Green Smoothie Challenge

Today on the Morning Show the topic was health. It went from exercise to wellness to making livable communities to green smoothies.

stopped by and talked about her 40 day Green Smoothie Challenge - along with Jamie ... the most hard core green smoothie drinker around!

What's in a green smoothie you ask? ANYTHING you like. I made one today that had swiss chard, carrot tops, raspberries, banana and yogurt in it. Packed full of vitamins and nutrients. Plus I had to trudge to the garden for most of the ingredients (the banana tree is not in bloom yet) so I got some exercise to boot.

Here's a green smoothie recipe to try from Geri's blog:

1 cup spring salad mix
1 cup green tea
3 very ripe peaches
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup ground pecans
2 cups pure juice (I made this in my juicer: 2 apples, 2 pears, 2 kiwi)

If you do not have a juicer, any 100% juice is a good choice.
