Its what's inside that counts

I made the ugliest smoothie ever this weekend. It tasted great. Maybe even a little too sweet (one too many dates). But man, was it ugly. Had I not made it myself, I don't know if I could have brought myself to try it.

Ingredients in my post-hour-long-run smoothie:
a handful of ice
about a cup of frozen mango chunks
5-6 frozen strawberries
handful of spinach
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 banana
4 dates
1 cup of water

I've been giving the Vita-mix quite a workout of its own lately. The smoothies have proven to be a great fuel alternative in these hot summer months. Great both pre- and post- workout. I've even managed to recreate the Starbucks Orange Mango Banana Blend almost exactly. Pretty proud of myself for that one. Its nice to be able to appease a $4 craving from your own refrigerator.

I've been feeling quite domestic lately. I might even try to cook something this week! Notify the fire department!

yes the spinach strawberry mix usually turns a nice shade of green/brown, but oh so good. :) You need some green powder to just make it green. :) ha Yippee on giving the vitamix a work out too!
