Green Smoothie Brown

20130715-124025.jpg

Thanks to my friend Catie (of theapproximateyogi.com) who suggested using smoothies as a means to rid one’s refrigerator of excess greens.

I feel like such a brat. Like complaining about my over abundance of nourishing food is comparable to complaining about a new car for super-sweet 16, but I digress.

I had a giant bag of beet greens in the fridge, so here’s what I did:

4 ice cubes, a handful of blueberries, a tbsp of chia seeds, on chopped and very ripe peach, a splash of water, and as many beet greens as I could put in the blender. Blend for a really long time.

It was very beety ( not surprising), but pretty good for something the color of dirt. Next time I may adjust to add sweetness and manage the color, but overall this was a cool and nourishing meal. I drank the whole thing, and I do not believe in eating gross things.

  1. I feel like I’d have to have Mountain Dew in that because…I hate smoothies. I hate smoothies more than I hate most things.

  2. haha, sometimes I have to close my eyes when I drink them, because it tastes soo much better than it looks! my fiance makes fun of the color and refuses to taste -his loss!
