I think by now everyone has heard of green smoothies. You know, a smoothie with green veggies added to it. I've tried lots of variations on this recipe and must tell you that broccoli is not good in a smoothie. It tastes too much like broccoli. Which is fine, I mean, I like broccoli and eat it often. But not in a smoothie.
My favorite green addition is frozen spinach. I like it better than fresh because I think it breaks up finer. You can't taste it. And it's packed with nutrients.
This is what I made the other day. The vary from smoothie to smoothie based on what I have in the kitchen at the time.
* 1 cup yogurt (I used blueberry but any flavor or plain will do just fine.)
* A few splashes of milk (I used almond.)
* 1 tablespoon blueberry-banana jam because the jar was about empty (this is optional)
* 1 over-ripe banana
* 1/4 bag frozen spinach
Directions:* Blend everything together. Serve over ice.
I don't always add jam. But there was just a little bit left in the jar and I was in a clean out the fridge mood. It adds to the sweetness but is certainly not necessary. Especially if your banana is brown- those are sugary-sweet all on their own.
