My milk shake brings all the boys to the yard....

I like reporting on good things. Like, things I consider good. Food items today:

I really like good coffee. I have been grinding my own beans as of late. Experimenting. After two days it got old and so I went on a hunt for some new fresh grinds. Found! "Just Us" Organic, Free Trade - Italian Roast. YUM. It's very dark, but that's how I love it. If you're a java wimp you might want to start out with a milder brew but I prefer living dangerously.

Also, Just to put it out there, I mixed smoothies WAY before they were cool. I was given er, (thanks to Mary) in Elementary school. We even had a flax grinder (well really a coffee grinder in disguise) Who effin knew how ahead of the times we were? Anyway, just wanted to send a shout out to all the hippie Mama's....

I have been experimenting with the best mentioned above I do get lazy, So yeah I did blow $60 on this organic Vegan all natural powder. It quite frankly tastes like shit and I shoulda just stuck with my cheapo Vanilla Whey...but who the hell am I kidding? I don't need much extra protein these days. Day time TV really doesn't take up that much energy. None the less, here is my favorite new smoothie concoction. It'll make yer innards sing, or in my case -rap.

HP's Spinach can be Sexy Smoothie

-- a shot or two of pure Aloe Vera Juice (in Organic Section Super Store - very good for your lady parts or manly muscles - google it)
-- a shot or two of water
-- a dollop or two of sensible yogurt. (aka not kiddie shit) - I like the raspberry green tea flavour
-- a sprinkle or two of ground organic Flax Seed
-- a handful or two of baby Spinach
-- Half of a banana
-- Handful of no sugar added Frozen Berries (if using fresh just add an ice cube for a frosty drink)

So you put all of this in a blender and you guessed it, blend. Now, please note that the Aloe Juice is very bitter. (the worse it tastes the better it is for you) The banana is crucial. If you don't dig the 'nans then add some stevia syrup, or honey or something. I happen to have an industrial strength blender so it really whips up the spinach and frozen items nice. If you don't you might wanna use the spinach cubes (in the frozen food isle) they are sometimes more mixable as it's kinda gross to get a soggy leaf in your mouth. I have also added a half of a cup of Veggie juice in place of the Spinach.

Drink this and it buys ya a free pass for a cheeseburger (with extra mayo and bacon) :)


  1. I just got a blender and having been looking around for some recipes! What a coincidence that you'd post something like this :) Perfect! I'll try it.

  2. Yay! My new fav is using tropical yogurt with the spinach with pinapple peaches and grapes.
