My heart skipped a beat when Zarian said, "Thanks for the candy in the cup, Mama."
All that sweetness and no sugar added :)

You all know that we have been on a Smoothie Kick since last April. Every Day. Green Smoothies. Well, I created one tonight that my would have put Willie Wonka to shame and no chocolate was involved, just the yummy candy taste to get a sweet yummy thank you from my sweet yummy boys...

1 Handful of organic Spinach
4 bananas
4 Organic Medjool Dates (don't forget to take the pit out please!)
1 tablespoon of Flax seeds
1 tablespoon of Chia seeds
1 cup of water
Put water in first and Blend up each ingredient before adding the next ingredient...then serve with a smile (and a pale yellow mustache)
You can omit the seeds if you like (I never pass up an opportunity to sneak them in there)
Also, if it's not sweet enough, you can add more fruit-try maybe some strawberries or kiwi or other sweet fruits...yummy!
