|This smoothie is a beautiful bright green|
Now here's a major confession: I often pride myself on my sensible approach to diet and nutrition, but when it comes to spinach I'm ashamed to say I'm like a fussy kid! Trouble is, I just can't stand the taste or smell or texture of it once it's cooked and I find it impossible to force myself to eat it, healthy as I know it is. I can do raw baby spinach in salads and sandwiches, no problem, so one morning I thought: a raw green smoothie-well why not? And I'm happy to say I downed it all, so I'm now working on ideas for kale and callaloo, as I'm not overkeen on those when cooked either.
- Blend the spinach, dates and peanut butter together.
- Add the milk last, and use enough to make the desired consistency.
