Green Smoothies are a Bad Idea

But if you simply must drink one, I've figured out a way to make it less painful: add frozen mango.

It turns out that frozen mango is a strong enough flavor that its tartness mitigates a lot of the dry green flavor from the spinach. Adding some plain yogurt increases the masking effect.

And if you're going to go healthy, you might as well go whole-hog and add in some ground flaxseed.

So here it is: a recipe for a ridiculously healthy green smoothie that's almost enjoyable. I give you: The Ridiculously Healthy Smoothie:

The Ridiculously Healthy Smoothie
-1 cup frozen spinach
-1 generous cup frozen mango
-2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
-1 cup plain yogurt
-1 cup milk
Blend and enjoy! Or, at least, try to. :)

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
