This morning I video tapped my green smoothie process--(yawn! I look like a tired herbivore!)

I call them green goddess smoothies because I always feel like a goddess after I drink one! Basically, I combine 1 cup filtered water (cold from the fridge) with a few dates (they're small so like 3) and blend. Then I add 2 large handfuls of spinach (about 2 cups), 1 frozen banana and as much cocoa as I like (more is better ...

Happy St. Patty's Day! Since today is a holiday that's all about greenness, I'm sharing a recipe with you that *might* be in my next cookbook (the jury is still out).
