I hope today finds you well and full of energy!
I can’t exactly say the same about myself, so I started my day off with this smoothie that is packed with nutrition and goodness. Whether it will heal what ails me or not, I don’t know, but it makes me feel better to know that I’m at least taking a stab at being as healthy as I can be. I’m still waiting for the results of the second Lyme Disease test. These things take patience, something I’m learning to have.
Smoothies are fantastic for achy, low energy mornings, as they are so easy to make and you can use whatever you have on hand to concoct something wonderfully delicious and extremely healthy. I rummaged around the fridge and pantry and was able to come up with quite a few ingredients that would whiz up into a well-rounded meal.
I will leave the quantities up to you. This one provided two large servings for my husband and I.

Hi April! I love smoothies, also, and feel better when I fit one per day into my diet. Love that your husband enjoys them also…. my guy is a fruit only smoothie man but sometimes I sneak the kale into his w/out him seeing. I used avocado once and it felt a little “creamy”. Wonder if adding the pineapple and apple and banana help the texture? Guess I’ll have to give it a try.
I’m a texture person too. I don’t want to have to gag down my smoothie, I’d like to enjoy it! Ha! My husband will eat almost anything as long as I make it for him. I couldn’t taste or feel the texture of the avocado in this smoothie at all. FYI… a lot of blueberries will color the shake dark and hide all kinds of veggies….
