This finished product actually turned brown. not so appealing, however it tasted pretty good. Some of the kids drank a small bit. I will say that it is very filling and energizing to start your day this way. I have made smoothies before, but I am really new to green ones. Without the addition of the fruit there would have only been enough smoothie for one. So it did show that you can really pack in high nutrients this way, obtaining more quality nutrition, there is no way that I could have eaten that entire salad, it was definitely salad for 2.

Going Green..... In The Blender That Is!
Last night while Denise and I were eating dinner (at the B&B) we were talking about green smoothies and why we are making them. Some people just say that they would rather just eat their salad. However, it seems by making your greens into a smoothie it seems that you would be able to pack more nutrition into your daily intake. We were also wondering how far would the bowl of salad go in the blender. I have a crummy blender, so we weren't sure that it would all blend up; however, below is the results. First we put in, flax, spinach, cucumber, tomatoes, carrot, and sugar snap peas. This is what it looked like while it was blending. Then added a lot of fruits to it to make it sweeter without adding extra sugars. So we added, an apple, mango, strawberries, and blueberries.
