The Perfect Way To Start A Friday

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on February 6, 2009

Happy Friday! :D

Well guys, I must say I am starting and finishing my day in (hopefully) the say way today.

You see, my smoothie concoction turned out to be a beautiful wine-like hue. After I saw Kath’s Superfoodtini yesterday, I knew what had to be done.

And so I present to you….

The Perfect Way to Start a Friday


Of course this merlot monster would not fit in a red wine glass, so this Montrachet will have to do. Sadly, I don’t think I will be having this much red wine tonight after my last day at work!

Merlot Monster


The Superfood Stash:

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen organic blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp flax
  • few sprigs of Parsley
  • 1 heaping handful organic baby spinach
  • 2 small kale leaves
  • 1 1/2 cup Almond Breeze in original


Can you believe how long these flowers have lasted!? Amazing!


Can you see the peace sign in the glass? ;)

The Taste test?

Well, at first sip I knew right away that I added too many blueberries. Next time I will cut the blueberries in half as their taste was just overpowering the strawberries in this mixture. I also didn’t have my trusty ripe banana and I missed the flavour. It was still yummy though and I felt quite michevious as I drank it this morning.

Well, here is to my last day of work! :D I am quite nervous this morning but I am sure it will go well. We are having an afternoon tea at 3pm today for my send off…
