We’ve been getting great feedback from people receiving our ‘Smoothie a Day‘ emails. Everyone loves getting new ideas for delicious smoothies every day. It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut.
So Tim said to me, “why not make a smoothie every day and post a photo of it to Instagram?”
Houston we have a problem.
It would be wonderful if they were a lovely vibrant green every time.
Think back to your first ever art lesson about mixing colours and you’ll know why.
Add a couple of strawberries or raspberries to your green smoothie and get, well, a muddy brown!
This morning I had an EPIC smoothie. There were a few strawberries in the fridge. An overripe banana. A handful of spinach and a spoonful of yogurt left in the tub. I added a teaspoon of peanut butter and two teaspoons of Lean Greens. I then blended it all with some coconut water for consistency. It tasted DELICIOUS! But green + yellow + red = pale brown that looked a bit like dodgy baby food.
I love a good smoothie, and I don’t worry too much about the colour. But I won’t be Instagram-ing my creations everyday!
If you get our daily smoothie emails I hope you continue enjoying them. Even if the smoothies are not always a beautiful emerald green!
PS If you know the trick to Instagram-worthy smoothie photos please do let me know!
