Honestly, I can’t remember what day of the 30 day Wholefood Simply smoothie challenge we’re on but I’m loving it! A lot of ‘firsts’ for me: last week I smoothied vegetables that weren’t leafy greens (beet and celery) in one of my new favorite recipes ‘Make it Pink‘; today I made a smoothie with spirulina that I actually liked and I added ginger to a smoothie for the first time too. How very exciting?!
I haven’t been able to go to the market this week so there were slim pickings in the fridge this morning, and what I did have was very ‘ripe’ to say the least. Luckily ‘ripe’ doesn’t turn me off fruit these days – it’s amazing how going high-raw changed my tastes; I used to be an ‘eat it green and hard’ kind of girl now I embrace the soft, nutrient-richness of ripe :)
Anyhoo, I digress. I had good intentions to make Bianca’s ‘Rise and Shine‘ smoothie but didn’t have everything I needed – I was close though! So while you should definitely check out her recipe (I will make it properly soon), this is also a good variation in its own right.
Spirulina is amazing… I’m so excited to have a way to consume it that’s actually enjoyable now! How do you have yours??
