Green Smoothie – or brown?

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Pics as promised of this mornings smoothie in the making.

Why do they call them green smoothies? Ours starts with oranges and apples for juice. We like to peel the oranges with a vegi peeler to just take off the zest. Use whole fruit if you can fit it in the juicer.

The juice is good just on it’s own if you don’t wont to go further, or are in a hurry, or have run out of spinach!

We decided to put berries into this mornings mix. Should be yummy.

Don’t forget to wash the spinach! We used english spinach today. Baby spinach or kale works well too.

Who knows their colour theory? What does yellow, green and red make when mixed together?

Yes, brown!

green smoothie?

looks ... umm ... yummy?

Tastes great though. Brian adds a raw egg to his portion and blends that in too. This makes it lighter, and fluffy.

A great way to start the day. Quicker than bacon and eggs, and keeps you going longer!
