Another recipe from the internet, it's said to be one fantastic green smoothie! Zaar does not recognize one of the FIVE ingredients to be included in this recipe, so here it is -- One Aloe Vera leaf, filleted!
- 2 bananas, frozen
- 1 orange, large, peeled (leave white pith on!)
- 1 cup orange juice, fresh (more if needed)
- 2 cups baby spinach leaves
- Put all ingredients in blender & puree at high speed.
- Pour into 2 tall glasses & enjoy!
Yes, Sydney Mike! A winner. I look for good sales on bags of navel oranges, and keep a bag of peeled chunks in the freezer (along with nanner chunks, peeled when they've begun to freckle) so that I can always make one of these when the mood hits. And what a terrific use for the last of a bag of spinach. The mood hit about five minutes ago, and I'm sipping one as I type this! (And thanks, JanuaryBride, for the idea of turning them into popsicles! We're expecting our first grandDilettant(e) this summer, and I've begun a file of Sneaky Vegetable recipes---this goes in, for sure!)
Yummy, I just made this! What a great way to get your iron and Vitamin C!
I made this exactly as written, but the smoothie was a bit too thick so I added a bit of ice water to the blender mixture. As with most fruit smoothies, you can't really taste the spinach in this drink. This was the perfect way to use up some of my salad leftovers and oranges. Tip: Chilling the oranges in the fridge beforehand and using frozen bananas, makes for an icy smoothie without having to use ice cubes.
Thank you for the recipe!
this was great! You could not even detect the spinach leaves. I also added more orange juice than called for and I added in blueberries. Devine!
