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 :)
