I have always been partial to “liquid” meals. Even as a kid, I liked to toss a bunch of fruit, yogurt, juice and ice into a blender at any time of day. I suspect it was because I could sip a smoothie and read at the same time. Using a knife and fork meant that I had to put down my book.

So, I’m quite intrigued by the Green Smoothie Challenge I stumbled across while I was wondering around on the net. The spinach (leafy greens) base sounds very interesting. I know it sounds disgusting but Green Woman Comes Knocking's blog entry is what caught my attention in the first place. She makes Green Monsters sound quite yummy!

I know this isn't particularly related to knitting but healthy people can knit more so I thought it was completely appropriate. I think I will stop off at the grocery store tonight and whirl up a big glass of green! Then, energetically knit on my Spring Fling.

Verna, thanks for such a wonderful recipe. The importance of having something like this for those in hospice care is so important. My sister was in hospice until her passing. You people are angels.

Green smoothies never sounded tasty, but as a hospice dietitian I'm always working on developing new recipes for patients. I kept reading so many good things about Green Smoothies, I finally decided I had to try this. Wow - I was absolutely amazed at how incredibly delicious they are! The greens just tone down the sweetness of the fruit; it doesn't taste like veggies.
I made up my own recipe which even my husband and children like.

Peggy, is that because you are a vegetarian? or some other reason?

I can drink something green, as long as it's not green because it has frog in it, LOL!

Kelley, thanks for fixing the link to Green Woman Comes Knocking. She had a really cute duo there. Boy, did they look familiar. Seriously!!!

OK that does sound interesting. I'm gamed to try anything once. I do like smoothies just never had a green one. I couldn't link to the "Green Woman Comes Knocking's blog entry" either. Knitting blogs don't have to be all about knitting all the time but like the way you tied it in with knitting.

Ok, I am NO vegetarian. Cannot do that; however, I do love my veggies, and have been eating more salads and fresh vegetables and fruits lately. I was able to open the link to the Green Smoothie Challenge, and the smoothies described sound delicious! Love adding the herbs - I do love cilantro! I will definitely try one of these, and I'll let you know what I think of it. Thanks for the information. ♥s
