My sweet little baby boy, Henry is now 2 weeks old. I hope you will excuse my lack of posts in the recents months! Pregnancy makes me want to just curl up and sleep- instead of what I usually feel like doing- cooking.
The combination of hot summer weather and my body working to repair and recover, has made me want to drink cold green smoothies all day long. (Thanks to my mom for making me an enormous green smoothie everyday the first week.)
This is the recipe I have been loving today. I have made this smoothie 3 days in a row! Excuse me for not having a picture (my camera is full of pictures of my baby), but it makes a beautiful purple smoothie.
- 1 banana
- 1 pear
- 1/3-1/2 bunch of lacinato kale (dinasour kale)
- 1 cup baby spinach leaves
- 1- 2 tsp flaxseeds
- 1/3 cup cold water
- 1/2 cup frozen cherries
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup crushed ice
I am not sure if these are the exact measurements, so taste and adjust if you need. Enjoy!
