Spinach was my planned green, as we already had some in the fridge. Thanks to those who responded!
Here's what I had on hand:
Sooo I started off with a handful of spinach.
I added most of a 6 oz container of Dannon plain Greek yogurt.
I topped it off with a handful of sliced strawberries.
To give my immersion blender something to work with, I threw in a splash of skim milk.
Verdict: a little too bitter.
I added 2 more strawberries, and a handful of blueberries.
Still a little bitter for my liking, I added 2 more strawberries and a splash of almond milk.
Not bad! Not green either, but I promise it contains greens. Looks kinda like chocolate milk.
1 large handful of spinach
6 oz Dannon greek yogurt
1-2 oz skim milk
2 oz almond milk
1 handful of blueberries
On Tuesday (July 5th) I made my second green smoothie which included:
-one overflowing handful of spinach
-two handfuls of blueberries
-about one small banana (frozen, cut into pieces)
-6-8 oz almond milk
No adjustments needed! This one came out way more green than the last, but did not taste much like spinach at all. It did taste very much like almond milk, blueberries, and a little bit banana (in that order).
While there are tiny flecks of blueberry skin and spinach bits, they didn't get stuck in my teeth (hooray!)
I feel like I eat enough leafy greens anyway, but this is a great way to squeeze some more into your diet. Word on the street is that kale is good in smoothies too, maybe I'll try that next...
Have you ever made a green smoothie?
If not, would you try one?
What's your favorite combination(s)?
