When you need a little boost of fruit servings, it's a good idea to whip up a smoothie. They are so easy to make and customizable to whatever you have on hand. Since we have a huge stock of frozen fruit in our freezer from our various picking ventures over the summer, we always have a variety to choose from.
This morning I wanted to make a "green" smoothie. That usually consists of throwing in some sort of green leafy vegetable along with the fruits. For this smoothie, I threw in spinach along with blueberries, pineapple, strawberries and soy milk. I also love spirulina (dried sea algae) in my smoothies - although it's known for it's health benefits, I add it for the taste.
So, while this is supposed to be a "green" smoothie, why is it so purple? Did the blueberries overtake the spinach and spirulina? Should I be adding more spinach (I used a handful)? I guess it doesn't really matter what color it turned out because it was an awesome smoothie.
