|Ekayani's Test Run with Green Monster Fruit & Veggie Shake|
Do's and Dont's
The recipe is easy enough yet I realized that for a smoother blend, taking the time to remove the stems from the spinach I used would have been worth it. Luckily, it was only me drinking this "test run" so I was the only one who got greens caught in her teeth! Be sure to pulse the banana, strawberries or grapes with water in the blender first as this will prevent the shake from becoming too frothy. You don't need more than 60 seconds to whip this up!
10 to 12 oz of cold water
A handful of stemmed and finely chopped spinach
A handful of stemmed and finely chopped kale
1/2 cup of fresh or frozen strawberries
1 fresh banana
Pulse the banana,strawberries,greens and water in blender till smooth.
Strain through a sieve
Put juice mixture back into blender and discard the pulpy matter.
Add 1 scoop of French Vanilla Nutrimeal.
Blend for 45 to 60 seconds.
|Bottoms Up! You will want to use a sieve to remove the green pieces.|
I thought this recipe was great! It was truly satisfying and easy to make and made two servings.
Tip: If you want you can add a scoop of Fibergy for a little extra fiber. French Vanilla Nutrimeal is a gluten free non GMO soy based product.
