Goodness in a glass

Usually I wake up pretty ready to go (probably because I can’t wait to get up and make me some new tasty oatmeal variation!). Actually, a lot of times I wake up surprisingly alert, especially given the lack of sleep I’ve been getting on this no- school, working- late summer schedule.
This morning however, was not one of these mornings. It was one if those push- the- snooze- button- roll- over- “just a few more minutes” kinda mornings. But, I had to make sure the little bro got off to school so I hopped outta bed and decided to start the day off with a fresh Orange Julius.

My basic orange Julius recipe:
>banana, broken into chunks
>large scoop of frozen orange juice concentrate
>handful of ice cubes
>1/2t pure vanilla extract
>water (amount varies; depends on how runny you like your smoothies)

So simple, and never fails! {My favorite is adding about 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries to this as well..too bad we were out of those this morning!}

I realized I had a huge bag of fresh kale just chillen in the fridge, so I decided to go green and added a heaping handful to my Orange Julius. It turned out delicious; to quote my 7th grade brother, “that’s actually really good!”, and he’s not necessarily the spinach- in- a- glass type. 🙂

So tell me, what are some of the craziest concoctions you’ve created with your blender? Obviously this one’s nothing extreme, but still, I’m sure to plenty of people think it’s weird to drink something so.. Green!🌱
