This is Eli

A blog about Eli. A blog about survival – and by that, I mean life!

It tastes like freedom.

Happy July! I’ve gone on another smoothie kick.

I’m going to try and ‘Smoothie every day’ this July.

Here’s what I blended up this morning:

The red, white and blue

Red is for- strawberries, 1.5 cups frozen
White (ish) is for – Bananas, 1
Blue is for blueberries, 1/2 cup frozen

2 cups of spinach

Coconut milk

Optional: Nutella or yogurt or peanut butter would each work well alone or in some tasty combo

I blend the spinach first in my blender with two cups of coconut milk. I tend to buy 1/2 gallons from Target.

I next add frozen fruit about 1/2 cup at a time, then the banana.

With smooth ingredients like banana and coconut, a smoothie can get a little too smooth…if that makes sense. Smoothies that are too smooth and not tart enough start tasting like Play-doh.

I toyed with the strawberry/blueberry combo and found this amount gave it balance. Laila complained, so I added Nutella to her smoothie and Eli’s smoothie.

It tasted like the Constitution of the United States of America.

Tell me, did you like it? What did you do differently? xo
