BABY, that's the proper thing to do!
Especially when you have a busy day of volunteering ahead of you! It's my first day of volunteering at a clothing and food bank, and I am looking forward to lending a hand and also meeting some new people. Clothing/food bank usage is on the rise in Spain, which is not surprising given the economic situation here. This particular bank has even run out of clothes on more than one occasion!
An energizing breakfast is in order. A raspberry-spinach smoothie sounds good to me, and I can test out the Vita-mix's frozen veggie blending capacity.
Fresh spinach is no problem. Neither is kale (oh, how I love kale, but there's none in the fridge, and we always have lots of frozen spinach!). But flash-frozen chunks of spinach that are so hard you could use them as a weapon?
This single-serving smoothie has about three giant spoonfuls of plain Greek yogurt, a handful of frozen raspberries, a splash of orange juice, a dash of cinnamon and three spinach-bergs.
Ta-da! No chunks of spinach anywhere, and no bits of spinach stuck in my teeth, always a bonus but especially when you're meeting new people.
Now, I like spinach, but if you don't, or you know someone who doesn't, you could easily hide it in smoothies if you had a Vita-mix.
