detox is delicious: green smoothie!!

I'm reading Victoria Boutenko's new book, Green for Life, right now (stay tuned for a review and some sneak peek recipe fun!) and am getting more and more excited about green smoothies. However, since I'm trying to stay away from sweet fruits, enjoying green smoothies has been a little harder than expected. I tried a grapefruit-orange-spinach combo...unless you like very bitter morning drinks, I do not recommend it. I gave up on the dream for now of enjoying sweet smoothies and have embraced the savoury smoothie. Here's a delicious veggie smoothie I came up with this morning:

Happy Monday Green Smoothie
1 handful spinach
2 med tomatoes, quartered
3" long piece of cucumber
pinch cayenne pepper

blend until smooth.
refreshing. spicy. delicious. a great way to wake up.
I can't wait to experiment with adding some lemon, or coriander, or avocado!

Great book!

Your smoothie sounds wonderful. I'm making one today of water, organic mango, spinach, and cinnamon. :)
