I'm a smoothie lover and so are my boys. I have tried a few green monster smoothies and about puked myself. I don't want so be sucking down something that taste like a salad at 7am.
I saw this recipe on Krysta's blog, My Life in Food. (You should go there and browse. While drooling. Then cook every recipe she post.) This smoothie has spinach but doesn't turn out green. Perfecto.
4 cups baby spinach leaves, loosely packed
2 cups frozen mixed berries or just blueberries works fine
1 banana (she suggest a frozen banana and thats what I used)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (you can add 2 teaspoons if you really love it)
(I also added a splash of orange juice to make it mix easier.)
Mine aren't as pretty purple as hers, but I am not the chef she is either. And I dumped a bunch of random frozen berries that were left over in my freezer. And they were still delish.
