Many of you know that I have a thing for Diet Coke. Addiction is a bit of a heavy word, but you get the picture. At the end of May I gave up Diet Coke. Cold Turkey. It was surpisingly easy. I don't miss it and have mostly replaced it just with drinking water. But water can get boring and my wonderful husband decided that with all the training I have been doing for Ironman I needed something special to give me some extra vitamins and flavor...and a change from the nothing taste of water.
So every day he goes through this routine to produce the best sludge I have ever tasted.
He starts with whatever we have in the fridge and pantry. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, berries, flax seed. You name it...it goes in. This morning I got strawberries, plums, raspberries, green beans, grapes, blueberrries, kale, banana, baby spinach, kiwi and carrots
It all goes into the Vitamix with the berries at the bottom and the green leafy stuff on top.
Blending, blending, blending....
Adding ice to make sure its nice and cold.
Sometimes I get green sludge. Today it was brown...yummy. It tastes just like a berry smoothie.
And thanks to this sludgie concoction I don't take any vitamin supplements. Everything I need is jam packed into each glass.
I have to say thanks to this brown sludge I don't miss Diet coke. Not even a tiny bit.
