Slimy Spinach

There is so much you can do with slimy spinach. One favorite of mine is to put it into smoothies. You can't taste it and it is an easy way to get more greens. Not an appetizing color however. Rinsing the spinach will take away some of the slime/bitterness.

Favorite Smoothie

1 c. apple juice
1/2 c. frozen strawberries
1/2 c. frozen peaches
1 banana
handful of spinach
1/2-1 c. ice depending on desired thickness

Add to blender in order and blend. Drink with a straw. :)

Often I substitute the strawberries and peaches with 1 c. frozen Dole mixed fruit from Sam's.

The health dept. is going to come and arrest you.

do you remember the time you tried to sneak carrots into my smoothie and i could totally tell? hehe

That's because I tried to sneak in too many...more than the recipe called for. :)

see what happens when you get greedy? :)

p.s. to pass this off to the men in the family, food coloring is needed.
