My cousin Laura got me started on green smoothies for breakfast when I visited her in Chicago last fall. I was a bit skeptical at first, but once I tried it, there was no going back! Every morning I have a smoothie made with some combination of fruits (usually 2 or 3 kinds) and as much spinach as I can cram in there. That's 4 servings of fruit and vegetables before 10:00 am!
This morning I used strawberries, so it isn't quite so green. It's kind of an army green...and that made me miss my little brother. So, John, this smoothie is dedicated to you. I'll make you one when you get home. I'll even serve it in one of your fancy chai teacups...
