Strawberry Limemade Green Machine Smoothie (8).jpg

Happy weekend and happy June!

So, I can think of more than one occasion that I’ve mentally berated myself (Eh hem, and maybe some others too. Guilty.) for being so boring and unimaginative as to talk about the weather in a blog post. But I’m breaking my own rules right now, because it's been really strangely cold for June.

Our climate is relatively mild through the warm seasons but this is just so strange for the weather to require a sweater. Hey, but I'm not complaining because I'm sure the heat will show up soon and then I'll be missing this cool weather.

Okay, now about this smoothie, it’s only a few simple ingredients, but I wanted to add a little extra fun and make it two-toned. However, if you’re not feeling fancy or you’re just in a hurry, you can totally just throw everything in the blender and go.

But come on, isn’t the contrast of colors more fun? At least, I think so and the boys thought it was cool too. Stay cool guys (but not too cool for those of you burried in 12 feet of snow right now)!

Strawberry Limemade Green Machine Smoothie
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 6


2 packed cups fresh spinach
juice from 3 medium limes (about 1/3 cup)
2 heaping cups frozen strawberries
1/4 cup honey (or agave nectar for vegan)
1 1/4 cups water or coconut water
1 packed cup fresh spinach
1 medium avocado, pit and skin removed
juice and zest from 1 lime
1 tablespoon more honey or agave
2 heaping cups frozen strawberries
1 tablespoon more honey or agave

Combine the ingredients for the base in a blender or food processor and blend until very smooth. Divide the base blend in half (it should be about 4 cups, so 2 cups and 2 cups) leaving one half in blender. Add the ingredients for the green half to blender and blend until smooth. Pour it all out into tall glass cups or jars to fill halfway (use a funnel if needed). Add the other half of base plus the ingredients for red half into the blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses on top of green mix and serve immediately.

very creative @gringalicious :D GOOD JOB!

Very nice. Has a rustic organic feel. I could see getting this at a nice Caribbean bar.


@realestatecoach that would be very cool, to have this at a Caribbean bar, on the beach

Looks so appealing and perfect on a nice hot day. Amazing.

Looks so appealing on a nice hot day... Would you mind if I recreate this recipe in a dtube video? Of course I would credit you 😀. If not, no worries.


Omg, I'd be flattered @alphasteem. I really hope you enjoy it and I'll look forward to seeing the vid!

Thanks for your nice blog. your recipe really great.

Well done @gringalicious have a good day

The weather is very cold right and 5am, still hiding under my blanket. Hopefully by 6am, I will be able to cook something for myself.
The lime and strawberry drink will be very beneficial to one's health. With your instructions, I can always make one myself

I just love to do it @mhsnmajidi!

Mmm... Looks refreshing! We had a spectacular May but it looks like we're also headed for a cool June. But that's pretty typical where we are. Cheers, Aimee

Very nice

The amount of effort you put into presentation blows me away!! Your photos are always so detailed and beautifully orchestrated!

Weird that you guys are having such a cool start to summer, because next door in WA we have had an unusually warm one! I’ve got a decent tan already. 😜 I hope we aren’t stealing all your sunshine!


Haha, well then I'm glad someone's getting it, especially you @coruscate! Thanks, girl!
