So I just got my Blendtec and she’s reaaaal beautiful. By far the best blender I’ve ever owned. It has a touch screen for gosh sakes. I’m surprised my phone is even a touch screen with my personal technology issues. I’m not exactly “with it” when it comes to technology. I’m thankful I have friends that know what’s going on or this blog would never function. Fact.

I plan on making ice cream in my Blendtec this weekend. It’s suppose to snow but I don’t care. I need what I need. And my needs include chili and ice cream right now.

I’m starting to feel more grown up as each month goes by. I’m still only 24 but our fridge is beginning to stack up with save-the-dates and wedding invitations. And well, that’s a grown up thing to do. And the weird thing is, most of those people are around my age. Weird, it’s just weird. I can’t even fathom planning a trip (I’m needing a tropical vaca soon) let alone planning a wedding at this young age. Cheers to those brave souls. Like my cousin. She’s one who is tying the knot soon. I’m in her wedding. I need to find teal wedges asap.

So guess what I’m going to start doing soon? Writing my second cookbook. Yes sir, I am. My first one hasn’t even come out yet, but I absolutely loved making the first one and I want the second one to be even better. Wait, you didn’t know I came out with my first cookbook? Well, that’s probably because you either don’t care, which is understandable, OR you haven’t seen it yet because it’s just on preorder. Yep, you can preorder my book right now and it will arrive at your doorstep come April. And who doesn’t love an unexpected present on your doorstep?! Am I right or am I right?! That’s why I HAVE to shop online so much. Presents at my doorstep make my world go round. Damn you modcloth. Damn you.

So if you’d like to purchase my first cookbook, you can do so here. You won’t regret it. Hopefully. It’s similar to my blog, with old recipes as well as never before seen new recipes. And it also has my obnoxious rants that have nothing to do with the food, just me wanting to be heard. #onlychildsyndrome. I’m going to start using that hashtag in every Twitter post I write. Which is one every 3 months. My twitter is exciting.

PS- this recipe is once again brought to you by my good friend Stacy. While I was out in California, she made me this green smoothie/drink. I thought I would hate it because it was only vegetables, but she proved me wrong. It was a smoothie that was super refreshing and paired perfectly with my sausage patties. Some people don’t like the idea of drinking their vegetables and I get it, but some people would rather do that. So I’m giving you the option. You’re welcome.

4.8 from 16 reviews


  • 1 cup water
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • slice of fresh peeled ginger
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled
  • handful of fresh parsley
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 2 sticks of kale, stems remove
  • 1/2 green banana (I used green so it was less sugary)
  • handful of ice


  1. Place all ingredients in your Blendtec (or other blender).
  2. Blend until completely pureed and smooth (there should be no clumps or pieces of vegetables to get in your teeth).
  3. Drink. I drink mine while consuming eggs, sausage, and avocado.
  4. Be merry because you got a good amount of veggies in your morning drink!

    Hey Juli! I have been using your recipes for some time now and want to pre-order your book…but…wondering if you know if there will be an e-version of it, before I do? I know you and technology aren’t the best of friends, but I love that your recipes are online and then I cook with my iPad and no printing and no sticky pages. If thee is an e-book version I will wait, but I can’t wait for April to have your book in my hands! Congrats on the first of what I hope to be many books!

    1. juli says:

      there will be! come april when the book is released!

    Love green smoothie/juices… try:
    kale, spinach, parsley, green apple, little bit of ginger, and cucumber–this is one of my favorites with the juicer.

  3. Brianna says:

    I’m having issues with the pre-order page. 🙁 It’s coming up with an error. BOO.

    I just made this, I had to omit the parsley as I had none and used a gala apple en lieu of the banana. I like banana’s but I am new to paleo and it seems like EVERYTHING has bananas in it. So, mine turned out really good, its more like a drink than a smoothie which is fine since its not my “meal”. I actually think if I put a little more lemon and some honey in it I could convince 2 of my 3 boys that its green lemonade! The ginger was definitely my favorite touch and I used a ton of it.

    OMG, I’ve been looking for a green smoothie recipe for freaking AGES!!!! Thank you. xoxoxo

  6. Sarah says:

    This is so so good! You’ve converted me to green smoothies! Also loved this with 1/3 (or 1/2) of an avocado added.

  7. Jocelyn says:

    Hi! I’m wondering if you could freeze the greens and banana together ahead of time in a smoothie pack? I’ve been looking for a mostly fruitless version of green smoothie to do this with! Thank you!

    1. juli says:

      i haven’t tried that but i don’t see why not!

  8. Nicole says:

    Do you still love your blendtec? would you still get the same one if you had to buy again or do you have your eye on another one?! i’m trying to make the best decision in investing in one. thanks so much for the feedback!

    1. juli says:

      yes i do! i still use it almost daily!
