Shake it Up Saturday
When “Green” shakes made their appearance a couple years ago I was more than a little apprehensive throwing spinach and kale in a shake just didn’t sound like my cup of tea… Um NASTY! But I consider myself a somewhat adventurous eater and decided I would try a few. Most of them were tolerable but not anything I was gonna write home about. Until I found one that The Girl Who Ate Everything featured on her blog from our Mutual High School Alumni blogger Mommy in Manhattan. It became my go to “green” shake it was delightful and didn’t taste like I was eating a couple handfuls of spinach! I punched it up a notch adding my own Andie flair… But it is by far (like miles) my favorite “green” shake! Enjoy!!!
