GREEN smoothie

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I made a smoothie this morning, and did not add any blueberries or chocolate to cover the green color.

I had this in mind since I just bought bananas yesterday, and had a couple of apples sitting on the counter for way too long.


I used:
- 2 handfuls of baby spinach
- 2 apples, washed, cored and cut up
- 1 banana, peeled
- some almond milk, to make it thin enough to drink
- a handful of walnut pieces
- a couple shakes of cinnamon

OMG - The color was gross! And everything was at room temperature, so it was a tepid smoothie.
But the taste was fabulous. Like I put apple pie in a blender.
So I added a few ice cups and put it in a covered to-go cup.

I hadn't finished it by the time I got to work, so I offered a taste to a couple of coworkers who were, like me, not on vacation. One admitted it was surprisingly good. The other went screaming from the room, saying he'd changed enough diapers.

    It is an acquired ability to sense the goodness inside!

    Sounds like a decent combo. I have yet to add any type of milk to mine. It looks pretty thick.
