Fruit & Veggie Smoothie

Leave a comment

I have often made smoothies with fruit, yogurt, juice and/or milk, but they usually turn out very sweet. I love sweet foods and drinks (who doesn’t?), but after cutting down on the amount I consume, I have found that I am satisfied by much less. I decided that adding vegetables would decrease the sweetness, but the idea of adding vegetables to a smoothie never appealed to me much as it made me think of tomato juice, and I have never cared for that.

Fruit and Veggie Smoothie

So, the obvious use of vegetables in a smoothie was to use those that don’t have a strong or bitter flavor. My choices were spinach, arugula, sweet bell peppers, and cucumber. I added these to some of my favorite fruits, including mango, pineapple, raspberries, blueberries, and pomegranate. I then added flax seed and equal parts almond milk and orange juice and blended to created a thin smoothie. This was one of my favorite smoothie creations, and the addition of the veggies was perfect!
