I always put “tech” under tags because I think tech people invented the green smoothie. I think they invented it so they could stay at their computer clicking and sucking, sucking and clicking. I do it too. It may be wrong. It may be sad. But I do it too.  21st century Mommy-fixation? Probably.

And behind the computer, these two little guys were working. They hollowed out a watermelon and put spinach in the blender, packing it down with wee paws. They whirled and whirled, making a highly dangerous foray into your freezer for ice. Now they are exhausted and you need to drink up:


No-Click Labor Day Green Smoothie

3 kiwi fruit, peeled and chunked

1 cup pineapple chunks

1 stalk celery

Decaf green tea to taste

1 cup spinach, kale or beet greens, torn into chunks

2 tablespoons chia seeds


Put the kiwi, pineapple and celery in the blender and pulse to break down. Add a little of the tea to make the tornado in the blender jar, if needed.

Add the greens and chia seeds and cover all with tea. Blend, dropping ice down through the blender top.
