For green smoothie newbies, Tara recommends the following green concoction:
Green Smoothie for Newbies
1 cup water
1 handful spinach
Add water and banana to blender and blend until smooth. Add in spinach and blend together.
Instead of water, I had some Green Goodness juicer from Bolthouse Farms. It added a bit of extra sweetness and made the spinach much more palatable.
My next green smoothie experiment included even more greens:
Orange, Red and Green All Over
1/2 cup carrot juice (or carrot/fruit blend)
1/2 cup water
1 handful spinach leaves
1 stalk celery, roughly chopped
1 handful fresh parsley leaves
Add liquid and strawberries to blender and mix well. Add in spinach, parsley and celery and blend on high until everything is pulverized and juicy green!
Next up I'm going to try kale. I'm not sure how that one will go but I'm willing to try it out!
