My Version of the "Green Drink"

It seems like "Green Drinks" are everywhere these days!  People are claiming they can even heal cancer!  Well, I'm not so sure about that, but I do agree we all need more greens in our diet! A green drink is a easy way to get greens in our diet without eating salads for every meal.  This week I tried making the boys and I a special smoothie every morning.  Our favorite was this little concoction!  It's green without the 'green' taste!  It tastes more like pineapple juice but a little less tart!

3/4 cup pineapple, diced
2 cups spinach, loosely packed
1/4 green pear, diced
1 tablespoon flax seed oil
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1 cup ice cubes

Method

1)  Blend all together and drink immediately!

  1. This is seriously so yummy that my kids constantly beg for it! Tiffany made this for me while I was visiting her, and I have been making it ever since.

    Once I was making it and noticed the spinach I was going to use had gone bad, so I threw in some carrots instead, and it became an orange smoothie, also very good.

    Tiffany, you are a genius!
