Week 2: Recipe 2 of the Green Shake Challenge


I returned from a scuba trip to Cozumel this past week and caught a cab from Midway airport. While my boyfriend and I made small talk with the cab driver I noticed in his cup holder was a water bottle with a green liquid in it. I got so excited I blurted out "Sir, is that a green smoothie in your water bottle!" I could see his surprise in the rear view mirror as he laughed and started explaining how his wife makes him one everyday to try to make him healthy. " She just blends up some vegetables and I don't know whatever else she puts in these things but she insists I take one to work everyday". We encouraged him to keep it up and shared how much we love our green smoothies.

Later that day I thought how awesome it would be if all cab drivers drove around drinking green smoothies. What a perfect world that would be.

Enjoy this week's smoothie and post your comments with us.
