green smoothie day three

I should've taken a picture of our smoothie this morning! It was kryptonite green! Here's what was in it:

- two huge handfuls of spinach (it filled half the blender lightly packed)
- 1 1/2 apples
- 1 banana
- approx. 1/2 c apple juice
- approx. 2 1/2 c green grapes

Liam loved how green it was (I served it in a bright green cup too). When I told him it had spinach in it, he asked if that's why it tasted so great. Yes, Liam. Yes, it is.

Simon, on the other hand, refuses to try them. He had one little sip day 1 and now runs away yelling, "NO DA DOO!" (No thank you!) when he sees me coming towards him. I'm so disappointed since he's the one who really needs some more veggies in his diet. Day 2, I was able to sneak some into his parfait instead of using all soy yogurt and he didn't seem to notice.

I think I'd have better luck if it was in popscicle form, but we seemed to have lost our forms in the move (only have the sticks). I'd really love to find some non-plastic popscicle moulds, but I'm not sure that exists. Failing that I'd take regular ones, but we've searched EVERYWHERE here with no success... Walmart, Zellers, Canadian Tire, four different grocery stores, even two second hand shops! Nothing! So if you see any while you're out and about, think of us! Think of poor veggie hating Simon and his love of popscicles!

I'll take pics tomorrow. Promise.

Oh and here's (hopefully) the Green Smoothie video I promise a couple days ago:

Woo hoo! I did it!


  1. Your blog is looking great! I like the variety of topics - from green smoothies, to oh-so-cute nephews, to pink canisters. I could totally go for a green smoothie, if someone else would make it for me. When I get over being lazy about pulling out the blender I might try it! :)

  2. Hello Mama!!!!
    Oh that smoothie sounds divine, I will have to try that one and I am drooling over your cannisters...I DO love pink!lol The boys have grown so goodness!! Congrats on another boy......I have been positive we're having a girl, but Bill is certain it's a boy...ah well, hopefully we can find out at our 30wk US. I will keep you all in my prayers for no more excitement like you've been having with this pregnancy...that must've been so scary. This has been my roughest pg to date...constant unexplained bleeding, although not quite as bad as yours and no contractions.
    Hugs to you all, we miss you guys!
    Love, Penny

  3. haha, I can picture both Liam and Simon and their very different responses.. lol. "Is that why it tastes so great?" haha! I second Susanna on this one.. if someone else made the smoothy for me, I would be all over it!

    miss you guys!

    PS. How have Liam's first few full days of school been for him (and you)?

  4. i found your popsicle moulds...if you want them?
