Now, I’ve tried lots of green smoothies in the past. Some were horribly bitter. Some were terribly sweet. But this version is perfect in every way:
And ponder the fact that I’ve purchased bronzing gel.
Then add some Greek yogurt. Yogurt is rich in calcium, protein, and probiotics. I make it this way.
Of course, kale and arugula are definitely bitter. But I have a secret weapon for neutralizing any unpleasant taste.
Okay, okay. I’m kidding about that last ingredient.
Put the lid on the jar…
This gorgeous green smoothie isn’t at all sweet. It is, however, deliciously thick and creamy. To me, it tastes like a glass of good health. Drink it for breakfast, and you can have chocolate for lunch.
In the comments field below, feel free to discuss smoothies. Or bronzing gels. Or whether or not you ate too many cookies over the December holidays.
Meanwhile, here’s a copy-and-paste version of the above recipe:
