Green Keen Smoothie

Green Keen Smoothie/24 Carrot Kitchen

In the search for smoothies that are both healthy and delicious, I am happy to report I have found another winner.

Here you get two handfuls of spinach, yet you can’t taste the spinach in the final drink.  Spinach is generally mild tasting.  I happen to love spinach and love spinach salads, but if you are someone who doesn’t, this may be a way to get all the nutritious benefits of this wonderful green.  I also added fresh ginger for a little added zip.  I would consider this a mild tasting smoothie compared to the Green Kale Smoothie ,   (which was much sweeter tasting), I posted a few weeks ago and bet most kids would love it.

The great thing about smoothies is that you can add or subtract ingredients according to your tastes.

Stay tuned for a strawberry smoothie I will be posting in the future.

How great is it to eat two handfuls of spinach first thing in the morning (or anytime)?  Awesome!

Kitchen Tip – freeze your fresh ginger and it will last months.  Simply peel ginger and place in a Ziploc baggie.  It will be ready to go when you need it.  Since ginger is very perishable, this is a great way to store it.
