1st attempt at a blended salad (and probably last!!- blech)

Monday, July 15, 2013

I've been reading about blended salads and thought that might give me a few more options while I can't eat solid foods. I perused recipes online and thought I had in mind what I wanted in my first attempt. I don't like avocado, so I didn't have any on hand and didn't try any even though most of the recipes I found used it.

-- carrots, tomatoes, celery, cucumber, pineapple, and spinach

-- in my 1500 professional ninja, single serve attachment

-- ended up thick and lumpy. I could drink it, but it was warm and not very good flavor or texture

-- added some ice and Ken's Raspberry Walnut dressing. Made it palatable, at least, and I drank most of it, but still couldn't finish it and I don't think I'll try another one!

Sticking to my green smoothies from now on!

    Maybe some fruit like a banana or some strawberries would've made it taste better. I've tried spinach, frozen grapes, half a frozen banana and some cucumber & it was ok. Don't give up. Keep trying different things until you find whatcha like!! emoticon emoticon
