Green Thumb Smoothie

When The Hubster asked for an “energy drink of epic proportions,” I was more than a little surprised.

The Hubster never asks for stuff like that. Never.

To say that I felt obligated to create him a subtly-soothing sweet treat that would give him enough energy to make grass grow in our backyard was an understatement.

The Hubster is most definitely not a smoothie fan.

Or, at least he says he’s not. I caught him enjoying a black and blue super smoothie a few weeks ago. He claims it’s the temperature of the smoothie (ie – not cold enough). I think he would just rather have a milk shake.

But this particular smoothie? Got a green thumb’s up.

He must have been really…parched.
