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….

Thank you Uru – I love spinach in my smoothies too 🙂
Have a great trip. I’m hoping to go to Ireland this July and I was wondering how I’m going to keep my blog going while I’m away. Do you bring an iPad or borrow family member’s computers?
Thank you! Just back from a wonderful trip!
I bring a laptop and my iphone – find it easy to blog on the road – the only problem is finding the time 🙂
I hope you will go to Ireland in July!

Thank you Karen – I just returned from a wonderful trip – now trying to get over my jet-lag 🙂
I once made the mistake of putting an entire grapefruit into my blender, WITH the skins. It was SO sour I had to toss it. It was a sad day. I’ll have to give this one a try, I am on a smoothie KICK right now!
Oh Brittany – sometimes we learn the hard way 😉 I have made my funny smoothie mistakes too- believe me you are not alone
I am on a smoothie kick too – the perfect cure for jet-lag!
That looks so beautiful and healthy 🙂 I love a zingy smoothie. I always add lemon or lime but next time I will definately try grapefruit!
Yum yes, I love adding lemon and lime to my smoothies too! I hope you enjoy the grapefruit version!
My husband and I have been having green smoothies for lunch for about 6 months. Just recently, after being inspired by Fuhrman’s ‘Eat to Live’, I’ve replaced my morning oatmeal with green smoothies too. I wasn’t an immediate lover of green smoothies, but they’ve grown on me. I can’t imagine going through the day without one now. Celeste:)
You are right green smoothies grow on you! – I get kind of desperate if I don’t have my daily dose of green smoothies 🙂
I adore this smoothie Anne! It’s so packed full of goodness! Hope you had a wonderfu visit home. Can’t wait to see you at the potluck! xx
Yayy me too – looking forward to seeing you at the potluck 🙂
And thank you friend – I had such a wonderful time back home!
