I have been reluctant to jump on the green smoothie bandwagon. Very Very reluctant. Even though green is my favorite color...and I love smoothies.....and I like the idea of a huge fruit and vegetable dose....I wasn't sold on the drinking of a green concoction. I have to admit, I'm a convert.
I'm not sure what made me decide to go for it! Maybe it was seeing it in a couple other blogs. Maybe it's the dearth of fruits and vegetables this time of year.
This needed to start with a small amount of spinach and larger amounts of fruits, so the combination was:
handfuls of spinach
a couple tablespoons of my homemade plain yogurt
Blended all with an immersion blender. Guess I don't need a fancy expensive blender for this after all.
It was delicious! I didn't taste the spinach at all (even though I really like spinach)....which may be a good thing in a morning beverage. I was hoping this would give me super powers.....I felt the same on the first day of this, but it must be good for me!
