Ethel, thank you for the comment. It really is a tasty, healthy choice. Gee, I sound like a commercial. Ha.

Indian cooking, I love smoothies, too. I have one most mornings when I get up and share it with my son. My blender is broken now, so it is imperative that I get a new one. In a pinch, I can use my food processor. Thanks for the post.

Yes, Audrey, you're correct. I need to think up a green tea smoothie. I think green tea is so refreshing.
