Greens for March

I can’t believe it’s March.  I can’t believe Eva is turning 9 months next week!!!  Didn’t I just have her?  Where did my baby go?  Now she’s climbing on top of everything and crawling everywhere, plus babbling.  Crazy.

Since St Patty’s day is shortly approaching, I decided to participate in the Greens for March challenge after reading Gina’s post.  If you follow me on Instagram and if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that whenever possible I try to have a salad.  A lot the recipes I’ve featured here are salads.  I love a good salad.  Mother said to always eat your vegetables and I’m loving them now.  I think this “healthy” (I’m all about moderation) eating  has been one of the things that has helped me keep the baby weight off (along with other things, but that’s a post for another time).  Every week, I ALWAYS purchase spinach from the grocery store and maybe some romaine, arugula or mixed baby lettuce.  The rest of the week I add them to my salads, sandwiches or even green smoothies (if I don’t feel like a salad but want the iron and nutrients from the dark leafy greens).  So for the remainder of this month if I have a green smoothie or salad I’ll be taking a picture of said dish/drink and uploading it to Instagram with tag of #greensformarch, as well as sharing it here on my blog if it is a new recipe.  Join me!

Here’s the recipe for the smoothie I posted earlier.  Pardon the name.  I was trying to come up with something clever.  Obviously, I just came up with a difficult name instead.  😛 One of which I’m not even sure I know how to pronounce.



Serves One

1/4 cup Coconut water
1/4 cup kale
1/2 small apple
1/2 pear
1 banana
1/4 cup pineapple (I used frozen)
1/2 celery stalk


Place all ingredients into blender and blend until all ingredients are incorporated and to desired consistency.  Add more coconut water if you’d like the smoothie to be less thick.

  1. Mmm… yay! I love when I find recipes I can try out. This looks like any typical green juice but it sounds super yummy. And the name is perfect. It made me laugh. =]

    1. Thanks Kate! This is actually one of the first times I’ve made a smoothie without some sort of dairy in it, so I was pleasantly surprised. LOL! The name still gets me. I tried to do something like these Vitamix smoothies my parents used to make, Orbape (or-bah-pea), which was orange, banana, and apple. But with all the ingredients in mine, I couldn’t condense it to something as shorter. 😛
