve ever been. I’m currently on the road to becoming a Registered Dietitian as well ;). I’m so glad we connected, and I look forward to following 😉

    Hi,

    I’m just starting out at the gym and have been really trying to clear my house of junk food and unhealthy food rather than i do indulge in junk food now and then … ssshhhhhh … So i think this recipe will be perfect for post work out meals, i was wondering if this could all be made and then put into individual baggies and then set in the freezer? I’m always on the go and would really like to be able to just throw it in the blender. Do you think that’s something i could do and do you think maybe i should let the ingredients thaw out before blending?

      Great job on getting healthy and taking charge! As far as prepping these, I’d pre-portion out all the ingredients in individual freezer baggies and then blend them all when you’re ready. If you have a quality blender, you shouldn’t have to thaw anything, but you may need to add a little liquid (water or almond milk) to get things moving better.
