My first experience with a green smoothie was at a raw foods class I took in Kansas. While I doubt I could ever eat 100% raw as my instructor does, I learned a great deal in her class.
The smoothie she made though was not my favorite from the foods we sampled. Taking a sip and then having to chew the lettuce greens was less than appetizing to me.
Yesterday I made my first green smoothie and found it superb.
Here's how I made mine-
1 cup milk (you can use any liquid)
1 cup organic salad greens
I liquefied first. Then blended:
4 slices of frozen peaches
1 scoop strawberry jam (HFCS free) for extra sweetness.
It made two large glasses and I was stuffed afterwards.
