I have been wanting to jump into making smoothies for a long time now, and here is my first attempt! I learned a little bit and this tasted really, really good. Slightly Earthy, but in time I am sure these will only get better. I am trying to incorporate as many fresh ingredients into my days as possible.
INGREDIENTS for about 2 smoothies:
1 Cup Ice - (blend this in the blender before adding fruits and spinach)
1/3 pint blueberries
1/3 C. raspberries
2 bananas - cut into pieces
A small hand full of spinach, chopped or ripped into small pieces
1/4 - 1/2 Cup Pineapple Juice (or any juice you have on hand)
Crush ice in blender. Add fruits and spinach, and blend for about 30 seconds, or until completely combined. If you want a thinner smoothie, just add more juice.
This smoothie was very tasty. You get a nice taste of each of the ingredients, without tasting the spinach too much :) I am sure you could use frozen fruit as well.
I hope you enjoy these, they kept me more full than expected!
