My First Green Smoothie Experience
Thursday, April 18, 2013
Happy Thursday, all! How is everyone doing today?
I got up this morning (after skipping my workout - will do it tonight!) and went to the dentist for a cleaning. Great oral health - woohoo! I got home and had just enough time to experiment with the fruits and spinach we got for green smoothies. I'm not sure how I feel about it.
Ingredients: Fresh spinach, frozen mangos and strawberries, canned peaches (couldn't find frozen).
Appearance: ICKY! Brownish/green. Not appealing.
Smell: Sulfur. Gross. Terrible. I don't know why. I don't know if it was the mixture or if I should have tossed that spinich (it looked fine!!).
Spoon dip taste test: Bearable
Poored into cup w/ lid to mask smell. Took a sip. Okay, not too bad. ***lightbulb***
Add a packet of the Crystal Light (peach mango) so I can at least suck this thing down. AMAZING! Tasted like a Crystal Light smoothie. Awesome. Still smelled icky.
I managed to suck it all down and I'm still alive to write about it! If anybody has any clue why it might have had such a terrible smell, please enlighten me! Or if anybody has a killer recipe including some/all of these ingredients, please share!!
