My family loves smoothies! We have smoothies for snack once in a while, but mainly I eat them for lunch a couple times a week. It makes a yummy, healthy inexpensive meal.
I have always added spinach to our smoothies because it is a great way to get in a serving of veggies. Spinach has a very mild flavor and you don't even taste it. This weekend my husband suggested I toss some cauliflower into his smoothie. I was very hesitant to try it. I added 3 large chunks to the blender. I was surprised that I couldn't taste it either.
So today I made a smoothie for lunch and here is how I made it. Keep in mind I don't measure anything. I put it all in the blender and mix it until it is the consistency I like.In a blender-
add about 3/4 cup yogurt (I used Stoneyfields vanilla yogurt)
a handful of spinach
a handful of cauliflower
a handful of frozen strawberries
a handful of frozen raspberries
Blend and add in enough liquid to get your desired consistency. Today I used Soy milk because we are needed to get that used up. I usually add regular milk and have used apple juice before.
Do you make smoothies? What is your favorite flavor?
