mmmm... green smoothie...

Yeah, it looks a little scary...
But yesterday I wanted to try it out as an afternoon snack.
This recipe called for spinach, strawberries, banana, and orange juice.I was a little nervous about that combo, but I have tried many a strange new thing when exploring healthy eating! I didn't have orange juice, so I subbed a couple of clementines and half a cup of water. After blending, I have to admit I was a bit hesitant to drink this!
But actually it was quite tasty!
Here is what my 10 year old thought of "the Incredible Hulk Drink" after making a hideous face when he saw the strange green stuff in his cup:
Yep, every drop was gone!
I think it would have tasted a little sweeter with actual orange juice, but otherwise, I will be serving this at snack time again!
Here is the link to the SP recipe if you want to try it yourself:
By The Way: the "incredible Hulk" name came from a comment under the recipe, I thought it was a great way to think of this smoothie!
