wasn’t green either. But at least it wasn’t brown. I like this whole idea of drinking your greens. If you’re going to have something cold and sweet anyway, why not get some extra nutrition out of it? I’m sure a lot of these concoctions taste quite dandy, without any noticeable hint of leafy veggies in them. The two I’ve made have been ok, but I’m not dressing them up at all or really adding any sugar or fat. They’re good enough to drink, but I wouldn’t give one to somebody craving a chocolate milkshake or anything like that.
Anyway, here’s what I had today:
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 bunch of salad greens (spinach, etc.)
- 2 tsp ground flax-seed
- 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk (plus a wee bit more)
I think the banana yesterday gave it a creamier taste. Also, yogurt would be good instead of all milk, or even some coconut milk if you can find the lower fat stuff. A scoop of peanut butter would probably be a good addition as well.
What’s been going in your blender lately?
