I have thought a lot about juicing. I know people who have juicers and mix all kinds of healthful vegetables together, and seemingly love the taste. But I just can't do it. Decades ago we bought a juicer and used it only to make pineapple juice from fresh pineapples. I guess I should have known then that I like my juice and my smoothie to contain fruit, not vegetables.
I buy frozen fruit and put some into my smoothie container, and some in a bowl for Tom. It stays in the fridge all night, and then in the morning he eats his yogurt and fruit, and I drink my kefir and fruit.
Often I mix fruits - strawberries, blackberries, blueberries. Sometimes I will chop up a kiwi in the morning and add it to the frozen berries. In the summer, I buy all the fresh local berries I can and freeze them to use over the winter.
I used to use a blender, but it was time consuming to wash the many parts every morning. Now I have a cool little hand blender that has just one part which has to be washed.
And this is the beautiful and delicious result!
Unlike some people, usually thinner people, this is not my entire breakfast. I also eat homemade, whole wheat toast, orange juice, and coffee with just honey, and lots of water. This holds me for the entire day until supper time. I know that grazing or eating many small meals is supposed to be good for you but this works for me. My only grazing during the day is any fresh fruit that I may have - grapes, cherries, blueberries.
