An hour after starting with my usual warm lemon water, I prepared what I call my rocket smoothie. I call it rocket because I used a boat load of Arugula leaves, and Arugula is known as rocket lettuce. It's loaded with vitamins and minerals and phytochemicals that can help in protect against breast, cervical, ovarian, colon, and prostate cancer. You can read more about the benefits of Arugula here.
I simply blend 1 ½ cups of almond milk, 2 bananas, 1 ½ cups of fresh pineapple, 5 to 6 cups of arugula, 2 to 3 pitted dates and 4 tablespoons of hemp seed.
Pumpkin Latte, I mixed a tablespoon of pumpkin puree, ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice and almond milk with my coffee.

I was going to say-- wow, a lot of work for a WIAW! Gorgeous photos 🙂 I've tried adding arugula to green smoothies before, and thought it was too strong. Maybe I was just using too much-- trying to replace the cups and cups of spinach I normally use 🙂
Arugula can be a bit strong, I usually use a mix of baby kale, spinach and chard. Thanks for the comment about my photos.
all of your pics are so gorgeous!
Thank you Rachel.
Hi, Celeste! I stopped by after receiving your comment and wanted to say your blog is *beautiful*! I love your photos. Though we're not vegetarian, my husband and I are trying to incorporate more meatless meals into our diet to save on the expense. Following on Facebook!
