The Daily Shake: Today’s Smoothie Monster of Death

I’ve taken to drinking a morning smoothie instead of the spinach-mushroom-and-egg-white breakfast that I previously adhered to for years. The more I drink, the bolder I get. I figure I better start keeping track so if I die, at least I’ll have a record of what did me in.

Today’s Monster

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup Yogi Detox Tea (pre-made the night before, chilled)

8 frozen strawberries

1/2 banana

1/2 avocado

1/4 c. plain nonfat yogurt

1 handful fresh greens from the garden including microgreens

1/2 scoop Jay Robb strawberry banana protein powder

1 tsp Spirulina

1 tbsp Flax Oil

2 tbsp Carlsen’s Lemon Flavored Fish Oil

2 tbsp freshly ground flax seeds

Answers to FAQ

Yes, it does look like green/brown swamp death. The Spirulina makes ugliness a foregone conclusion.

Yes, actually, it does taste good.

Yes, I do add fish oil. It really does taste like lemon. (But Sal still can’t hack it.)

Yes, yes I am in love with my VitaMix. I know the law does not protect our love, but if being in love with VitaMix is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.

Read this if you’re curious why I dump so much fat in there.

Go here to watch a video on why I incorporate fish oil.

  3. I love avocado in smoothies! my new discovery!

  4. So creamy and delicious! Oh god, the texture!

  5. I’ve never thought to put avocado in a smoothie before! Oh, and am I being a retard? My avocados always seem rock hard on the inside. I spent LITERALLY an hour trying to spoon it out before giving up in a very bad mood.

    Does that mean they aren’t yet ripe, or gone off?
