So I’ve decided that it’s time to expand my repertoire when it comes to smoothie making. For a long time I’ve shied away from more exotic ingredients, and by exotic I mean vegetables. So this morning I looked in the fridge and came up with a little something different.
Celery Appleberry Smoothie
Makes one 8 oz smoothie.
- 1 stalk celery, washed and chopped
- 1/4 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/4 cup frozen raspberries
- 1/4 apple, chopped
- 1/2 banana, chopped
- 1/4 cup water
I have a GREAT GE single serving blender that I got for 20 bucks at Walmart. Use your full size blender if that’s what you’ve got.
Just spin for 2 minutes, to make sure that everything is well blended!
MUCH better than I would have thought! The celery adds a little zip, but isn’t overpowering.
I love my veggies, but I’ve been in a veggie rut for a while. Everything you read says how great vegetables are in smoothies, but I’ll admit that though I’ve tried it at restaurants, I’ve always maintained a fruit only smoothie regimen at home.
This is one that I’ll have again. Without a doubt.
