“Eat your spinach, you no good infink. Eat it. EAT IT. Eat it.”
— Poopdeck Pappy
I’m not a big fan of salads even though everyone things I must be because I am a vegetarian. Nope. I can’t find a dressing I like that isn’t five billion calories. Now, if you add nuts – I just move the leaves to get to the pecans. Then I want more pecans. I’m not good about getting my good greens in a salad.
Then I found smoothie recipes using spinach all over Pinterest. But with every healthy make-at-home smoothie recipe, there were bananas in it. I don’t like bananas in everything. Or peanut butter. Just makes me want peanut butter sandwiches.
So I tweeked a concoction and made it my own, and I love it! Try it. It looks fizzy and disgusting, but it is good for you and tastier than dry salad.
Spinach Smoothie of Awesomeness
- 6 cups spinach
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 6 oz plain nonfat Greek yogurt
- Splenda, to taste
- Blend almond milk, Splenda and yogurt until liquid.
- Add spinach in batches, making sure it is incorporated between batches.
- Poor into chilled glass.
The important thing is making sure the drink is cool – not warm or room temperature. Changes the whole experience, believe me.
