Every day for five days of their cleanse, Bossy and her friend Martha get together late morning to watch DVDs and eat lunch, where lunch equals Not Steak Bernaise.
But Bossy pretends lunch is Steak Bernaise, a trick she pulls off with the addition of parsley and spinach to her mango, banana, orange, and apple smoothies. There’s something about the grassy grit of the parsley that balances out the cloying fruit.
Bossy’s recipe for her green fruit smoothie lives here. The trick is using fresh everything, although Bossy’s friend Martha froze her own strawberries, and sometimes the two use frozen mangos. The other trick is not adding fruit juice, which often contains crap even though the label says something like, “All Natural.” If the smoothie needs to be thinned out, water is just fine.
