Green Salad Smoothie

Now we are talking……

For as long as I can remember, the thought of a salad smoothie has always intrigued me.  I mean, I love all salads…..so why not blend it all together just for a change?  My typical salad generally involves an array of colours, and colours that if blended together probably would not be the most appetizing site.  Probably would taste amazing, but definitely would not be too appealing to the human eye!

Hence, this gorgeous all Green Salad Smoothie !!! It really could not be easier. I totally used all green salad ingredients (from my fridge, in fact that is how I generally throw together a quick smoothie)…….  I even added in some green grapes!  I just had to!  They are green !!! I really have been enjoying fruit in my salads lately, especially lovely fresh summer fruits. Don’t laugh, but I added spring onions too!  There really is not much more to say about this simple quick healthy green yumminess of a smoothie.

  1. Another great QUICK dish!! You may want to consider adding flax seed and/or unflavored whey protein. One of the big problems many people experience with a pure carbohydrate “meal” is that spiked insulin response. Adding some healthy sources of fat and/or protein modulates this response.

    I can certainly tell you enjoyed that drink!!! 🙂
