It’s Not Pretty But It’s Healthy

This morning’s smoothie was beautiful before it was blended. What you see (and don’t see) in that blender are mixed berries – strawberries, blueberries, black berries, spinach, a carrot, a little milk, green tea, and a couple of left over smoothie ice cubes from surplus smoothies of the past.

I also added stevia for sweetness and Vitamin C for tartness (and because I feel like I’m coming down with a cold).

Any painters or visual artists out there? You already know the answer to, “What do you get when you mix green orange and purple?”

Yep. Brown.

The end result looks more like something you would find at Starbucks than in your local smoothie shop.

It is, however, cock full of vitamins and antioxidants. If you can get past the color and actually take a sip I hope you will be as pleasantly surprised as I was.
