Vibrant Green Spinach Smoothie
I have seen numerous posts about the infamous spinach ‘monster’ smoothies that I thought it is time I tried it. It took me quite some time trying to get convinced – only by reading about it – that it actually doesn’t taste spinach. Well, you know – spinach here is a very disputed veggie, as I’m certain most Hungarians would directly associate it with the creamy spinach puree (spenótfőzelék) that was (maybe still is?) a usual participant in the school canteens. Now, as the usual kid is not a big fan of veggies, most of all in a scary green puree form, it certainly left memories better not touched.
So I actually got around buying a quite big pack (that was the only one available) of baby spinach, that eventually ended up in not one but 4 smoothies! I have to admit, for me, immediate success (definitely NO spinach taste), for the boyfriend a little less enthusiasm (“so if it doesn’t alter the taste, why do you add it?”) – I couldn’t convince him how good is that for us 🙂 Anyway, as it was a milestone in my foodie life, it deserves to be posted with a couple of pretty pictures, because admit it: it really has a nice color!
Ah of course, it is not only spinach 🙂
