Have you tried green smoothies?
I hadn't yet until this morning. We have a lot of kiwis right now, and I decided to toss some into the blender. I also threw in an old-ish pear, a few spinach leaves (I've read about them in green smoothies and wanted to try, but only tossed in a couple in case the texture was off putting) and a dash of cranberry juice. Not following any particular recipe, just tossing in what I had and thought might taste good together.
And guess what? It was actually pretty good! The spinach texture was certainly different from the Jamba Juice style smoothies I was used to, but not at all off putting. And I couldn't even taste it over the kiwi and pear.
I unfortunately didn't take a picture, but as I experiment a bit more with fruit smoothies maybe I'll share some more recipe combinations.
If you want to replicate what I threw together, I used:
-about 4 large spinach leaves
-cranberry juice (I didn't measure, but I would guess it was roughly 1/4 cup)
Just blend it together, and enjoy!
If you have any favorite smoothie combinations, I would love to hear them. I'm always looking for healthy and easy snacks.
