3 cubes frozen spinach

1/2 big fresh mango

2 rings of pineapple

1/2 cup of orange juice

I’ve been meaning to try a green smoothie with spinach for a while but never had fresh. I do not know why I never thought of using frozen until today. It turned out delicious. In the States, I put kale into my green smoothies thanks to Jennifer for serving them up to her kids every morning. How bad could they be if kids were drinking them, right? Right. If the ratios are correct, they are wonderful! Since I can’t find kale in Kuwait, spinach will do just fine. Normally I would add ice but silly me didn’t fill up the trays.

That looks weirdly amazing! I’m going to go freeze some spinach and try this out tomorrow 🙂 I don’t have pineapple rings, so I think I’ll substitute an apple plus some pineapple juice. I’ll let you know 🙂

p.s. I LOVE the new blog look!!

Thanks, I like it too! I’d just use fresh spinach if you have it and throw in an ice cube or two to cool it down and thicken it up. Do let me know how you like it! Green smoothies tend to be a turn off to people simply because they’re green. My dad will drink them if I make them for him. This was my test run before serving them up to Andrew! I <3 smoothies! 🙂

Sorry, Hon, but I just can’t get past the fact that it looks like grass that’s been put in a blender. I’m curious, can you taste the spinach or just the fruit and juice.

Response:
If it’s made properly, you can’t taste the spinach. I am not a big spinach fan so I wouldn’t like a smoothie that tasted predominately like spinach. This one tasted mostly of mango and pineapple. I think smoothies, like all cooking, are an art form and take practice to perfect.
