So I don't know if it's because I am nursing my baby or what but I have been craving spinach like crazy! I even had a bowl of fresh spinach for breakfast the other day. I have been sneaking it into most of our meals as well. Chopped up in mac and cheese, pureed in spaghetti sauce, that kind of thing. I have read on Facebook from my friends that are drinking "green smoothies" and I thought I would try to make my own. I have a small personal blender (a knock off of a magic bullet) and thought that would work OK to make it. So I put in a banana, some frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, orange juice, probiotic powder and a big ole' handful of fresh spinach. I blended it up as well as I could and took a drink... YUCK!! It was awful! I read that drinking veggies is better so you can get the max amount without having to eat veggies all day long but man that was not what I thought it was going to taste like. I also think I should save up for a Vitamix or something like that so I can get a better blend. This smoothie has good sized leaf chunks in it. YUCK!!
Next time I will just eat a big bowl of spinach!!
