    Amy, this is similar to some of our summer smoothies! I usually add most of those ingredients, but love the idea of the celery. Will have to add that next time. I also throw in some “secret” ingredients (aka chia seeds, oils, and some supplements) that the kids never know about! LOL

    I have a vita mix in my ‘wish list’, it would be awfully nice to toss in celery and cucumber and make a smooth drink minus the chunks, haha.

    I love the idea of adding lemonaide to a smoothie. I will try that this morning!

    Just tried kale and spinach in smoothies this week. I have been missing out on something great. They also keep me feeling full and I don’t run out of steam in the mornings when I drink them. I’m hooked, especially with berries in them.

    Some interesting additions in that smoothie! I am overflowing with apricots, so they go in every smoothie. The additions differ … spinach, banana, amazing grass, nut butter, ginger, cinnamon, etc.

    I have the Ice Dream cookbook, it is great! Love her other book too.

    I just love seeing what everyone else is doing for smoothies! I also do flax and chia seeds but I have yet to try cucumbers or celery. I have a cucumber just dying to be used up in my fridge, so I’ll be trying that really soon! :)

    I should post smoothie recipes too – but I tend to just dump and go! This sounds refreshing, yum!

    @Alta, I always dump and go and had to think this one through. I made it four or five times before I got just the right mix to post here. :)

    Amy, that smoothie looks great! I actually fell off the green smoothie wagon this past week (stress & junkfood – enough said), but seeing this inspires me to jump right back on. =)

    @Julie Lynn, I had to recalibrate when I came back from The Fancy Food Show- I’d had 3 days of a little bite here and something different here, but no real meals. It took my body a couple of days to adjust once I was home and on a normal eating schedule. I think it’s part of being human.

    It is, indeed. =)

    Hey Amy.

    I love the colour of the smoothie even though it has a whole lot of green in it, it’s still so bright! I’ll have to make a green smoothie today now.

    Love your recipes Amy- always so inspiring!

    By the way- looking forward to your book as well!
