Tropical Green Smoothie & Thanks!

Pam over at A Love for New Recipes has bestowed these lovely awards upon my witchy realm. This is rather odd, as I really should have been the one to bestow an award upon Pam and her healthful realm. Why? Well, Pam inspired me to leave my blender on the counter and actually use it, which means I ingest more raw, good for me concoctions! Yes, Pam, just one post where I peered down into a glass of Banana Choccie Smoothie got me thinking...

I almost started to make the above smoothie exactly according to the recipe, so that I could have a photo of it here while thanking Pam. And then a few words passed through my head-'A Love for New Recipes'. New!?! So the recipe below is for Pam and all of you Dearies and Elvin folk that are trying to eat more raw foods and who, like Pam, want something new!

First, here are the awards, then the list of 7 things about me, and then my 7 chosen bloggers!

7 Things About Me

1. I really am a ginger just like my cartoon pic.
2. True to the redhead stereotype, I have a bit of a temper!
3. I keep a mostly organic kitchen (85-90%)
4. I can't show my or Cauldron Boy's real pics online, as he plans on running for office here in our subtropical hollow.
5. My house is a 1920's Beachy Shack, although Cauldron Boy says you can't call something a shack if it has central heat & air (smile).
6. I am related to Jesse James the American Outlaw and King Henry the VIII the tyrant!
7. I really can cast a spell or two. Don't worry though-I won't throw anyone in the blogosphere into my Cauldron!

These are the wonderful bloggers upon whom I would like to bestow these awards:

Danielle at So Many Recipes
Rick at Bittersweet

*Dearies, be sure to link from the person that gave you the award, link to the people whom you would like to award, and list 7 things about you!

Tropical Green Smoothie
2 Cups Fresh Cut Pineapple
3 Large Romain leaves
Handful of Fresh Parsley
1 to 1 1/4 Cups Organic Apple Juice

Place all ingredients in blender and blend till smooth. Enjoy one of the best smoothies or green drinks ever!


  1. Congrats on all those awards! You truly deserve them.

    I'm sure you'll cast a spell on all the voters that Cauldron Boy is hoping to win. :)
    And he's right, a shack ain't a shack with central heating and plumbing!

    And thanks for sharing them with me. It's Sunday morning over here, I just woke up and my hair is all over the place as I type this. Thank God this isn't the Oscars cos I would definitely make it on the Worst Dressed List!

    Thank you for kicking my Sunday morning to a great start! :)

    PS-you should try making a smoothie with unripe, green mangoes. They're quite common here. When I find the recipe for it, I'll let you know.

  2. Congrats on the awards! It's always fun to learn new facts about bloggers...

    Okay, I have all the ingredients for the tropical, green smoothie, and I'm making it tomorrow morning! :)

  3. Congrats Stella - it would be hard to think of anyone more deserving! I am flattered and so pleased and honoured to be on your list. Thank you ever so much :) And thanks for sharing those juicy nuggets of information about yourself and Cauldron Boy.

    I've got everything for this recipe and as it happens, hubby dragged our Jack Lalane juicer out of the store room 2 weeks ago, grumbling about white elephants and cobwebs,yada yada yada.... Now I will just have to try this, won't I? ;)

  4. Congratulations on your awards! And on this "green" drink...I have a blender right on my counter too!

  5. This looks delicious! Been doing the green drinks for breakfast for a bit, but this is a new combination that looks terrific. Plus, the green color is perfect for us gingers! ;)

  6. Congrats on the awards. I love the green tea smoothie too - that looks like such a great drink. As you know from reading my blog, I love green tea. Btw, salad recipe is posting tomorrow (since you had asked) - today I did my giveaway post, so please check it out.
