Happy Thursday/Friday all! I am so excited because today is a short day filled with fun at work – it’s Luau Day – we get to party and go home for the long weekend early - yeah! I have am sporting my super cool yellow plastic Lei (yes, I got leid today!) :D and my only sorta Hawaiian type dress. And then, my co-workers decide to take it to the next level – since I look so “tropical” – um, ya, whatever! they have me stand in the trees to take a picture for my blog. Sorry to scare you all but here is Jungle D – oh wait, Hawaiian Danica – so embarrassing! LOL.
I have to admit – the nutritional stats rock!!! LOVE all the organic ingredients and it only adds 30 calories!
I know I am not one to brave drinking it straight up so I started out with 1 c frozen organic blueberries, 4 organic strawberries and 1/2 an organic banana. – ALL Frozen so you don’t need ice.
I opened up my pack of GREEN Super food and dumped it in. I have to admit, i got a little scared at this point and wondered if I had anything else I could have for breakfast in case this didn’t work out.
I LOVE how GREEN it is – the color :D
Then, I added 1 cup of Vanilla Almond Breeze and gave it a whirl in my Magic Bullet to come up with a fantastic looking “Purple Monster”.
I had my friend, Rachel try it first! – sort of like “let Mikey try it – he will eat anything!” I was scared LOL…..but she said it was really good and you know what, she was right.
You can taste the flavor a bit, but, it’s not a bad flavor – it’s sort of berry flavored, but, definitely not grassy or green tasting at all which I liked. I did learn that you have to drink it all at once because if you let it sit (like I did because I had a meeting) it sort of turns into a jello consistency.
I did actually get a nice burst of energy like everyone claims, but, not in a caffeine way – just in a I feel good, healthy and full of energy type way. I would definitely make this again, but, next time, I am going to use raspberries – YUM! I can’t wait to try out the other products now too……..
I have some fun things planned for you all today too:
* Get caught up on all your comments.
* My Vegas Recap – Finally!
* My interview with Anne Cain, Senior Editor of Myrecipes.com – she has some fantastic ideas of what you all can make this July 4th!
* My next giveaway announcement!
I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can get it all up and posted this for you all. Have a fantastic day and I’ll catch you all later this afternoon after our Luau!
