I did it! I made the green spinach smoothie and green just isn’t a breakfast color! I discovered spinach is a very mild flavor all I really tasted was maple and peach and that’s a pretty good combination. Close your eyes and you’d never know it was green. But it is a creamy bright green. Here’s how to make it:
Go to the fridge and get out the sad looking spinach, it wont matter it’s going to be cut up into tiny shreds in the blender in a minute anyway.
Then go to the freezer and get out the container of sorry fruit and try to identify what exactly is in there. Grapes, red grapes that is , plums and blueberries.
Then think back to you first watercolor set you got as a kid and what happened when you mixed the red paint with the green paint, yup, it made mud.
Then put that container of sorry (red ) fruit back into the freezer for some other recipe another time.
While you have the freezer door open pull out a container of sorry peaches, ya know those peaches that just weren’t nice enough to eat out of hand.
This time do not think too much about you first watercolor paint set, just put about 3/4 of a cup of chopped up frozen peached into the blender,.
Guestameasure a cup of spinach with your hands and stuff that in the blender.
Pour in 3 tablespoons of maple syrup then add a little more in panic that this green smoothie will be awful and you’ll have to spend the next week trying to eat it.
Pour in a cup and 1/4 rice milk, or coconut milk or if you just have Great Value whole milk use that. Blend on high until the frozen peach chunks are nearly gone.
It’s green alright. Pour and serve.
