Collard Green Smoothie

Banana Strawberry Collard Green Smoothie

I got this from

http://www.healthdiaries.com/eatthis/banana-strawberry-collard-green-smoothie-recipe.html

I changed it a bit, though. I put in 3 bananas and about 2 Cups of strawberries. I put in as many collard greens as I could fit in there (probably more like 3 cups). I put in ice instead of water, and I added lots of Equal. To me it would not have been sweet enough without the Equal. I used fresh strawberries, not frozen.  You might not need the ice if you use frozen berries. I always put whipped cream on top.

It is tasty and healthy...it does taste a little odd, but not bad. It just looks weird because it's so green.

Here is the recipe from that site.

Since I just wrote about green smoothies, I thought I'd give an example of an easy recipe.

I love the combination of bananas, strawberries, and collard greens. I use frozen organic strawberries. It's easy to keep frozen berries on hand so you'll always have them ready for your smoothies.

Ingredients
1 banana
1 c. water
1 c. strawberries
4 c. collard greens

Directions
Blend the banana and water. Add the strawberries and blend. Add the collards and blend until smooth.

Gluten free. Not sure if they are low carb or not.  They are very healthy, though!

Enjoy!
