“Strange” is all in perspective, wouldn’t you say?
Let’s take milk, for instance. We drink almond milk. I’ll take soy or rice if that’s what’s available, but for the most part, we like the Silk brand of almond milk, original flavor. Grandpa B finds this strange.
Grandpa B’s milk of choice? Evaporated milk. Yes, you heard me right: canned milk. He wants it on his oatmeal. He wants it in his Pero (think “healthy coffee substitute”. I think it’s made from chicory?). He wants it drizzled on fresh strawberries. Strange. Very strange.
But it’s all in perspective.
You might think my smoothie today was strange.
You: Kale and zucchini in a smoothie? Weird!!!
You might think it was normal.
You: Kale and zucchini in a smoothie? That’s nothing! I put carrots and broccoli in my smoothies!
Whatever side of the fence you rest on, just know that it was strange, but it was good…
Kale Zucchini Peanut Butter Smoothie
3/4 frozen banana
1 cup frozen, shredded zucchini
2 cups fresh kale
1 cup almond milk
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 TBS peanut butter
Optional: hemp hearts to sprinkle on top
Purée all ingredients in a high speed blender. I like to blend the liquid and kale first to get all the kale bits finely puréed.
