This is something I've been meaning to do for ages, since reading this post. We had some wilting spinach that needed using, so I unpacked the smoothie maker (that we inherited when my sister-in-law moved to Australia, woop!) and made a yummy (and healthy) smoothie. Ours had: One glass of Almond Milk (we are trying Eleanor on this - wondering if she may be lactose intolerant), one banana, several gigantic leaves of Perpetual Spinach, a handful of frozen blackberries (picked last summer), some chopped parsley (yep, sneaky!) and some fresh pears from a local tree. Um. Yum.
It didn't even look too bad, thanks to those blackberries! It wasn't super sweet, but I like it that way... And best of all, I froze some of it for ice-block 'treats' (E's favourite). Yep, bribing my kid with spinach and parsley. Awesomeness.
