"Pirates have green teeth—when they have any teeth at all."
- How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long and David Shannon
Son No. 2 is really, and I mean really, into pirates. This pirate mom can get him to wear any shirt or try any food if she attaches the word "pirate" to it. This green smoothie happens to be one of his favorites and he loves showing off his green teeth after the first sip. Pirate mom likes that it has fruit, veggies and nuts in it—she likes the funny, green teeth, too!
In a high-powered blender, blend on high for one minute:
Handful of raw WALNUTS
Handful of raw SPINACH
1 stalk CELERY
1/2 GREEN APPLE (skin left on if organic)
1/2 cup plain, non-dairy YOGURT
1/2 cup non-dairy MILK
1/2 cup filtered WATER
10-15 drops SweetLeaf Vanilla Crème LIQUID STEVIA
Cheers matey! And be sure to show off those green teeth. Makes enough for 2-4 pirates.
NOTES: I try to serve up at least one smoothie a day. Back when we were on the Anti-Candida Diet, we were drinking 2-3 a day. That's when I got into the habit of keeping a "Smoothie Kit" of pre-washed and sliced fruits and veggies in the fridge. Click here for more on that.
