Recipe: “Orange You Glad I Went Bananas” Smootie

160525 Family 2

My mom actually turned me on to this twist.  Sure, it looks like a regular ol’ green smoothie. I get it.

But wait, there’s more…  (Did you say that in your best game show host voice?  I hope so.)

“Orange You Glad I Went Bananas” Recipe:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 large navel orange
  • A portion of the orange peel (my mom does half, I tried it out with 1/4 and dug it.)
  • Your choice of soy/nut/rice milk -enough for desired consistency

Like ground flaxseed, hempseed, a dash of vanilla or ginger?  Add in your own twist -be bold, be daring!

Grind this baby up in the blender -the longer you shred up that orange peel the smoother it’ll get.  Between the pulp of the orange and the chewy peel, it’s got a bit of mass to it.  Not as smooth as most of my smoothies, but, I tell ya what, I liked the zippiness and didn’t mind the extra texture.

(And thanks, Mama, for the fun recipe twist!)
