I have been reading all over the blog world about green smoothies… The idea seemed a tad peculiar, I mean who puts spinach in a smoothie? But I tend to be open minded, so I gave it a go. Here’s what I did:
175ml yogurt, I used strawberry
1 cold banana, it was very ripe
100ml frozen applesauce, just plain cooked apples really
4 spinach leaves, chopped
Blend together, and serve cold. I used my stick blender so the spinach wasn’t super fine, but it really tasted awesome. You can’t taste the spinach at all!
I am going to try have one per day, and this is a fab way to get kids to eat/drink greens.
I must apologise for the lack of posts, but I am currently so busy prepping for baby – only 5 weeks to go, that food and food blogging is taking a backseat… My poor husband is lucky if he gets a decent cooked meal (volunteers welcome…).
Please check my other blog for more on baby etc, should you be interested!
