IP-10: smoothie of the day

alternative title: orange you glad four carrots?

for those of us who'd like to enjoy vibrant health, but haven't yet gotten fully into "juicing," wIe can keep it simple with smoothies.

today's (orange you glad four carrots?) smoothie was made with:

* 1 banana
* several chunks of frozen pineapple
* 4 carrots
* frozen orange juice (from concentrate) - i tried to follow the label, but it took me three hours of concentration before recognizing that "concentrate" meant "what's in the thing."

* (optional) 1/2 lemon, thumbnail size of ginger, or vary the amount of the above ingredients for more an effect

1. put ingredients in blender
2. press "play" (taste test by scooping & slurping a spoonful off of the top, while it's blending)
3. pour into a frozen mug

* makes several delicious servings, needs no sweeteners (no ice cream, no yogurt). ..very, very filling.

* smoothies allow us to consume the pulp (and glean its fiber). ..juicers remove the pulp, giving you more vitamins/minerals per ounce, but i've found it hard to "throw away" the pulp.'ll need a compost thigamajig if you really want to juice.
