Green Smoothie 1

I have really taken a long time to get into green smoothies, but, I finally came around. I had been given some really horrible recipes. I recently lost my sense of taste, and it's taken about two months to come back! Beware of Sea Beans! I ate one tiny one and lost my sense of taste! I am so grateful that it's come back, it's back 99% now. I tried green smoothies because I was having stomach issues and a green smoothie was the only thing that seems to work for me over the last two weeks. So here is my first recipe for a green smoothie that I created today.

Green Smoothie 1

Recipe by:  Chef Shobhan
Size : 2
Preparation Time :0:05
1/2 jalapeno -- seeded chopped
1/2 avocado -- peeled
1/4 whole peeled pineapple with the middle in
8 stalks kale
4 large lettuce leave
1 medium lemon -- juice
1 inch ginger -- peeled
16 ounces ;pure filtered water
1/2 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon inner-eco coconut kefir (optional)

Blend everything until smooth. Add some ice if you like it cold. Drink! "spicy and effervescent" NOTES : The stalk of the pineapple is where the bromelain is in the pineapple, so it's important to use the stalk as well as the fruit. adding the Inner Eco Coconut Kefir is adding wonderful probiotics to this lovely refreshing healthful drink.

New layout confusing to me

I am so sorry that my last couple of blogs have been looking weird. I am having a problem with spacing and such. So I am experiementing to see if I can make it how I want to.

Here is a lovely recipe for Amaranth Porridge, its yummy and healthful.
