Just workin on my Fitness...

Introducing the latest breakfast of champions! Initially repulsed at the thought of this suggestion by Jules.... rave reviews coupled by curiosity and an opportunity to gross out my kids, off I went to Stop and Shop and to get all the ingredients. Believe it or not - it is GOOD. You can't even taste the spinach!

The constants:

2 cups of raw, cleaned spinach
2 cups of water
1 tbsp of agave (I had never heard of this, but it's right there with the honey)
1 tbsp of almond oil (the fat makes this filling and helps to hold you over... totally optional)

The variables:

really any fruit - I usually do 2 per shake
frozen fruit works great to make a nice consistency and get it really cold.

This is my favorite recipe from the different variations I have tried...
frozen pineapple and a banana

and the best part is one of my son's who is always fighting me to eat veggies was so grossed out and intrigued by the color he tried it, and liked it too! I suggest drinking with a straw b/c a green mustache might not be a good look! Give a try, I promise you will be surprised!

And another one bites the dust. ;) I gave one to my dad this weekend and despite his initial horror, he sucked it down in two minutes when we were outside in the 96+ degree heat. He kept marveling at how good it tasted. Heck, I'm still shocked at how good it tastes! BTW--I also use this to get veggies in Mikey.

Pineapple and banana is my favorite, too! :)
