|Green Cake Batter Smoothie|
Cowabunga!! This stuff is amazingly good! It tastes just like cake batter ~ no fooling!! This smoothie gets it delightful green color from spinach, but just because you make this with spinach, don't let it turn you off. You can't taste the spinach, at all. Indulge your inner kid & have this green concoction for breakfast or a treat. Ya gotta love a green smoothie when it tastes like cake batter.
The following recipe was adapted from one by Mama Pea, over at ~ Peas & Thank You. If you haven't been to her site, go check it out, it's awesome!! She makes the most amazing vegan food & smoothies. Plus, she is funny as all get out. After reading one of her posts, I was inspired to rush right into my kitchen to make her Cake Batter Green Smoothie, but I was missing a bunch of the ingredients she called for. I just used what I had on hand that sounded like it would create a similar taste. Not having the exact ingredients for a recipe will NEVER stop me. As Monty Python once said: Adopt, adapt & improve!
I must say, the shocking green smoothie turned out fantastic! Of course, Roy wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole, because of the vibrant green color. Sucker! His loss was my gain ~ all the more for meeee! J tried it & liked it. He won't pass up anything that tastes like cake batter...and you shouldn't either. Thanks for the bit of green inspiration, Mama Pea!
