      Totally just getting into them and I love them so far!!


      day after day sameness

        They waste water....

        Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

          I don't spend any time thinking about green smoothies

            I don't spend any time thinking about green smoothies

             

            I do not like them in a box.

            I do not like them with a fox.

            I do not like green smoothies.

            I do not like them, Sam I Oothie.

              Eww.  Don't use water!

               

              1/2 - 1 cup full fat yogurt - any style you like.

              1 orange -- navel is best.

              1 banana

              1cup frozen or fresh pineapple--canned just doesn't work.

              2-3 loose handfuls of raw spinach.  What little taste the raw stuff has

                   is covered up with the the pineapple.

               

              All above measurements to taste.

               

              Blend with or without ice.

              Enough to share -- or not.

              Drink up!

               

              Not low calorie, not low fat, tastes great.

                Throw some kale in there.

                  Why don't you just eat the kale and spinach?  Why make a smoothie?  Is there an added benefit?  Just curious because I eat either a kale salad or spinach salad everyday for lunch.

                    +1

                    I was skeptical but my wife convinced me to try it. Kale, mint, banana, fruit juice, and a bunch of other crap from the fridge. Does it have magical properties? Who cares! It tastes good and I get a green mustache!

                        Wow! That DOES sound like an unbelievable amount of fun!!!

                          Green smoothies rule!  I throw the following (or some variation) in my vitamix daily:

                           

                          Almond milk

                          1 x Banana

                          2 x carrots

                          2 x celery

                          1 x apple or pear

                          handful of frozen berries

                          Scoop of plant based protien powder

                          handful of kale

                           

                          I use all organic fruits and veggies.  Yum!

                            I don't think there's an added benefit except that in the smoothie I actually eat the kale Smile

                            First or last...it's the same finish line

                              Agreed. Until I got the Nutribullet, I would never be eating this much spinah and kale as I do now.  I use to juice with it, but I didn't like that I was going through so much produce for such little amount of juice.

                                Yeah, I tend to eat a lot more kale (and leafy greens in general) in smoothies than in salads - I have a smoothie every day, but don't necessarily have a salad every day.  Also, kale and other bitter greens can be hard on somefolks digestive system, but blending seems to help (something about breaking the kale down - pre-digesting)....
