I can't remember when I started drinking my greens but hardly a day goes by without one these days. I have found a few shortcuts along the way but the most amazing discovery is to blend the greens with just a bit of liquid before adding other ingredients. Makes for a much smoother drink. I also chop and divide my greens as soon as I bring them home. Then I put them in jars and freeze them. In the morning, I simply add liquid and blend. The greens are frosty but not frozen chunks, so they blend up easily.
I have been using an immersion (stick) blender but recently, I found that it isn't blending kale so I am awaiting the arrival of a new blender. I will return with a review after some time to try it out.
My go to green drink:
Spinach or kale
And just a bit of frozen pineapple.
Two places I have visted often to learn more about green drinks and staying away from sugar:
What do you put in your smoothies?
Now, a bit of quilting to round out this holiday Monday.
I decided on the next border for my basket quilt. I cut an oval shape in half and I am appliqué in them on a light grey border strip. I think this will be a nice break before the final pieced border. I am out of the dark grey from the center so the last border will be a slightly different grey but still a darker solid. I am thinking it will be a checkerboard. Hope to get going on that machine piecing this afternoon.
