A Multi-Green Mid-Saturday Smoothie…

Saturday morning is the time for me to run errands and pick up ingredients for the following week, so off I took for Aldi’s and Publix. I picked up quite a bit of greens, so once I got home I took out a few leftover items which made it into this new “multi-green mid-day fulfilling smoothie”!

Wondering what’s in it? Here goes!

1/2 ripe avocado

1/2 cup of freshly squeezed blood red orange juice

1 cup of chopped pineapple

a handful of mixed greens

1 stalk of celery

3 strawberries

4 ice cubes

I was surprised how good this tasted. I am not so celery minded but one stalk was good enough for this mix.

What is your preferred mid-day snack?

What to do with avocadoes which have all ripened to full maturity? This guacamole is flavorful and delicious!

3 avocadoes

4 freshly squeezed limes

freshly squeezed lemon juice from one large lemon

1 chopped large red onion

1 chopped large tomato

sea salt

freshly peppercorn

This is the fastest and easiest meal, yes, meal, that you can put together. In an aluminum bowl I placed the avocadoes, chopped onion and tomato, and then the fresh lime and lemon juice, sea salt and pepper….mix is thoroughly and place it in the fridge for at least 15 minutes unless you are serving it as soon as it is made.

I use Live G Free (gluten free) brown rice crackers, sweet chili flavored. The burst of fresh and sweet chili flavors with the guacamole is delicious, and quite filling.

This is a wonderful appetizer to share with friends….or have yourself as an entire meal.

Happy Sunday, everyone.
