and we have a brand new favorite combination that we want to share. it goes like this ::

green smoothie
fresh spinach or kale (i pack my blender half full of green leaves. we are using spinach mostly but kale is yummy too)
1 heaping cup of fresh pineapple chunks
1 avocado
1 mango
1 frozen banana (i cut bananas into chunks and freeze them in zip lock bags)
1 tsp. spirulina
a dash of vanilla and cinnamon
2 tbsp ground flax seed
1 cup grapefruit juice
if i need more liquid to blend (i usually do) i add cold water.

blend, blend, blend and enjoy! we make 2 batches each morning and the kids drink 8 ounces each and i drink 2 mason jars full thoughout the day. 

do you have a favorite green juice recipe? please share!

hi heidi! the silicone sleeve is from eio and i ordered them from amazon.


they fit on glass jelly jars and also come with a sippy lid. but the lid in this photo is one of those white plastic storage lids from ball that you can buy in the canning section at the grocery store. we drilled holes in them just big enough for a straw :)
