An after picture of my "green smoothie"! I must have been hungry!!!
I've been wanting to make a green smoothie for a really, REALLY long time. I saw a "green smoothie chart" on Facebook the other day and looked at all the varieties.
When I was at the grocery store, I bought a small tub of organic spinach and some bananas. I had some frozen mixed berries at home in the freezer. Today I made a green smoothie. I tried it and it need a bit of sweetness to bring the flavors together. I added about a teaspoon of honey (from the bear shaped honey bottle because honey from bear shaped honey bottles TASTES much better... trust me, it's a scientifically proven fact).
Verdict... pretty darn good. The seeds in the mixed berries is always a draw back but I am excited to try more green smoothies. I think my tub of spinach should make a total of four smoothies.
Green Smoothie #1
1 very ripe banana
1 cup Simple Truth Organic baby spinach (1 to 1 1/4 ounces) from 5 ounce tub
1/2 cup water
1 cup (5 ounces) Simple Truth Organic Berry Medley (frozen) from 10 ounce bag
1 teaspoon honey
Blend like crazy in a blender, add a straw, slurp and enjoy!
My green smoothie was not "green" but I sure feel energized from starting my day with fruits and vegetables!
Here's the chart I found on Facebook. I am not sure to whom I should give credit? Maybe you'll decide to give green smoothies a try?!
