Ultra-Delicious Vegan Smoothie
I hate spinach. Hate it, hate it, hate it. But unfortunately this green enemy of mine is loaded with lots of healthy nutrients. 100 g of raw spinach contains 188% of our daily need of Vitamin A, 604 % of Vitamin K, 47 % of
Vitamin C, 49 % of Folate, 20 % of Magnesium as well as other important nutrients. Quite impressive, this green, little sucker. So, the health nut in me had to find a way to include this powerful plant on my plate on a daily basis.
But the thought of chewing on these boring, earthy leafs turned me off big time. There was only one solution. I had to create a recipe that includes lots of spinach without tasting unappealing, and spinachy.
Here is the result. A super yummy green smoothie that tastes like pineapple and passion fruit. You can't taste the spinach at all. Yay! This recipe is vegan, super simple and only requires 4 ingredients. Here's what you'll need to make this healthy, colorful treat:
50 g (1,8 oz) raw spinach (remove stem)
595 g (21 oz) pineapple
3 passion fruit
160 ml (2/3 cup) water
Cut your 3 passion fruit in half and add their wobbly content to a blender. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix 2 minutes, until a smooth mixture develops, and the passion fruit seeds are ground up into super fine particles. If you don't mix long enough the seeds will be too crunchy. So the longer you mix, the better. That's it - enjoy!
