for several years, every summer, we make smoothies every single day. then the weather gets cold again and we lose all desire for them, until the next year. this is how i started:
a couple of tablespoons frozen apple juice concentrate
we eventually realized that the juice concentrate wasn't necessary. the smoothie was sweet enough without it.
but i've been reading a couple of blogs, (namely em's) and there's been a "green smoothie" callenge recently (which i missed, and i'm not sure that i'm sad about it) which got me to thinking.
so i tried spinach in a smoothie the other day. not very much. hardly any, really.
no difference in taste.
so this morning i added a big ol' handful of the stuff - and i threw in a tablespoon of the juice concentrate, just in case. my blender can't hack this kind of blend unless there's liquid in there, so I added about a cup of orange juice (for breakfastyness).
it was actually too sweet. I may have to take out the concentrate and the yogurt next time.
so maybe i will actually end up going "green". It's all about the baby steps.
