“Peaches and Greens” Smoothie:
*we used a vitamix for this recipe. You can use any kind of high speed blender, but note that it may be a bit more pulpy and it may need to run for a bit longer.
2 cups spinach
1 cup kale
Splash of OJ
In addition to our morning smoothies, we also made some fun, quick lunches and snacks , including corn salsa and breakfast quesadillas. We also ate out at a few great restaurants.
Our favorite was The Garden Cafe at The Commons Grounds, which also happened to be where our friends wedding reception had been held. On our last day, we headed back there for our final Hawaiian meal.
After lunch, we walked off our meal in the gardens. We saw beautiful flowers, as well as many of the plants we had seen on the menu.
The food was fantastic with many delicious choices for vegetarians, vegans, and people with food allergies. I suspect that even “meat-lovers” would find a hearty menu item they would enjoy and devour. The gardens were beautiful and completely free to roam around.
It was the perfect way to end our trip in Hawaii.
After that, we packed our stuff, headed to the airport and took the Red-eye into Las Vegas. Tune in tomorrow where we cover our LEED certified Green Hotel in Fabulous Las Vegas.
Peace and love and greens,
