Hot Pink Smoothie Bliss Out !!!

I've been hot, hot, hot for the Green Smoothies that have become part of my daily health ritual. I usually do a couple a day and am seeing wonderful results!

But, this morning, I decided to try something different - a HOT PINK SMOOTHIE!

I found the recipe presented on You Tube by Green Smoothie Girl from http://www.greensmoothiegirl.com/ - check her out!

So, it goes like this:

Fresh COCONUT WATER (from a young coconut)
Half a BEET (yes, raw!)
One CARROT (yes, yes, raw!)
Frozen STRAWBERRIES (raw, raw, raw!!!)

Whir, whir, whir in the blender and then BLISS out on this healthy treat!

I believe the original recipe also called for CASHEWS - but I'm not fond of cashews and didn't want the extra fat, since I'd like to drop some pounds.

BOY - did that come out HOT PINK! And,it was as yummy as it was hot pink!

Delish!!!! Give it a try! Tomorrow I'll post my favorite GREEN SMOOTHIE recipe.

Sip, sip.........ah......Bliss all over the place!

Oh my gosh that sounds awful!! Beets and I do not agree--but if it works???
How is it coming pound wise? I hope good!!

Can I add a big heapin' blob of chocolate chip mint ice cream to mine? Oh, wait. That would ruin the color. Green + pink = muddy brown? ;)

I've put off weighing, although I can tell I have lost weight. I thought I might weigh and post about that on Fridays.

Honestly, you don't taste the beet, as the coconut water, dates & strawberries sort of hide the flavor.

What's the difference between a young coconut and an old one? Is there such thing as a teenaged coconut...oh, I'm so confused. Just the way you described it made me want to try it, however. Who can pass up "Bliss all over the place"? Not I.

Ah - yes I was puzzled by the 'young' coconut thing too. I'll include explanation on my blog today.
