The Ins & Outs Of Making A Healthy Smoothie-Blog 2
Saturday, February 06, 2010
So my dear Spark friend TRAVELNISTA offered me a suggestion to getting in my f/v each day: Make a smoothie with banana, mango and spinach. Sure, no problem. You won't taste the spinach she promises. So without hesitation I head for the kitchen. Emma has been saying she's hungry for a bit now anyway.
I gather my ingredients. Since I do not have mango I add a whole banana, frozen strawberries & peaches and a few handfuls of spinach. I also add some milk for my liquid base. I figure it's a safer bet than using the apple juice. I add all my ingredients into the blender. Then after a bit I notice the spinach needs to be stirred. So I take out my spoon and decide I'll just stir it up a bit-no, I didn't turn off the blender to do this.
So this is what my spoon looks like now...
Good thing I wasn't really attached to that spoon
After checking through the smoothie mixture for spoon pieces, this is what the finished product looks like:
This is what my sweet child looks like consuming said product:
You can see the smile in her eyes as she drinks it!
Please note the greenish mustache she is sporting!
After drinking it she says, "Mommy you made a GREAT smoothie!"
I just love my daughter!
