Green Monster Spinach Smoothie

If you haven’t yet, vote for my Funfetti Truffle Chocolate Cupcakes in the “So You Wanna Be a CakeSpy” contest! I’m not sure at what time, but a winner should be announced sometime today:

While we are on the topic of food contests, I entered a chili contest on Saturday and came in second by 2 votes! Want the recipe? It’s the spiced up version of my dad’s chili recipe, found HERE.

But wait, there have been other battles going on lately. As you know I’ve already tackled my fear of adding spinach to a smoothie with the berry detox smoothie, but next was the green spinach smoothie affectionately named the Green Monster – you cannot hide from the spinach-green color of this one! Despite the green-ness, my reaction to this smoothie may have even been better than to the non-green spinach-containing smoothie. It was creamy and slightly sweet without a single sign of spinach, other than the color.

This was the first combination I tried, with a little pineapple in there. Second time I tried with mango and couldn’t taste much of a difference. But I have seen many other additions floating around other blogs and I plan to test them out as well. For now I was very pleased with this one and plan on making it again. Spinach, for the win!
