I finally did it! I've seen these all over blogland and have been intrigued from day 1 but never got around to trying one. Until today.
Why "green" vs green? Well as you can tell from the pictures, it's more of a mauve smoothie. :) I took baby steps and didn't go too crazy with the spinach this first time, but I'll keep adding it as I make more of these.
Raspberry Mango Spinach Smoothie
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup frozen unsweetened raspberries
1/2 cup frozen unsweetened mango chunks
1/2 cup fresh baby spinach
1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
Put ingredients in blender in order listed. Pulse until blended to your liking. Enjoy!!
Verdict? This was great! I did have to add a little Splenda to sweeten it, but I most definitely did not taste the spinach. If anything, I tasted the protein powder, so I might nix that next time, since I'm already getting protein from the milk. The consistency was very thick, almost like a milkshake, so I've been eating this with a spoon.
Now I definitely know what I've been missing out on! This is a great way to get some dairy, fruit, and veggies knocked out, so expect to see these more often.
What's your favorite green smoothie concoction?
