Praiseworthy food and toys!

I just received my new Braun Powermax 2050 blender in the mail from Amazon. My old blender broke and this was rated a best buy from Consumer Reports and only $39! I celebrated by making the following which comes from the Disease Proof blog.

Chocolate Smoothie
5 oz. organic baby spinach
½ cup soy milk
½ cup pomegranate juice
1 medium banana
1 Tbsp. natural unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups frozen blueberries
1 Tbsp. flaxseed, ground
First, liquefy spinach in soy milk and pomegranate juice in the blender. Add all remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Serves 2.
As son told my daughter, don't turn your nose up at it until you've tried it. Instead of five ounces of baby spinach I used a head of romaine and my son (age 6) and I are sharing. I promise you will not taste the greens AT ALL. The chocolate is in my opinion overkill. You could easily make it without and just have a banana blueberry smoothie. Those of you who have people who don't like greens in your life try this. I used regular milk too by the way.
