Groovy Green Goddess aka Shrek Smoothie
Check out this super yummy breakfast. Your family will never guess the mysterious green ingredient. Tell them you used green apples and green grapes. Then after they've finished add, "Oh yeah, and some spinach!" Thanks to www.crunchydomesticgoddess.com for the recipe.
Serves 2, don't try to double it - it won't fit.
1 banana, cut in chunks
1 cup grapes
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 apple, cored and chopped
1 and 1/2 cups fresh spinach leaves
1/4 cup flax seed or wheat germ
Optional - ICE. Gives it a nice chill.
Directions: Place the banana, grapes, yogurt, apple and spinach into a blender. Cover, and blend until smooth, stopping frequently to push down anything stuck to the sides. Pour into glasses and serve with funky straw. Heck, why not watch Shrek?
