Last night I YouTubed "Best Green Smoothie" and learned quite a bit. Of course there are greens, but the fruit you choose is quite important. A very ripe banana or pineapple will add enough sweetness to counteract the bitterness of the greens - making it more palatable!
I decided it was time to finally master a green smoothie.
And it turned out GREAT! Way better than I had expected. It tastes sweet, with a hint of greens, and the aftertaste is not bitter because of the banana. I have a feeling this has changed the way I will think about smoothies. YUM.
Classic Green Smoothie (serves ~ 1-2)
1 cup spinach
1 cup kale
1 ripe banana
1.5 cups chopped pineapple
2 tbsp. unsweetened coconut
2 cups water (feel free to use coconut water instead)
1/2 - 1 cup of ice
Blend away until completely smooth and serve in a mason jar ;) Enjoy!
