My green monster virginity, that is 😉
I can’t believe I’d never made one until yesterday. In my defence, I’ve only just got a proper blender but I think there was also a slight thought in my head that how could any drink/pudding made with spinach not be revolting?
But I thought all the people I see blogging about them can’t be wrong so yesterday, I took the plunge:
I just made a small one to start with… 50ml coconut milk, 50ml skimmed milk, half a banana, a handful of spinach and a heaped quarter-teaspoon of xanthan gum to thicken.
And… well they’re not joking when they call it a green monster! The resulting slime looked like something you’d find onthe top of a pond.
It’s almost luminous. Having some serious doubts, I poured it into a posh bowl, took a deep breath – and dived in.
And wished I’d done it sooner 🙂
Amazing texture, great fresh flavour. I half-wrote this post yesterday and had put “I feel a new addiction coming on…”
… and that was confirmed this morning, when I made another one, with all skimmed milk and some frozen raspberries:
Even better. Tomorrow’s is in the blender as we speak!
