Blender Goodness

My quest for healthy eating is continuing.  Hopefully, my children will eventually pick up on it and join me.  I'm currently down 10 pounds since the beginning of the year and while I have stalled a bit, I've maintained, which I'm pleased with.  Maintenance is my plan through the Easter holiday break and then I'll aim for a few more pre-summer pounds to disappear. 

Beefing up on the fresh fruits and veggies has been key for me.  I stumbled upon a interesting smoothie recipe on Pinterest and before I knew it, I'd started a new board, Blender Goodness, with several recipes I want to try.  I had most of the ingredients for this one:


So I whipped one up this afternoon.  I didn't have kale on hand so my version was:
1 cup fresh spinach, 1 banana, 1 pear, 1 cup orange juice and 1 cup of ice.  Blend and enjoy.  Believe it or not you can't taste the spinach, it was so yummy and refreshing!  Four servings of fruits and vegetables in one delicious drink!  Look how pretty it is too:
Peace be with you,

Congrats on the weight loss! I love spinach in my smoothies! I like to use fresh carrot juice from my juicer instead of orange juice to get some extra vitamins.
