The Not So Green, Green Smoothie


I'm at a loss for words tonight. I'm not quite sure why. Maybe because I'm blogging at 1 am. I'm trying my best to equate my delicious smoothie friend here to any aspect of my life right now. Here's an inside look at my brain:

A smoothie is tasty and cold.... It's cold outside. Ugh, gross. Terrible. It's like talking about the weather when you are trapped in the elevator with strangers. And anyone from anywhere in the world knows LA can't really be that cold and hates us for evening mentioning the slightest drop in temperature. {ahem, Golden Globers, ahem}

Ahem... hmmm....everyone is sick, smoothies are a tasty drink to have when you are sick. Are they? Have I ever had a smoothie when I'm sick? It would be lovely, I'm sure. I should totally have a smoothie next time I'm sick. I should totally have a smoothie right now...

::CRICKETS. CRICKETS. Eyes closing. Sleep is eminent:: I like smoothies when I sleep. I would watch a show called I Dream of Smoothies. ::Eyes fully closed, actually dreaming of smoothies. Smoothies start to attack me in my sleep.:: AGH! I'm up!

...I'm hungry. If I drink a smoothie at 1am and no one sees me or hears me, did I really drink a smoothie at all?

... uhhh

So... that's where I'm at. This isn't to say that this smoothie isn't amazingly scrumptious and refreshing in every way. Because, in fact - it is. I'm way into this smoothie. It just seems my moving van has rolled up on the block where all the writers never want to live. (Does that analogy make sense? I'll tell you what, this late at night it SURE DOES! But I have a feeling I might think differently when I wake up.)

Why don't we just cut to the delicious chase and get down to this thing.




INGREDIENTS: {for 2 large smoothies}

  • a hearty 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peach slices
  • 1 1/2 cups of pineapple, orange juice (I used Tangerine, Pineapple, Orange Juice by Cuties)
  • 2 cups spinach




Throw your ingredients in a blender. Blend her on up until smoothie-tastic. Drink it up!

It's a great way to get some fruits and veggies into your day. Incredibly light with a tropical twist.
