melodie inspired me to try out the smoothie. i've never had a smoothie before, and its honestly just because i am nervous about all of the sugar that i thought went into them. her adapted recipe for the "green smoothie" contained no added sugar and seemed like something that my body would tolerate while being diabetic. inspired by her blogpost:
melodie's inspiring recipe
i added the needed items to the grocery list and wanted to start this week off right by making a smoothie for breakfast today.
i made my smoothie with the following ingredients:
- 1/3 cup organic frozen blueberries
- 1/3 cup organic frozen raspberries
- 1/3 cup organic frozen strawberries
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 banana
i asked will if he wanted some - maybe just a sip? he decided he would stick with his kashi cereal for today. the smoothie was a lot more tasty than i thought it would be. the overwhelming flavor was the banana, then the raspberries. the texture of the banana - which put it a bit on the slimy side - was the only thing i was not in love with. when i make one tomorrow i think i am going to try less banana and replace part of that with some apple or grapes. i enjoyed my breakfast and drank every last drop! the blood sugar did not spike like i was worried about and will says he will be brave and test it out tomorrow, so hopefully we're on to something here.
