Mango-Spinach Dream

Yes, they all look the same... but each one is very different.
Here is the Mango-Spinach Dream. Again I had to modify this one as the full recipe wouldn't fit into my bullet.
3 cups spinach
2 cups mango flesh
1 banana
2 cups of orange juice

And what I actually did...
1 1/2 ish cups spinach
1 1/2 ish cups mango flesh
1 banana
1 cup of orange juice (freshly squeezed)

I forgot to to the banana in until I was writing this down... but I just added it and this smoothie is fantastic!!

Pear-Kale Smoothie

Here we have the Pear-Kale Smoothie.
Much better than yesterdays!!
1 pear
3 leaves of kale... stems removed
1/2 cup water

and I don't like so much leafy greens so I added a Kiwi.
I like this one :)

Hello Kiwi

Today's Green Smoothie is Hello Kiwi.
I improvised a little on this one because my bullet is not big enough to do the whole recipe... this is where a blender would come in handy.
2 cups green seedless grapes
3 kiwis
1 orange
2 tbsp aloe vera juice
5 leaves romaine lettuce 
2 cups water.

What I actually did
1 1/2 cups green seedless grapes
2 kiwis
1 orange
1 tbsp kelp powder (i couldn't find the aloe juice to buy)
2 leaves romaine lettuce.

This one is not that good. I don't know if its just because I've had a rough morning: feeling really crampy, ready to throw up, and super light headed. Or if its just not that good. But oh well, I'm not quitting now.
