Green Smoothie

I imagine it’s called this for a reason. In my spare time, as you may well have noticed, I like looking at food recipes and wishing I were rich (because if that were the case, I could eat the world). Unfortunately, you can’t have it all in life. :[ So! I came across this recipe and really liked it because it’s so effing simple and adaptable. :D I’m almost certain that this came from ohsheglows.

I guess to some, it may look…”different” (or unappetizing, depending on whether or not you want to euphemize it.) When I first made it, Nadia retreated upstairs because she didn’t want to look at it. But! If you like the color green and aren’t a huge fan of raw spinach, this is the way to go. :O (I like spinach either way, but in this thing, you can’t taste the spinach at all.) I’m pretty sure it’s the banana that’s masking it all.

Basic Green Monster

Please ignore the drink recipe on the actual cup since it’s irrelevant, although I doubt you can read it. :O The cup was from Mekala! :D

Ingredients
-2 cups spinach
-1 cup soy milk
-1 banana
-1 tbsp flax seed

Instructions
1) Add to blender in this order: flax, spinach, banana, milk.
2) Blend everything on highest setting for about a minute.

So, to be fair, I didn’t have flax here, so I went without. The milk can be any kind of milk (rice, almond, soy, regular, 1%, 2%…), but I’m a fan of soy milk since I may be mildly lactose intolerant (thanks a lot, Asian ancestry). You can also add ice (or a frozen banana!), but I’m used to not having that since our ice machine at home has never worked. You can also add all kinds of other fruits. Up to your personal preference! :O
