Introducing: The Hulk

I've been keeping a secret from you all. I don't know why but I just wasn't ready to reveal it. I needed to make sure I was ready for an on-slaught of "ewwwwww", but I am finally ready.

I have been drinking smoothies, daily.
Green smoothies.
Smoothies that include 2 cups of...


SPINACH!
And yes, the smoothies are so very green. Wow, they are no joke.

"Great, whatever, green smoothies", you say. "But are the good?!"

How is this for proof? My husband likes them!!!!!!!!

We put all kinds of things in there but here are a few ways we have drunk (drank?) them:

2 cups spinach
1 banana
1 cup frozen peaches
1 spoonful natural peanut butter
1 cup water


2 cups spinach
1 banana
1 cup peaches
2 tbsp natural plain yogurt
1 cup water


2 cups spinach
1 banana
1 cup blueberries (can be frozen)
2 cups water


You need something liquid to add to make this blend well. You can use yogurt, water, and skim milk!  Easy-peasy and you can bang out several nutritional daily requirements in 1 drink!

If you use blueberries, it will turn the Hulk purple, so be prepared:)

Baby A loves these, she has them with a spoon.  They are very filling and very energizing, so go ahead, try one! Let me know what

I tried it! I was surprised at how not-bad it was. I used a banana, some plain yogurt, and about 5 or 6 strawberries just because that's what I had on hand. I just used room-temperature water though, and I thought it was better after it was in the fridge a while. I'll try ice next time. (Yes, there will be a next time!) Do you use frozen or fresh spinach? I just used some fresh I had thrown in the freezer a few weeks ago, so I think I measured the two cups a bit sparingly. (Mine wasn't quite as green as yours.)
