Smoothie Dilemma

Updated on March 17, 2016
RJ Schwartz profile image

Poetry is the food of the soul. It's my greatest contribution to the world and an area I can always grow.

Green, Red or Blue

Which should I do?

Berries aplenty

But just how many?

Powdered protein, oh joy!

Whey, Pea, Hemp, or Soy?

Add some greens, it’s not hard

Kale, Romaine, or Swiss Chard?

Pomegranate is the latest fad

Just how much should I add?

Yogurt makes it really thick

Low-fat or Greek, which to pick?

Carrots, apples, pears, and ice

Will the color turn out nice?

I’d hate to see it turn out brown

Or worse, would I break down?

Something easy, something old

Lost in time, can it be bold?

Frozen and cold like fallen snow

Is that a way I’d like to go?

Raspberry, Strawberry, Blueberry

How would it taste with a cherry?

Blend up everything in sight

Thinking, I can do that right?

Not great color but tastes divine

I smile, I think it turned out fine…..

    Good poem RJ, and recipes. We have a Nutri-blast blender and use it every day. Don't know how we did without it.
