Strawberry Greeeeeeeenn Smoothie


We do them a lot around here.

Frequently in fact.

I like to stuff them with kale or spinach and blend the life out of it so that a certain 2 year old won't be able to totally pick apart what's in it. It's a great way to start your morning OR the afternoon as a snack.. and it's tasty...really-even with the green leaves in it.

Freshly grated ginger and carrot juice are also nice additions if you're up to it, otherwise, this is our everyday concoction with some occasions calling for other additions that I just mentioned. Carrot juice and ginger are good when you minus the strawberries and UP the orange flavoring.

I think I need one right now. Ciao!

I think I'm going to have to get more smoothies going on at my house.
