Green Smoothie

I saw a recipe for a green smoothie in a magazine yesterday and thought I'd give it a try because I had all the ingredients at home. As Ross said recently--I've never met a recipe I really liked. I made changes. I'm really surprised at how much I like the smoothie.

Green Smoothie

1 1/2 c. soy milk (we always have vanilla soy milk in the house)
1/2 c. orange juice (I had mango orange Nantucket nectar, so that's what I used)
1 c. loosely packed spinach
1/2 banana
1/2 c. cucumber
1 piece finely minced candied ginger
1 Tbl. flax meal

Throw all ingredients into the blender and puree until smooth. Much yummier than it looks--really.

The end-product looks a lot like a recipe I just saw in the April 2011 Self magazine.

That's the magazine I saw the recipe in. I added the cucumber and ginger. I liked it so much I made it again yesterday. It makes enough for 2 smoothies, but both only added up to 350 calories so I had one for breakfast and one at lunch.
