morning one

berry yogurt blend

1 cup frozen raspberries
2 large handfuls of spinach
1/2 frozen banana
1 cup water
1 cup coconut milk
4 sticks of frozen yogurt
1/2 persian cucumber
juice from half of a lemon

*i took plain yogurt and added a little whipped honey and a few drops of vanilla and froze it in ice cube trays.

that isn't string cheese ( i promise ) its frozen yogurt pieces

there is also a vanilla version i should probably try

so at first i was sorta bummed after mixing this one coz i wanted it to be red ooohhh or maybe pink.
clearly it is not either.
i also had all thoughts of this drink being sweet which again, nope, not so much.
i liked the raspberry seeds and didn't add the lemon juice until the last minute and only coz i took a drink and it tasted too cucumber for me. i love persian cucumbers but i didnt want to taste any 1 item too strongly- unless that item was called "sweet" and unfortunately i didn't add that ingredient.
but as i drank it i started to like it more and more. what's happening to me herrrrrrre?????!!!!

oh, my sister tory is doing the 7 day with me. she is already very healthy and has done these greenies (not the dog treats- gross) before so i am sure she will have some recipes as well. who else is in?
c'mon, c'mon, c'mon!!!
