photo cred Cat Off to the Vancouver aquarium we went yesterday.  I haven't been there in yonks.  What a great place. So fascinating and so beautiful.  But the only problem with outings like that is that you're forced to eat their hugely expensive food or bring your own.  The bring your own option was just too hard to organise yesterday. Hey, it happens. So as I was packing up the kids and the car I starting thinking smoothie. I haven't really been able to enjoy my usual daily drink because, Simmah doesn't have a Vitamix and, quite frankly I'm spoiled with my set-up at home. But if I make a huge smoothie and keep the ingredients simple, then Simmah's blender will do the job. AND...I get my smoothie, I save some money and everyone's happy. The VanAqua Special 4 cups filtered water 3/4 bunch organic spinach 2 bananas Blend water and spinach then add 1 banana at a time (if using a conventional blender). Yields 1.5 liters Bottoms up!
