But this post isn't really about that. I don't eat enough veggies. Do you? Well my aunt Lucy (and all of my mother's side of the family, really) is a health nut. She posted something on FB one day about a "green smoothie". I was super skeptical at first, but I checked out this website and decided I would give it a shot. Before I tried it, I told Amanda about it - and she was immediately on board. In fact, she had the stuff at home so she made one pretty much straight away. She called me and told me how good it was. Hm, maybe I should go ahead and try it then. Amanda also made it sound easier to make than going out and buying bunches of different green veggies, she just opened a bag of spinach for salad and dumped it in. Okay so here's the recipe that she and I adapted:
A bag of fresh spinach, 3 bananas, 3 small fuji apples (cored and chopped, peel on), and I used OJ, Amanda said she uses whatever liquid she thought would be good: green tea, water, apple juice, etc.Ladies and gents, let me tell you...this smoothie tastes like a banana, oj, apple smoothie. NOT AT ALL LIKE spinach!! And if you don't know about the nutrients found in spinach, you should check out these websites: Wholesome Baby Food, Self Nutrition Data, and Wikipedia.
Seriously - go now - try one. I'll wait. And once you do, leave me a comment and tell me how yummy yours is. :)
