I drink green smoothies as part of my breakfast every weekday morning. Today's was this:

1/4 of a pineapple, frozen
1 banana, frozen
1 c. kale
1 c. spinach
1/4 c. 0% Chobani yogurt
1 tbsp. ground flax seed
1/2 c. water
a couple ice cubes

I had a whole grain english muffin too. It takes me a long time to drink the smoothie, so it acts as a mid-morning snack too.

Since I started drinking them I've found my energy levels boost. Plus, I love smoothies. I eat cooked veggies also, and a salad every day for lunch.
I'm back on track!

My smoothie this morning comprised spinach, celery, mini carrots, frozen fruits, milk, ground flax and chia seeds, and hemp protein powder. Looked disgusting but was actually more yummy than I thought it would be - lol.

Sounds nice, it's often the case with smoothies that they look like swamp water.

When we stopped using milk and started using water we found they lost some softness to the taste but adding a few prunes makes a difference, as long as you don't add too many Sad
