“What the hell is that?!” you might ask. No, it’s not mud. Tammy’s recommendation to try green smoothies got my curiosity going. So I grabbed a handful of greens and some fruit and went to work.
As you can tell, it’s not really green. I probably didn’t do it right, since instead of looking at Tammy’s recipe I just went into the kitchen and did my own thing… In all fairness the actual product does appear much greener than in the photo. Oh well.
While at first I could still taste the “greens,” I can’t honestly tell that they’re in there now having drank a little more than half of the smoothie. It’s not bad (and obviously much healthier than, say, a strawberry shake from Burger King). I think the smell of the greens may actually be the reason I could “taste” them at the beginning, but I guess you can’t let your nose deceive you.
Anyway, here’s what I did:
- Handful of mixed salad green
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 1 lonely banana
- 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk
- 1 squirt of honey (or agave to be an honest vegan)
Throw it all in the blender. Blend. Pour. Drink.
