Hooray!!! I’m so happy that I wanted to share it with you. Not so long ago Jamie magazine NL was searching for new guest bloggers for their online site. I thought, well, I’ll just send them an email that I would love to be a guest blogger for a whole month for this amazing magazine and guess what? They’ve chosen me for the month January! I honestly didn’t see this one coming so I’m extremely proud and full of enthusiasm to start writing…just need to wait a little bit more 😉
Ok, today a book review on Dutch goes Italian. I’ve noticed various hypes in the foodie-world. And I’m no big fan of hypes in all honesty. I prefer just good food, mostly healthy and once in a while something less healthy 😉 But obviously I hear and read about the hypes and one of them is the “green smoothies”. I guess all of you are more or less familiar with these healthy drinks. Even though in Italy most of the people have never heard of them… I wasn’t too enthusiastic about them in the beginning. Mostly because of the raw greens in it. But I thought to give it a try and my first green smoothie was one with pineapple, mixed salad leaves and water. Wow, this was one nice surprise that tasted for more!!! So I purchased the book 70 Green Smoothies (translated from Dutch) of the Dutch writer Marjolijn van der Velde to get inspired. A fabulous book not only because of the 70 delicious recipes. The first part of the book describes the positive effect of drinking of these healthy drinks! Besides tips are given for the cold winter months, for pregnant women and others who have special needs. Perfect and it made me want to start using the blender immediately. I’ve made quite a few smoothies in the mean time. Today I’m sharing my own creation inspired by the book!
Cut the banana and peach in smaller pieces and put it in the blender together with the water and mix well. Now add the salad and mix well. If you want the smoothie to be more liquid, just add a bit more water.
