Going Green│Sacramento Family Photographer

It’s time for our Clickin Moms February Blog Circle and while many of my photographer friends from around the globe captured some amazing and delicious looking sweets, I took the road less traveled.  As we are nearing March and the ever-impending tank top, shorts and dare-I-say bikini season (or tankini for my post-mama body), I am finally ready to put an end to my high-sugar and chocolate-filled “holiday” eating and start living a more disciplined and healthier lifestyle.  Thus, my first attempt at one of those “Green Smoothies” I keep hearing about….

I started out with an orange and spinach then pretty much added whatever other fruits I had in the house + a dash of coconut milk + flaxseed.  I worked my poor little blender hard.  The result?

A delicious (no really, even my 4 yo daughter loved it) and refreshing infusion of vitamins and minerals and a migraine free day!  Now head on over to see what food Rachel decided to shoot and don’t stop clicking through the circle until your taste buds can’t handle another minute and you have to rush your fridge or pantry for a bite!

    I love green smoothies. Our Utah friends introduced them to us & make them all the time; one time they made Popeye ice cream (spinach, honey; rice milk, bananas, ice & something else) ~ delish!ReplyCancel
