Green smoothies are still quite popular but have been waning over the last year, at least according to my informal polls and site analytics. But they are still some of the most healthiest smoothies you can make and drink. The real key is to make a green smoothie recipe that contains enough greens (leafy stuff) to be super healthy, but not to many so the taste of the smoothie is unpleasant. So you need to mix in a lot of good tasting fruits or otherwise you are just drinking your salad.

I think this green recipe hits all the high points for nutrition and for flavor. It should almost be named the "kitchen sink" as it has a little bit of everything. As green smoothies go, this is going to be a favorite and as breakfast smoothies go it is going to well...get you you going. As with all smoothies, feel free to tinker with this especially if you don't have every ingredient on hand. Get 80% of it and you will have a delicious smoothie for breakfast or any meal really and one that is going to provide a lot of healthy nutrients for your day!

    The thing with smoothies, is that sometimes there is leftovers. Smoothies put into a closed up container can last for about two days. But the longer not used the less effective the juice works with your body from what I understand. Ones the veggi or fruit is picked, it starts the process of dying or decaying. S, naturally, you will loose nutritional value over time. Mine never lasts a day…smoothies are yummy and I have the left overs for a snack as one should have many mini meals per day and cut out the big heavy tummy bursting meals.

    Tips: I buy fresh fruits, work them up into small sieces, place in a freezer bag and freeze. When you are ready to make your smoothie, your fruits are all ready to go. Because they are frozen, they take the place of ice cubes. I do not like the taste of water in my smoothies, so I use Almond milk or coconut milk. The smoothie ends up more like ice cream or a shake. I try to use my veggies as soon as possible. They do not freeze very well so I try to use them up as fast as I can. I wish they did not package leafy veggies in such large packages. I am a single person and I end up throwing a lot of food away. Any one have suggestions. I am open to hear comments.

    My Gran (who works as a jeweller) explained to me “When attempting to polish your Pearl Earrings, it’s always a great idea to soak it in a solution of water and white vinegar. Stay away from cider and wine vinegars. Go with white vinegar only. This will remove tarnish from your jewelry and give it a million-dollar shine in only a few short minutes. “

    My neighbour (who worked in a jewellery store) said “Clean Drop Earrings with products from your kitchen. Pearl Earrings tarnishes with time but it is easily cleaned with vinegar. Combine half a cup of white vinegar with two tablespoons of baking soda in a small bowl. Stir the mixture until it forms bubbles. Put your Silver Earrings into the solution leaving it for two to three hours depending on how tarnished it is. Remove the jewelry and wash it under cool running water. It will look as good as new!”
