Green Goodness Protein Smoothie

I love Bolthouse Farms fruit juice smoothies ~ especially when I can find them for a great deal at the market.  Green Goodness is my favorite & lucky me ~ I was at the right place, at the right time.  I bought out all of the large bottles that they had for ~ $1.49 ~ e a c h ~  BOOYAH!   Yeah, I love sales!!

I'm getting my healthy serving by drinking it ~ straight-up; mixed with iced green tea for a refreshing, deliciously lighter version; and my very favorite way to enjoy it ~ as a Green Goodness Protein Smoothie.  Now, I've gotta fess up, when Roy first saw my  green smoothie come out of the blender... he had a few choice descriptions for it.  I'll spare you the details ~ let's just say they were less than flattering ~ but once he tried it, he changed his mind.  Yes, it's an alarming shade of green, it's thick & sludgy (if you blend it properly that is! :) & looks vaguely reminiscent of pond scum.  All I have to say is  ~ Get over it!!  Close your eyes & be surprised by... the fruity, rich & thick, sweet & satisfying flavor ~ it is, in a word ~ Excellent! 

For me, my Green Goodness Protein Smoothie is best enjoyed in my favorite Shrek glass.  The two green lovelies just seem to belong together, they were made for each other ~ a perfect match.  (I sure hope Princess Fiona won't mind :)
