Power Smoothie

Well after last week’s recipe of Spinach Pasta Salad I had a ton of spinach left over. From there I have decided to try anything I could to use it up, including testing out a spinach smoothie from Tastes Better From Scratch.

Will the taste of blueberries be able to overpower it, or will the spinach surpass everything?

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of Orange Juice (I don’t like orange so I substituted with Apple Juice)
  • 1/8 a Cup of Whole Grain Oats (I didn’t have any so I used Quick Oats)
  • 1/4 Cup of Greek Yogurt
  • A Bit of Vanilla Creamer
  • 1/2 Banana
  • 3/4 Cup of Frozen Blueberries
  • 1.5 Cups of Baby Spinach Leaves
  • 1/2 Cup of Ice

Directions:

  1. Add all the ingredients in your blender and blend. If too thick, add more juice or water.

Thoughts After Cooking:

I don’t really like using bananas in my smoothies because all the smoothie tastes like is banana.

So I added some more blueberries and a little more yogurt. After that I thought it tasted wonderful!

You didn’t taste the spinach at all or the oats. In fact, I think I’ll be making this tomorrow morning as well.
