The first one had spinach, oranges, pineapple, lemon and a skootch of white grape juice (100% juice). The second one was made with an orange, a few slices of pear, some grapes, strawberries, spinach, cabbage and soy milk. I added a bit of flax seed as well. It was so good, Nan even had a cup. Just experiment. Adjust flavors till you get it to taste how you want. I love bananas in my smoothies, hubby not so much so we leave them out of his. I add some ice as well, or frozen fruit instead of fresh. Oftentimes I will put fruit in the freezer that is about to be considered "too ripe".
I know it's been said that giving up the processed stuff actually saves money, allowing people to buy healthier options, however, we already weren't buying much processed food items so that really didn't apply to our life. We just have a fairly low grocery budget and I have to shop VERY wisely.
Well, I should end this post...I'm getting on a rabbit trail and a soap box. The rabbit is standing on the soap box. Time to get off! My point is, make conscious decisions about the food you eat, practice moderation, teach your kids to make good choices and get those fruits and veggies into their bodies.
