A Delicious Start

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on January 26, 2009

Good Monday morning!

Well, no matter how my appointment and work go today, at least I know I got a delicious and healthy start to my day!

I made a new smoothie concoction and I loooved it. I got the idea to use canned pumpkin from Kath yesterday! I also decided to add some fresh parsley that we have in the fridge to use up.


  • 3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Breeze
  • 1/4 cup original Almond Breeze
  • 8 sprigs of Parsley
  • 1 large Kale leaf (need to buy more of this tonight!)
  • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 ripe medium sized banana
  • 1 Tbsp. flax

The calm before the storm:

I loved this smoothie concoction! The pumpkin made it soooo smooth and velvety. The Parsley gave it a fresh & mint-like kick. I will definitely be adding it again. I was worried that it would be too much, but it was perfect! Yum!

I am having so much fun experimenting with smoothies. :) The possibilities are really endless.


See you guys later for a beauty product review as well as how to make my roasted Acorn Squash recipe!

The addition of pumpkin sounds delicious, but I still don’t know if if I’d be brave enough to drink that!

Love the pumpkin addition… I went with raspberry, vanilla protein and a splash of milk and flax. But yours looks yummy!

Yum pumpkin! I could really taste mine. I can’t wait for summertime and then I will start making more green smoothies. I love the concept!

One kick-ass green smoothie recipe coming up for you to try:

100 g fresh babyspinach (regular spinach is fine as well)
Juice of 1 orange
1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1 cucumber (optional)
1 banana
Zest of ½-1 lemon (depending on how ripe your banana is – very ripe = zest of 1 lemon, not so ripe = zest of ½ lemon)
Water or rice milk/almond milk to cover

Just blend it up and enjoy!

Try adding some icecubes or a few frozen strawberries for getting it really cold…

It’s amazingly fresh – and healthy!

you’ve really got me interested with these green smoothies!! i have got to try one, i’m a little nervous! i once made one with spinach, soy milk, and frozen mangoes and i really liked it. how does it make you feel during the day/ energized? can you tell a difference if you drink it one day and not the next?


Jen January 26, 2009 at 3:16 pm

Yumm…I love berry smoothies! I usually have one every afternoon…in fact I am drinking one now! So delish!


Lindsay January 26, 2009 at 6:00 pm

I love your green smoothie kick! I usually do mango, berries and a bunch of spinach – tastes great! Although I have a hard time drinking them during the winter…I seem to gravitate towards warmer breakfasts in the winter, cold breakfasts in the summer. Good luck with your appt today!
