Green Smoothie 

If you are new to green smoothies, This is the place to start.

 This was the first green smoothie that I tried and my whole family has loved it from the start. 

I promise that you can not taste the “green” in this smoothie. 

Yield: (2) 10-ounce servings 

1 cup orange juice 

1 very large handful baby spinach leaves 

1 cup green grapes, frozen 

1 medium banana, frozen 

Layer the ingredients into the blender in the order listed. 

Puree until completely smooth. 

Strawberry Date Smoothie 

Strawberry Date Smoothie

Thick enough to pour into a glass and eat with a spoon or slowly sip, 

This smoothie is a naturally sweetened strawberry milkshake that can’t be topped. 

Yield: (3) 8-ounce servings 

1 cup milk 

2 medjool dates, pits removed 

1 small banana 

12 frozen strawberries 

Pour milk into the blender and add the dates. 

Blend until the dates are dissolved into the milk, about 30 seconds. 

(The goal is to have a sweetened base for the smoothie, without chunks of dates.) 

Add the banana and berries.

 Puree until the smoothie is thick and smooth.

All Purpose Stain Remover (Safe For Most Fabics ) 

Stain remover

Mix baking soda, Blue Dawn dish liquid and hydrogen peroxide into paste using equal parts of all ingredients.

Apply paste on both sides of garment and let sit overnight and then wash in machine if stain still appears reapply the paste and let sit for a few hours or overnight and then rewash until stain is gone, tough stains may take you a few times to completely remove
