We renamed RAVE Smoothie #5 “Mangorugula” Smoothie in honor of it’s two main ingredients: mango and arugula. This smoothie, unfortunately, was very bitter and earned only a 4 from me and a 3 from my husband. I made this one late at night and forgot to snap a picture, but it was very very bright green, much like the “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Kiwi” Smoothie. I would drink this smoothie again if I had to, but some of the other ones I’ve made were much tastier, even Baby Poop Smoothie 🙂
Wednesday before last, I made Smoothie #10 from the RAVE book. We really liked it and renamed it “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Kiwi” because it really did taste like it.
My husband rated this smoothie an 8 and I rated it a 7. Thanks to his rating, I’m going to include the recipe:
- 5 kale leaves
- 3 apples (I used Granny Smiths because we like it tart!)
- 1 tsp ground flaxseed
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- 2 cups water
The directions are simple here: just stuff it all into the blender and turn it on! As you can see in the picture, the kale in this smoothie gives it an astonishing green color. Those are vitamins, baby!
