Stealth Shake

26 Jun

I’ve been reading a lot about Green Shakes on the media lately… shakes that include a special, very nutritious ingredient to boost the nutritional value of the shake you’re drinking.

I was intrigued to know how this concoction would taste and I decided to give it a try…  I added all the ingredients I saw in a TV segment, but I was hesitant.  So before I turned on the blender, I added some berries to make sure the taste would be appealing to me.

The result…  The Stealth Shake.  All the nutrition of the green ingredient and all the fruity taste.  A very successful experiment indeed.

 

 

STEALTH SHAKE

1 banana, peeled and sliced
1 handful of fresh baby spinach
1 handful of blueberries, washed
2 strawberries, hulled and quartered
1 cup of pineapple juice
A squirt of agave nectar
2-3 ice cubes

 

  1. Mix everything in a blender for a few minutes and enjoy!!!

 

Can you see the spinach??  And believe me – you’ll not be able to taste it either!!!!  It tasted super fruity and delicious.  A shake filled with antioxidants, this is a great way to include spinach into someone’s diet without them even know it…

    I only just happened to hear of this the other day also. It sure sounds weird, but if you can’t tell, it can only be a good thing, right?

    awesome! i would not have thought about sneaking spinach in a smoothie. perhaps i’ll supplement my guac and tomato soup this afternoon with a stealthy beverage.

    Something to be aware of is that the spinach and the banana will prevent you from absorbing the nutrients of each other… blocking both the potassium and calcium metabolic pathways.

    KFC – Didn’t know that… thanks for the tid-bit.
