Smoothie of the Day: the ugliest looking, but fantastically delicious smoothie

I'm back with another smoothie today and it is not pretty, but it turned out surprisingly delicious.  I featured blueberries this time, and it shouldn't be a surprise that blueberries and spinach will not look nice together, but I did not expect my smoothie to be a green/grey sludge.  However, once I tasted it, I was in love!

almond milk, blueberries, apples, bananas, and spinach. Yum!

Doesn't this look appetizing?

I was craving something smooth and soothing, rather than tropical and citrusy, and this definitely did the trick.  Here's what I used to make about 4 cups worth of this smoothie:

1 1/2 c. blueberries
2 c. unsweetened almond milk
2 bananas
1 large apple
4 c. fresh spinach
1 T honey
1 T flax seeds

I probably could have done without the honey, but it added some extra sweetness that I for some reason wanted today.  I'm excited to try more greener, more fiber rich smoothies again this week to detox after my week full of little "treats."  That's right, it's back to work!

  1. As you can probably tell based on these comments, I'm creeping on your blog to get more ideas on how to eat cleaner this semester. I've never had Chia seeds before, but when you put them in a smoothie, do they get mashed up or are they just mixed into the smoothie?
