Drink My Salad

I’m lazy. How lazy am I? I’m too lazy to chew.

Seriously, I enjoy a good salad: they taste great, they make me feel great, but OMG, they take so long to eat. Take a bite, chew, chew, chew. Take another bite, chew, chew, chew.

“Hey Jordan, we’re going out, wanna come?”

“Nope, sorry, I gotta stay home and masticate.”

Fortunately, I’ve found a solution: drink my salad. All the yumminess and healthy goodness of a salad, but you can slurp it down on the go!

Here’s my recipe. As noted, you should think of this as a starting point. Personalize it. One bonus of the ingredients that I use is that virtually all of them can be found at Trader Joe’s, making for an easy shopping trip. I’ll make a big batch, freeze some of it, drink it over several days, then leave my frozen jar in the fridge to defrost for the next day.

Note: this is a salad in a blender, not be be confused with the sugar syrup they sell at places like Jamba Juice.

    I heard you were not a fan of the vitamix, too frothy? I have one if you ever want to have a smoothie date and experiment with things.

      Hmmm…frothy experimental smoothie date? Best not discuss such things on my wife’s blog!

      Yeah, the froth was like another obstacle between me and getting over and done with my salad. Oh shit, this thing has air in, too? Damn, now I have to drink more slowly.

      I want to experiment with a Champion juicer. We had frozen bananas and pineapples passed through that and it came out with a custard creamy texture.
