Double Green Smoothie

Recipe adapted from Pick Up Limes

1. 1 cup (250 ml) fresh skimmed milk
2. 1 tsp flax seeds ground
3. 1/2 cup (15 g) spinach
4. 1/2 cup (15 g) parsley
5. 1 tsp fresh ginger finely chopped
6. 1 large orange, peeled, quartered
7. 1 banana
8. 1/4 cucumber, quartered
9. 1 apple cored and cut into smaller cubes

1. 1 TBS (15g) chia seeds

Add all ingredients in the order listed above and into the blender and blend until smooth. Sprinkle with chia seeds, shake or stir the seeds in, serve and enjoy immediately.

Additional Information:
I mentioned the green smoothie in an earlier post. Apology, this is the only picture I have of it. You probably can guess from the picture, that this breakfast tray was specially made for Daddy FECS, and even a little belated on a weekend (13 Jan 2019). In between a jumping toddler, I only managed to make this very simple breakfast, and it even took me more than an hour!!! Yes, that is life right now for me - very unproductive. And I didn't even made it all myself. The egg was made by our Little FECS - thanks son for saving mommy's day. Life with kids, ya, you don't get anything done, even on a birthday.

Our Little FECS and Baby FECS actually loved the green smoothie... they actually finished most of it that there wasn't much left for Daddy FECS, so I don't know whether Daddy FECS like it or not... aarrrgghhh kids! But then I repeated it again the following day... and they didn't want to drink it. Okie, okie, I got it - good things shouldn't be repeated. Either they had gotten enough of it, or they just wanted to give me face on their daddy's birthday. They didn't like the chia seeds so much. So I will have to alternate between the chia seeds and leave it out on some days.

This smoothie contains two greens, namely spinach and parsley. Thus, I name it Double Green Smoothie.
