I've been hearing a lot about green smoothies lately.
I'll admit, I had my doubts about this. I mean, I just don't typically drink things that are green! (heck, I even use yellow split peas for my split pea soup because I think it looks better!) I like green food, I just don't DRINK it.
Anyway, Monday of this week I jumped on the bandwagon. It was surprisingly good! As I was having one, my daughter walked into the room and asked for some! She loved it! We've had 3 green smoothies this week. Today we had them with a blueberry muffin and a hard boiled egg for a nice lunch.
My smoothies this week all consisted of:
Some cut up mango
Some cut up apple
About 3/4 cup baby spinach
Some water to get it all blended together. Today I used crushed ice.
Whirl it around your blender until it looks like the picture. The banana helps mellow out the spinach taste. The possibilities are endless. I'm going to try another recipe next week-This was all I had on hand this week for a smoothie.
Trust me-This was good! And my girl and I each had 5 different fruits and veggies for lunch today!
