This will be a running smoothie journal
I'll routinely post photos and recipes (rough, except by specific request/comment) and my brief comment on the taste. So, check back for more veggie porn.
Smoothies have become my favorite way to get many servings of fruits, vegetables, lean protein (whey protein), and healthy fats. I've been amazed at how much vegetables you can "sneak in" before it doesn't taste like something fun. Now, I've been drinking smoothies for a few months now, at the same time avoiding sweets, soda (pop), so my taste has evolved not to like "sweet" so much.
Vegetables that I've found you can sneak in a substantial serving of, without much taste (especially if there's a cup of berries and/or a splash of cranberry juice): broccoli, spinach, kale, carrots
Vegetables that you can pretty easily taste (not that it's bad, but not always what you want): sprouts, celery
|Pea shoots (small handful), mint leaves, carrots (handful), celery (1 stalk), pineapple (1/2 cup), kefir (4 oz), cranberry juice (4 oz)|
[Delicious, love the mint-leaves]
