Green Smoothie And Sushi Dinner!!

I am definitely determined to drink "Green Smoothie" every morning starting TODAY! Please wish me luck with this!!!

.....So I picked up a bunch of fresh kale at the grocery store as planned. I had my CLEAN book ready in the kitchen so I was good to go!

The recipe called for: 1 1/2 cups of almond milk, 1/2 cup of coconut water, 2 leaves kale or Swiss chard, coarsely chopped, 1/4 avocado, 1/2 cup mango chunks, and 1/2 cup of ice.

As EASY as I am, I just poured 2 cups of almond milk into the blender and skipped the coconut water because I didn't have it. I used half avocado just because I like it so much and frozen mango chunks (I skipped the ice because I don't like it too cold). Oh, I didn't add any agave syrup though, I put it in the pic because I was at first freaking out by the warning of my husband that I was not gonna like the taste of the raw kale in this smoothie because of the bitter taste. Good thing, I tasted it before I put in the syrup!!!

You know WHY???
Because I L O V E it so very much (without the sweetener), I drank it all up with my big straw out of the blender within no time. Mmmmm, so great and refreshing!!! :)

Our Sushi Dinner on Friday Night!
We have had Sushi Rolls for dinner on Friday night 3 weeks in a row because I wanted to use up all the Sushi ingredients and my family was so okay with that as we all love Sushi. A little more work for me though, I have to make 3 different fillings for each of us. The above picture was my pan-fried tofu and veggie rolls, so yummy! I ate them right from the cutting board because I was too tired to put them in a nice plate, he he he!!! :)

This plate was for my husband, with imitation crab meat and veggies. For my son, Nathan just likes it with imitation crab meat only (No pic). To be honest with you, I don't mind eating crab meat but I thought tofu was a better choice for me. My tummy was so happy that Friday night. YUM!!!

Do you think it's too boring to eat Sushi Rolls every Friday night???


  1. Well done on your green smoothie :) I know I couldnt bring myself to drink shakes with green veggies in them, or should i say any veggie shakes lol. i deffinately profer fruit shakes.
    That first sushi picture, is it without seeweed? I like the thought of sushi but the smell of the seaweed makes me almost sick, i wonder if you can make sushi without the seaweed part?
    I dont think its boring to eat sushi every friday, if you like it why not! :)


  2. Rose,
    Thank you:) I know I got hard time to accept veggies in my smoothie too but I'm glad I tried!

    My sushi had seaweed in it, after I spread rice on the seaweed, I turn it up side down, put fillings in and roll it so the rice part is outside. I should show you how to make sushi w/o seaweed next Friday! :)

  3. Oh those sushi rolls look so good! yum!

  4. Weird! I had a green smoothie after my workout and sushi for dinner yesterday, too! Whoa!

  5. Great smoothie!

    I have phases where I eat sushi once a week for a month straight then I don't have it for months. You've got me craving some now! :)

  6. Wow your sushi is very impressive! I'd love a tutorial on that. I tried to make sushi once but it was halfheartedly and the results definitely showed that.

    I actually have all of the ingredients on hand for your green smoothie except for almond milk. I'm going to go pick some up and give this a try! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Beautiful sushi! I love the pan fried tofu idea. and the smoothie is gorgeous. I love that you drank it straight outta the blender!
