|Frozen pineapple, a banana, a Ya pear, an orange, and spinach, blended with water. This made about a litre of smoothie, and I drank the whole thing for breakfast by myself. That was a bad idea - I was so full.|
Green smoothies are especially good, since they mix some veggies in with the fruit. Hilary Greenleaf has released a book on the topic - The Green Smoothie Diet: Going Green Never Tasted So Good and she's given me five e-copies to give away to you, readers. The book has info on trying green smoothies for the first time, using green smoothies to detox, and has recipes throughout, including some that are good for skin & hair, and some that are full of energy. The book is all about green smoothies in their purest form - fruit, veggies, and a bit of water, and that's it. And "green" really doesn't just mean the colour - it refers to the addition of veggies to a smoothie in a more general sense.
