When it comes to smoothies, I'm a bit of a snob. I'll let my ego ride this wave for a moment but over my years of blending fruit I think I have come pretty close to mastering a damn good smoothie.
For a smoothie to be totally lovable, they have to have just the right flavour, just the right colourand most importantly just the right consistency. Perhaps 'just the right consistency' varies depending on perspective but from my perspective I like them on the creamy and dense side so the flavous linger in my mouth for a while. I like to eat it with a spoon.
Finally, to fully appreciate the blended beauty, I put it in a clear glass Mason jar. No plastic cups or ceramic mugs, please - what are you thinking!? Show some respect and pour it in a Mason jar or your favourite crisp clean glass.
Here is the recipe for the smoothie I crushed this morning:
1 bananas - frozen
2 cups frozen blueberries
a bunch of spinach
juice of 1/2 a lemon
1.5 cups of rice/almond milk
Optional - Hemp hearts
