The Kitchen: Mommy Martini
Okay, so the title is a little misleading. In this season of life, if I were to drink a martini, McKenzie would also be getting a martini... So here's my latest smoothie experiment displayed in a fun glass.
Here is my Mommy Martini recipe:
a whole pear
a whole apple
a whole banana
juice from a lime
2 leaves kale
1 cup ice
1/2 cup water
I threw all of this in my ninja blender and voila!
In the future I might sub spinach for the kale because the kale texture kind of bugged me.
The first question came from Kate, "Why is it green?"
Linnette: "Well, because its full of healthy vegetables and fruits"
Kate: "Mmm, its good."
Linnette: (thinking to herself) "This will never fly in a few years..."
At least for now this one passed the kid test-- Kylie had 4 servings!
