Straw-bana Cabbage Smoothies

I’m a smoothie kind a girl.

Well, okay. Mostly I’m a ‘putting mac n’ cheese on my pizza‘ kind of girl, but I aspire to drink more smoothies.  I recently shared my delicious Cherry Beet Smoothie with you guys, and now I bring you this: the very adorably named Straw-bana Cabbage Smoothie!

I’ve been slacking lately, but when I can I like to carve out just 30 minutes on a Sunday afternoon to make a big ol’ blender full of smoothie, fill a mason jar and stuff it in the fridge for my breakfast on Monday morning. It’s not hard (the 30 minutes includes everything from cleaning and chopping the veggies to cleaning up afterward), and it’s something I really need to do every week.

Especially now that I have TWO delicious go-to smoothie recipes!

Besides (or more importantly than?) being easy to make, they’re crazy-full of vitamins and nutrients. And don’t think you need to take out a second mortgage to buy a $500 blender to make smoothies either! I use a Waring Bar Blender that I got at a local outlet store for like $80, and it works perfectly. It blends and chops everything, never overheats, and I’ve been perfectly happy with it.

My point is, get in that damn kitchen and pull out your blender, no matter what kind it is! And put some fruits and veggies in it. You’ll be glad you did!

  • Interesting combination! Do you taste the cabbage at all?

    I love your new subtitle! 🙂

      No, I don’t taste it at all. And thanks- but it was always my subtitle ever since I started the blog, I just changed the font and made it a little larger 🙂

    I never thought of putting cabbage in smoothies. Good tip!

    I’ve put cabbage into the juicer (not for the faint of heart…), but never in a smoothie – must try!

    I made a smoothie for my kids on Sunday evening. My 6 year son would not touch in because it looked gross the next morning. I used whey protein in it. Maybe the yogurt and the green makes it more appealing after the fridge?

      I don’t use whey so I can’t say for sure, but I do have to shake mine in the morning. Some settling overnight is totally normal.
