|Spinach Citrus Smoothies, dark chocolate garnish|
Today was a beautiful March day. 76 degrees and a bright blue sky. After a nice bike ride we found ourselves looking to cool off so what could be better than smoothies?
For me there is no single ingredient more flexible than spinach. I use it in bread, lasagna, pizza and yes, smoothies. In these smoothies the spinach provides a nice balance to the citrus.
* A couple of oranges ( peeled of course )
* A cup or so of apple juice
* A cup and a half of frozen mango
* A cup of frozen pinapple
This is pretty straight forward. Jamb it all in the blender and let it rip. If the blender is getting plugged up add a bit more apple juice and stir in with a long flexible spoon.
