Many of you know of "Above Rubies" (www.aboverubies.org), the wonderful free magazine about homemaking, parenting, and all those other interests that we all share. I got this recipe from there. We drink this (or another green variation) on a nearly daily basis, and have all learned to love it-even the one who hated it at first!!!
"Green To Go"
1 ripe banana
2 cups purified water
1 Tbsp. honey (raw and local is best)
2 Tbsp. flaxseed oil or coconut oil
a handful of ice
a blender full of greens
Blend in a good blender (I have a Blend-Tec) on high for 30 seconds, then max for 30 seconds, then high again for a few seconds until smooth.
When beginning this great drink, you can use fewer greens and a little more fruit. Add more veggies a little at a time as your family adjusts to the taste. We use whatever fruit is on hand, apples, pears, berries, etc. and whatever greens we have as well, romaine, spinach, red-leaf lettuce, etc. I like the organic salad greens mixture from Costco. I also add a Tbsp. or two of powdered spirulina when I have some.
