it’s not easy being green

I came across an interesting “recipe” when I was browsing TasteSpotting the other day – for a spinach smoothie (or it might have been FoodGawker).  Ugh, gross, right?

well, that looks ... uh ... appetizing?

I used one big banana, about the same volume of frozen peaches, two handfuls of spinach leaves, and enough water to get it blending, then a bit more water to smooth it into a drinkable consistency.

Shrek smoothie
not bad!

The ‘recipe’ says you can use any dark leafy green (i.e. kale) but that spinach was the least noticeable, taste wise.  I have to say that seems true.  I tasted the banana more than anything, and that was because it wasn’t quite ripe.  I emailed Ande a photo and I’m sure she almost fell off her chair.  This from me, the person who can live on toast and peanut butter, milk, cereal and chocolate.  Heh.

  1. Looks and sounds yummy to me! You usually don’t really taste the “green” indgredients in a fruit smoothie. Will try with peaches today!

  2. I actually love the color of the green. It is about the same color I painted my laundry room. (But what the heck …. I got full gallon of “mistake” paint at Lowe’s for $5.) I just had to do it. Now aren’t you going to be the healthy one. I say that after just polishing off a Snickers Sonic Blast. I think I will turn over a new leaf and start having “healthy” smoothies instead ….. tomorrow.
