Cherry Berry Smoothie

I’ll admit it. I was a little nervous to make this Cherry Berry Smoothie with a fruit and vegetable juice blend.

I don’t really care for vegetables.  I mean, I eat them, because it’s what you’re supposed to do, and I’m a mom…so I’m supposed to set a good example and all that.

But if you want the real truth, I’m not a huge vegetable fan, unless you count eating tomatoes in salsa or in pasta/pizza sauce.  I can do corn on the cob, and roasted broccoli and asparagus.  Other than that?  Not so much.  The idea of drinking vegetables through a straw sort of weirds me out.

So when I had the opportunity to review Naked’s new Power Garden Berry Veggie juice, I was a little hesitant.  While the juice contains a ton of fruit I love (cherries, strawberries, plums and apples), it also boasts red beets (along with purple carrots, sweet potatoes, chickpeas and sweet corn)…which I won’t eat normally under any circumstance.

 But I tried it, because that’s what a mom setting a good example does.

And you know what?  I couldn’t taste the beets!  I couldn’t really taste any of the veggies, although the juice isn’t quite as sweet as what I typically drink.  But the color?  Amazing, yes?

The color in these pictures might even be a bit diluted, because I added in some black cherry Greek yogurt, honey, and ice cubes.  I did also blend in some frozen cherries, but basically, this vibrant color came straight out of the bottle.

And you know what?  It tasted amazing!  Doodle slurped down a huge glass of this, with no clue that it was actually healthy for him!

Total mom SCORE. 🙂

      Oh Sally, you are too sweet. I think I lucked out on these photos because the smoothies themselves were so bright and vibrant – that made things a little easier! 🙂

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
