Hello Type 2 ladies..

Thanks for all the recipes! I love the idea of green smoothies since I'm not a big veggie or salad eater. Seems like you can get a day or two's worth of veggies into you in just one blender full of smoothies.

Edited to add: Okay it's lunchtime now and I stopped at the store to grab some veggies to test out my green smoothie.

I have these ingredients in my smoothie:

spinach
fresh mint leaves
parsley
clove of garlic
banana
apple
orange juice
water

No sugar added and it's pretty tasty! I can definitely get with this.

I like to make one that is more like a salad/salsa and add a tomatoe and fresh cilantro.

I use milk and coconut milk, it's a great way to get in my calcium since I drink plenty of water.

Love the idea of mint leaves!! What do you mix the mint with?
