Is It Easy Bein’ Green? Let’s Find Out By Trying Green Smoothies.
DIY smoothies and juices are quite the rage these days, and I’m listening.
It’s a relatively simple, supposedly delicious way to get vital nutrients and fiber from fruits and veggies into your bag of bones. I need that — I eat less of the good stuff than I should. You also hear about the way drinking freshly juiced or blended produce makes you feel. Our site director, Becky, said she felt “lighter, healthier, and more energetic than ever” after her 40 days of morning green smoothies.
We’ve made fruit smoothies at home. They’re good, but I’m not much of a fruit eater. Give me savory over sweet every time. (My family, however, loves them, so if you’re looking to find new ways to get fruit into your kids, give fruit smoothies a try. They are incredibly easy to make with frozen produce.)
Green smoothies are next on my to-try list. Wanna’ join me? I have a few tools to help us get started…
Check Out These Smoothie Infographics
These popped into my inbox just this week. The first walks you through a basic green smoothie recipe (our first perhaps?).
The second pic is more fruit-focused, but I like they way it gives you a smorgasbord of options for how you craft your beverage.

Disclaimer: My site editor, Becky Striepe, did write this handy little eBook. But I’d be a dork if I failed to bring it to your attention. I just snagged it and can’t wait to start trying the myriad of recipes and tips she provides. For a sneak peak, check out a review and three of her green recipes.
Who Loves Kermit?
I do! (The fact that I own a life-size Kermit replica is a dead giveaway.) He claims it’s not easy bein’ green. We shall see, my little froggy friend.
I’ll come back and post comments as I work my way through a few recipes. If you want to join me, jump on in, and let us know how it goes!
