Greenish smoothie

Hola hola!

Today something super healthy, and not necessarily Spanish.

Every morning when I wake up, I make coffee. I need it so bad! It’s a daily process  that I do, but one that I like. Coffee and news, and let the day begin! My breakfast or snack is usually a smoothie. I love them, and in a few sips you can consume many of the vitamins and minerals you need for the whole day. They say we need at least 2 cups of fruit and 2½ cups of vegetables every day!  I usually eat more than that, but it’s a great way to start the day fresh and with energy.

I make a different smoothie every day. I try to buy fruits and vegetables that are in season for different reasons.  The first is that fresh fruits and vegetables taste better.  So, the fresher the tastier. Second is that very fresh fruits and vegetables retain their vitamins and nutrients better. Third, I like to support the local farmers when I can.  It´s nice to know exactly where your produce comes from. And last, seasonal produce is usually less expensive because it is more abundant and more readily available.  So eat fresh and local whenever you can!

So, depending on the season I will make one or another smoothie.  But since you can´t always find fresh, you can always buy frozen. Frozen is a great alternative because it retains the flavors, is easy to store, and makes it so easy for smoothies because all of the preparation work is done!

For this delicious smoothie I used;

– 2 leaves of swiss chard

– 1 cup kale

 1/2 cup pineapple

– 1/3 cup blueberries

– 5 strawberries

– 1 cup almond milk

Place all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and mix away!

You can change any of these fruits or vegetables. Enjoy it!

Bon profit!!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
