No, really. I’m not making this up. Last week, I came across this recipe.

It’s essentially a spinach smoothie. Yeah, sounds appetizing doesn’t it? I was dubious. Koby thought I was crazy. But the lady seemed to think it was amazing, and Koby can never finish a bag of spinach fast enough, and really is trying to eat healthier (college took it’s toll on his diet and body. Pizza, Jack in the Box, hamburgers, and chicken strips can really only go so far.) Therefore, I decided we would be adventurous. I tossed a ripe banana in the freezer to save for the weekend, found the random carnation instant breakfast that mysteriously ended up in my family’s pantry, and visited the ever dangerous bulk bins at Winco to pick up flax seed (and gummi worms, and gummi sharks, and gummi butterflies, and gummi grapefruit? Why not! And chocolate covered peanuts, and mints, and…)

I went shopping for this.

And came home with these. And I refuse to apologize.

There’s a banana hiding in the back, but it’s sliced, frozen, and slightly mushed from travel. Hush.

The moment of truth.

Thus, at an unholy hour (7:20am) before moving furniture into OUR APARTMENT (no more roommates!) we played mad scientist. And, despite misgivings, it’s actually good! He liked it, I liked it, and the three boys roped into moving furniture for us (who were even more suspicious) declared it “Not bad!” with evident surprise. It tastes like peanut butter and banana, not salad. Go figure. So… recommended!

Only… even splitting it between us, we barely finished our own portions, so I also recommend cutting it in half unless you have a partner in crime.

If you like healthy recipes, I recommend visiting A Full Measure of Happiness, which is chock full of healthy recipes. As you might have suspected, todays adventures are brought to you by my Pinterest addiction.
