So for a year or two now I’ve been reading about so many others making smoothies with spinach in them.
At first, I have to admit, it sounded gross. I am not one to mix certain things together. Like I don’t want mandarin oranges in my salad. And I don’t want cranberries in my chicken salad. I was certainly skeptical of spinach in a smoothie.
But I have to say, I’m sold on this idea now.
I gathered up the ingredients and brought out the blender, which never usually sees the light of day for smoothie making unless it’s summertime.
Frozen strawberries, mangos and pineapple and then a large handful of raw spinach.
I also added some ice and light apple juice.
Green gobbley goop.
But when it was all blended up, poured out and slurped up, it was really tasty!
Seriously Spinached Smoothie
1 c. frozen fruit mix of your choice (I used strawberries, mangos, pineapple)
1 c. spinach leaves
4 large ice cubes
1/2 c. light apple juice
1 Splenda sweetener packet
Add all ingredients to the blender and zap! Blend in to frozen green goodness.
Pour out, slurp up!
It was the perfect consistency and just as sweet as I needed it to be.
And even though it’s wintertime, and I never have smoothies in the winter because I am too cold natured, I would definitely whip up another one of these anytime to enjoy! That’s what electric blankets are for, right?!
Spinach Smoothie Satisfaction!
