I got introduced to juicing (especially vegetable juices and fruits and vegetable blends) through Julia Indichova of the Fertile Heart fame. Ever since then, I have invested in a powerful juicer that can pretty much swallow whole apples, beets and pretty much anything you throw at it and result in a wholesome juice with pulp on the side. My take on juicing and how it helps is a story I will save for another post though. Today, I wanted to share another idea for a wholesome nutritious drink which is called a Smoothie.
The dictionary definition of a smoothie is essentially a thick beverage of fruit pureed in a blender with ice and milk, yogurt or juice. My definition though is slightly different. I make several changes to this basic recipe to make it nutritious and power packed.
Here is a very nicely illustrated picture that helps keep these basics in mind. This one has green leaves incorporated into it and sounds very tempting.
So tell us - will you or did you give this a try? Or do you have a secret nutritious recipe of your own? Please do share - we'd love to hear!
