Winter Green Smoothie

Now come on...admit it...this looks delicious? lol
Day two of the Green Smoothie experiment and today's smoothie was a Winter Green Smoothie. It sounds far worse than it actually tastes believe me. And please don't worry I won't be posting a daily smoothie as you have to rotate them so tomorrow we'll be having the Parsley Passion Smoothie again and then on Thursday we'll having this very attractive smoothie and then Friday we'll be having a Good Stuff Smoothie. lol. At weekends we'll be having our usual cooked breakfasts and I don't mean the fried bacon and eggs kind. Yuck. I mean Tofu omelette, scramble or fritatas which we love.

This morning's smoothie was quite sweet compared to yesterdays but had a bitter edge so My Love added a banana to it. The recipe was supposed to do 4 servings but that clearly wasn't the case so My Love added more spinach and water to pad it out. It was quite a pleasant drink really and the fact that the berries are frozen made it chilled and that was so much more palatable compared to yesterdays.

So day two done and all's well. And hopefully our viral nasty will disappear faster?

The recipe for this smoothie is from Victoria Boutenko's Green Smoothie Revolution
Winter Green Smoothie Makes 4 servings
(Recipe from Green Smoothie Revolution/V.Boutenko)

1 cup of frozen berries 
2 cups fresh spinach
2 cups of water
1/4 inch fresh ginger, or to taste

1 banana (wasn't on the recipe but was added by My Love)

Place all the ingredients into the blender and blitz until smooth. Enjoy!

NB: To spread this across 4 servings MY Love had to add extra water and spinach.
