Berry Smoothies this week..

I am wanting to “wake” up my body this week, and get more energy, which includes turning on the inside lights (boo!!) Doing short burst of weigh lifting-Kettle Bells to get my body hot an sweaty, while not pushing my foot by walking to much.. and by making sure I have my “green drink” each morning..

Only thing is my green drink this week as been purple!

Here is what I have been making for a single serving..

  • half a cup of fresh greens-I am using baby spinach
  • half a apple
  • A one inch peice of fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp of lemon and lime Juice
  • 1/2 cup mix of any of these :Blackberries, Blueberries, Rasberries, Cherries
  • 1/4 cup of either Elderberry Juice or Chokeberry Juice

Its quite nice but it is seedy, if that bother’s you, it might not be the best choice.. If you could get this at Booster Juice, it would run you about $5 bucks, I’m not sure how much its costing me, as many of the things are grown on the farm or wild picked.. but under a dollar for sure..

    Woohoo! With that chunk of ginger in there, bet that’ll warm you up, eh? Sounds really good (especially the price; )
    Do you ever use an egg or yogourt/soft cheese for a total meal replacement? I’ve gotta admit that we do have these in the summer for breakfast, but I crave a hot breakfast on these chilly mornings of fall and winter.

    • Its kinds sweet, tangy and spicy all in one, I like it.. I have not done the egg but have done the yogurt or even cottage cheese, but I hear you, hot is king in winter, but this is a cold smoothie for sure, don’t think it would work at all as a hot one..

        Yup. I’m gonna save this one for when the weather comes back around.
        Meantime, stay warm (or at least think warm thoughts; ) OMG, I hate these damp, dreary days that seem to end so early (Stupid time change: why can’t they just leave well enough alone??) REALLY looking forward to the 21st when they start to get longer again.
