For my birthday, my wonderful little (as in, little sister in my sorority) got me something I had been dying for all summer:
Green Monsters, and I'm intrigued! I like spinach - but can it possibly taste good in a smoothie? But, I had to try it. So I read through about 100 different recipes and decided on my own. Smoothie #1 contained:
So, my very first smoothie turned out pretty good. It wasn't too sweet, or to spinach-y. I will definitely have to add a bit more spinach next time to see how much I can handle! However, I made about twice as much smoothie as I really needed. So next time I'll have to decrease the milk/yogurt/number of strawberries. It was the right consistency, so I'll probably reduce all three a bit. One problem: how do I use less than a container of yogurt? What do I do with the rest? Put it back in the fridge for a day or so? Will it go bad? Who knows.
Off to a conference now, with a sore throat! Lots of zinc and vitamin C and liquids for me!
