+ frozen raw liver?
I'm somebody who HATES salad. in an effort to eat more leafy greens I've recently started making smoothies based on the ones at http://greenmonstermovement.com/ My current recipe is something like this:
1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder
1/2 cup of full-fat yogurt
1 cup full-fat milk (I'd like to replace some of this with cream when I can, maybe coconut milk...)
2 cups of spinach (raw, microwaved with the milk to wilt it)
1/2 a banana (I've got some bananas to use up, I'll be replacing it with frozen blueberries when they're gone)
1 cup of ice
makes 2 big smoothies, I either have one with a light meal or two as a meal.
anybody else doing something similar?

I often add lettuce/spinach to my whey smoothies.
Generally my smoothie is fairly basic as I don't do milk
15g natural factors whey factors
sometimes I juice a base of celery/cukes with a little lettuce, spinach, sprouts etc and use that in place of the water.
So before I learned about the PB way of life I used to make Green smoothies all the time. I would start out with about a 1/2 cup of Bolthouse Farms Green Goodness, then add Spinach, Broccoli, Cucumber, Ginger and half an apple... sometimes a carrot if I had it. Absolutely delicious!
One 8 oz serving of Green goodness contains 33 carbs, 2 g protein and zero fat. From their website:
Bolthouse Farms® Green Goodness® starts with wheat grass, spirulina, spinach and blue-green algae. We add apples, kiwis, mangos, bananas, pineapples and dragon fruit to make it a good source of iron and Vitamin B6, naturally rich in Vitamins A, C, and B12, and packed with powerful phytonutrients found in nature's most nutritious greens.
* Blend of 8 delicious juices/purees.
* Packed with 14 powerful nutrients delivering unmatched healthy green phytonutrients.
* No preservatives and nothing artificial.
* Flash pasteurized and cold-filled for longer shelf life and superior nutrition.
* 100% Juice, 100% Natural and no sugar added.
I hadn't even thought about it before, but this would be really good with some added fat, coconut milk and some whey protein. What do you guys think?
I love green smoothies as well, and after learning about the PB, I subbed out most of the whole banana I was adding for stevia (I leave 1/4 banana for creaminess though). I also use 1/2 cup coconut milk (full fat), 1/2 cup of some blend of frozen berries, and 1.5-2 cups greens (whatever I have on hand). Also, a dash of vanilla extract and a pinch of stevia. I've added bee pollen and concentrace mineral drops as well at times.
I've heard of someone adding raw frozen liver, and not tasting it (it was a small amount). I've added cod liver oil in the past which totally ruins it IMO...
Oh, I also add 1/2 cup water to thin out the coconut milk a bit and make sure it blends well enough (although it would prob be really thick and delish w/ just coconut milk!)
I'm new to PB, but I have done green smoothies. Mine are simple (usual one is 2 handfuls of spinach, banana, pear, and mango; blend with 2 cups of water/coconut water) and I started them because i also HATE salad.
I use 8 oz of homemade kefir, 1/2 c frozen spinach, 1 c fresh kale, 3/4 c froz blueberries and 1/4 banana. Delish!
Mine is: 1 c kale, 1/2c coconut milk, 1 c water, 1/2c berries(whichever I have,or a mix), 1/4 banana(sometimes) or 2T 85%-90% cocoa for a treat.
