This is just a quickie teaser of a post since I should definitely be working not blogging right now. I have something like 100 captions to write today, artwork to send to the processor, essays to read, illustrate, and edit, oh and cover designs to choose for another book! Oy.

I’ve written before about how every day (or close to that) I make a green smoothie: some form of greens like kale, chard, spinach, etc. blended with fresh fruit. It’s a good way to get lots of vitamins and chlorophyll into your system, chopped up finely so it’s easily absorbed. They also taste great. They also make captions more fun to write.

Anyway yesterday morning I stumbled upon a great combination and wanted to share. Spinach, fresh pineapple, avocado, and ginger. That’s it. Oh and water. This is in the top three green smoothies I’ve made in the past year (other favorites include dandelion greens-peach-banana, and romaine-grapefruit-mint-avocado). The fresh pineapple adds a real zing-a-ding-ding to the whole thing; the avocado makes it smooth and creamy.

You start with 2-3 cups of fresh spinach and 12 ounces of water. Blend this. Then add 1 c fresh pineapple chunks, 1/2 avocado, and 1 tsp fresh ginger, and blend until smooth.
