Super crazy good for you smoothies? Sign me up!
Like I said on Monday, I’m all about the super foods like kale. Yup, I’m probably eating so much kale that my skin is going to turn a slight shade of green, but whatever, at least I’m getting my daily intake of fruits and veggies. No bid deal. Right?
So by now I think you all know that I’m crazy into juicing. I just love it. I feel great. I see everything more clearly. And I mean that in a literal sense, not some metaphor or anything. Like, I literally wake up in the morning and everything is clear. It takes me about .02 seconds to get out of bed and I’m immediately awake. There’s no lolly-gagging around for me. I’m up and I’m ready to go! And it’s seriously all because of my daily green juice! I like drinking my greens. It’s the way to go.
I decided to mix things up a bit and make myself a green smoothie for lunch this week. Holy yum. It was epic. Get this… cucumbers + kale + pineapple + raspberries. Yup that’s it. Add a touch of ice and a little bit of water to get things moving around in the blender and then you’re ready to take on the rest of the day. Throw in a cute straw when you’re drinking it too. It makes it taste even better. Well, maybe not. But at least you look good while you’re drinking it!
Cucumber Pineapple Smoothies are quickly becoming my go-to when I’m in a hurry. They are filling and I’m getting tons of my daily fruit and vegetables in one drink! And… you don’t even need a juicer for this recipe! Just a good blender. And a fancy straw. Clearly.
