is stevia all natural? is it calorie free??You can use any kind of spinach, baby or regular and you can't taste it. If you don't add the water it won't puree easily at all. but I like to add ice after its blended to give it a more smoothie feel. you can use a 1/4 c agave or honey if you want. you can use splenda if you want, (but i personally don't want to, i think its toxic, but you can do and think anything you want, i don't want to force any beliefs, just want to keep things fun!) dates will sweeten it too.
other greens:kale collards and spinach are you mild "base"greens that you won't taste. all others you will want to use only a few leaves or a handful. beet tops are great too! carrot tops and pretty much anything green will work (not rhubarb leaves, those are toxic)
anyone try the hot pink smoothie recipe?
its a great way for kids to eat them! i have even noticed a big change in my sons attitude. way less meltdowns and he craves fruit and veggies and way less sugar. *and he listens more! downside.... more poopy diapers.
way to go whoever put the veggies in the pudding!
oh, and the coconut oil or flaxseed oil is there to help absorbtion of the nutrients. they are also great fats because they are loaded with omega3 and 6 and will help burn the fat we already have. don't let the "saturated" fat fool you! indigenous island people eat like 60% of it in their diet and are among the healthiest most beautiful people on the planet w/ no heart disease, cancer etc. but if you don't want to add it, don't. avocados will do the same thing, and will make it creamy.
