For what seems like FOREVER, I have wanted a juicer. I was convinced that I would LOVE juicing yet never actually got around to buying one. Until, this December. I didn't order the masticating juicer I thought I wated six years ago, but I did buy myself a handy dandy blender that I am 100% happy with! Admittedly, it has sat on the counter for two months, until I WROTE DOWN the goal of making green juice and ordered all the ingredients from Peapod (I love peapod because it makes meal planning easy!). Now, green juice is on my to do list every day.
With the help of a trusty nutra ninja, I am no longer WISHING I could make green drinks, I'm actually doing it! YAY!
I am not a very precise person so I don't make our drink with the same ingredients every day but the blend we have been loving includes lots of kale, a few stalks of celery, cucumber, lemon juice, spinach, and fruit. Sometimes I use half an apple, sometimes I use a whole banana, I've also started buying frozen fruit like mango to throw into the mix. It's always yummy.
And I'm not the only one excited, guess who LOVES green drinks even more than me?
Now that Lucy is just as excited for green drinks as I am, I have extra incentive to make it a habit. We drink green drink together for breakfast every morning and it has become a fun tradition to share. I am going to enjoy this while it lasts, and cross my fingers that this little habit we are forming now lasts for years and years to come, with the full knowledge that in a few years she may only want to eat oreos and gummy bears. :)
