The Spinach Smoothie Revealed

OK, this looks pretty good, right?

But, how could something so colorful turn into this nasty concoction?
I don't know actually....  I have to say it tastes pretty good though and you don't taste the spinach.  My friend Cyndi told me about adding the spinach because it was flavorless once mixed with all the other ingredients. I was skeptical but decided to go for it.  She was right.

So this smoothie is my version of one from http://www.foodcoma.com/ by the way, her smoothies look A LOT prettier and actually are a bit more cleansing because she doesn't put protein powder or milk in them.

So I just take a handful of spinach and whatever fruit on hand.  I had fresh pineapple and frozen strawberries.  I added about 6 oz of milk (non fat) and then I added 1.5 scoops of vanilla whey powder for protein.  I had a sample of the Visalus brand so I used it and found it to be very good.   I whirred that crud up and downed it like a stiff drink.

Of course, I was hungry again in like 10 minutes and have proceeded to eat 5 pieces of birthday within the last day.  Cause let's face it, I would much rather being eating this:

My mom still celebrates my birthday like she did when I was young with cake, banners, and gifts.  Actually though it looks like she messed up the numbers on the cake because there is no way in heck I am 41.  Whatever. As if.  I'm a little offended she thought that.
