Still Chipping Away at the 25x25...

Never fear!

I have not abandoned my 25x25 list. Still have three more months and several more things to do!

One of my challenges "Try 25 different drinks (alcoholic/non-alcoholic)" have kept me busy.

Most recently, I have tried this... the Green Drink

Look appealing?

Yeah, I didn't think so... but surprisingly - this wickedly green drink tastes a lot like bananas... and not a lot like everything else that's in it. Want to drink something super healthy? This should be at the top of your list!

Shared by a friend... I think I am going to try to make this soon!
(Cross my fingers that it works out all right!!)

Need the recipe?

  • 3 kale leaves
  • 1 handful of baby spinach
  • 1 handful of or red
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 Cups water
  • 1 Cup (or more if you want) of any frozen fruit (you can also use any fleshy fruit like an orange or peach..) If you use berries, it will turn it brown...just a warning.
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 bananas
  • Put it all in a blender and blend till smooth…. I usually add some ice cubes in the blender to make it really cold.  And then I keep it in the fridge for a day or 2

TaDa! Green Drink!

A less vegetable green drink (with about the same color) would be Matcha (powdered green tea) milk. I don't know if you'll like it any more but I could send you some if you like ;-)
