Frog Nog (True Green Smoothie Recipe)
We absolutely LOVE green smoothies around here. I usually make one with lots of berries which turns it purple or pink camouflaging the greens. When I use fruit that is light colored and the smoothie remains green we call it “frog nog”. My boys love the name and the flavor and therefore slurp it down! Watching my children drink up all those healthy greens and fresh fruit makes this mama happy, you know?! And it also makes up for the lame lunch of nachos that I provide sometimes:)
PPS Also here is my orginal “green smoothie” recipe post
Frog Nog (Green Smoothie recipe)
submitted by Melanie
2-4 cups spinach or other greens (I use 4 cups organic baby/ or kale)
1-2 cups of water (depending how thick you like it)
1-2 bananas (I use 2)
1 heaping cup frozen pineapple chunks
1 cup frozen mango, peaches or other light fruit (I have used strawberries)
1 Tb honey or agave (optional for sweetness)
First I fill my trusty blender (I use the Blendtec) with spinach–lots of it! Then I fill the container up to the 2 line with water filling in around the spinach. Pulse to blend into a bright green water.
Next add your bananas, frozen fruit ans sweetener, if using. I push the ‘whole juice’ button and the blender purees it all for me into a wonder smooth green drink. What ever blender you have, just be sure to blend it for a good amount of time to make sure it is as smooth as possible. Pour into glasses and serve!
