I’m not really sure why, but lately I’ve been curious about green smoothies. Not only is it a convenient way to get in some of your daily vegetables, but I imagine they’d be a nice break from your typical strawberry-banana variety or whatever your personal standby is. I think I’ll have to make one in the near future to see if I like them.
Here’s a recipe I found online that might be good:
* 1/2 banana, cut in chunks
* 1/2 (6 ounce) tub vanilla yogurt
* 1/4 apple, cored and chopped
* 3/4 cup fresh spinach leaves
Place the banana, grapes, yogurt, apple and spinach into a blender. Cover, and blend until smooth, stopping frequently to push down anything stuck to the sides. Pour into glasses and serve.
I think it might be good to use frozen bananas to give it a thicker texture, but I guess it depends what you’re in the mood for. Adding pear might be great too. I think I’d also use plain yogurt, since most of the pre-sweetened varieties out there tend to be a little too sweet, but either way, it sounds good to me.
