I love drinking my veggies in a sweet form.
I don't mind "swamp water" (as Sarah calls it)

and I personally don't have the experience of cleaning out manure pits
(as Matt did, and he thinks this stuff looks like it came from there)

if you can stomach something strange looking
try this recipe

2 cups water in blender
2 cups frozen blueberries
2 cups fresh spinach (push it in)
1 carrot grated
two spoonfuls of OJ concentrate
2 or 3 packets of stevia (truvia, or walmart's off brand)

blend all (even my cheap blender does this, no $400 blender here)
You could drink all of it (if you can handle 6 cups of drink) and not get more than 400 calories.

My little people drink this because they are not prejudiced.

(and Eliza drinks it because she feels valiant for drinking something so healthy)

Matt says he'd try it if I left out the spinach.

That's the offender for the brown-green color.


DeAnn taught me to make mashed potatoes with a large part cauliflower

(maybe half or less)

and I must admit I was skeptical at first.

But we've had it twice and it's a success with everyone

(only because everyone has no idea so SSSSHHHHH. It's a big secret. seriously.)

  1. To get past the color, I just put green smoothies in an insulated mug with a lid. (we have a few for hot chocolate.) If you don't see it, it seems to taste better.
