Blueberry Burst Green Smoothie
I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I got my camera back! I was overjoyed when I received an email from the repair shop saying it was ready, and I biked there as quickly as I could to pick up my baby.
It feels so good to have it back, and it was a clear reminder of how much I love photography.
The bad news is, today’s post was not supposed to be a green smoothie. It was supposed to be a strawberry pie. You’ve read about my pie failures more than once, but this time I really thought I had the pie thing down! It certainly looked delicious, and the dough rolled out beautifully, but…when I sliced it open I realized I had some pie soup on my hands.
So, today you are reading about my favorite green smoothie. I make this one pretty much every day. It’s one way I can ensure that I’m getting a good serving of vitamins, it’s easy on my stomach, and it fills me right up. It also takes less than five minutes to throw together.
Does breakfast get any easier than that?
If you’re skeptical about green smoothies, I understand. Stay away from kale because you’ll usually taste the kale, no matter how many berries you add. But spinach is magical! You definitely can’t taste the stuff. If you’re looking for a way to give your morning a boost, this green smoothie is the ticket.
