Smoothies for breakfast, as part of lunch, as a snack, before dinner – smoothies for any occasion ……..
But smoothies have also become THE number one “Fast Food” in our family. In a hurry, on the go, no time to cook or even eat – no problem, spin up a smoothie and away you go. Quick, nutritious and satisfying!
Today I made a green smoothie with spinach and grapefruit. I love grapefruit, but for 12 years I wasn’t able to have grapefruit! I was on cholesterol medication and something in grapefruit doesn’t mix well with that kind of medication.
Since I changed to “balanced living” and added lots of plant-based foods to my diet and started exercising, I no longer need medication to control my cholesterol!
There are, as you can imagine, many benefits connected to that – one great one is, I can enjoy grapefruits again :-)
Spinach and Grapefruit Smoothie
One bunch of fresh spinach
One bunch of red or green grapes
1 slice of fresh ginger
2 Medjool dates
2 cups of filtered water
Put it all into the blender and blend into a refreshing, smooth, cool and delicious drink.
I hope you will Enjoy it !
Now to something completely different…..
Monday I travel back to Copenhagen to spend some time with family and friends. I am SO excited!
I will try to post while I’m away so stay tuned….
