For Christmas I got a BlendTech ultra, amazing, could blend cement, blender. Because of it, I can get rid of our regular blender and some other gadget we have in our cabinet because this thing DOES IT ALL! So instead of doing the fun thing and pulverizing a bunch of nails/screws/glass/rocks right off the bat, I did the sensible thing and blended the shit out of some fruit.
Behold, the Mean Green...
That's actually my whole lunch...nom nom nom. Although, grapes with seeds really piss me off.
The Mean Green is seriously GREEN and surprisingly filling. Wanna know what's in it?
2 cups (or big handfuls) baby spinach
1 Granny Smith apple
1 tbsp ground ginger
I used crystallized ginger, because that's all I had on hand, but I am going to use some fresh ginger next time. Bet it gives it a little extra zing ;)
Since I didn't participate in National Margarita Day yesterday, I sipped on this and pretended there was a little Patron in it, and that I was on a beach with the wind blowing through my hair. I suggest you do the same.
...although, I would not advise putting Patron in this for reals...barf.
