Well I woke up late today but I didn’t let that stop me from creating havoc in the kitchen! I got my baking hands ready and started away on muffins.
Cooling off on my fancy (and huge) CSN stores rack that I reviewed here a while back.
Since I didn’t think that would be enough for me to do in one whole hour, I decided to create something that I have never created before.
What does it consist of? Prepare yourself ;)
- 2 small handfuls of spinach
- some milk
- 3 ice cubes
- half a frozen banana
- 1tsp cocoa powder
Now you’d be surprised, it doesn’t actually taste like spinach. Clearly I haven’t used a blender in years because once I drank it, it had chunks of ice and banana, so it wasn’t mixed up as well as it should have been. Plus I think next time I may add orange juice or vanilla extract.
Few things I disliked but will still continue to make. Can’t give up after a first try:
- I hated the foam on top.
- The after taste actually tasted like barf. But it could have been something else – because it didn’t happen for a while after? That’s what I’ll keep telling myself for now anyway.
- Why is it really dark? Other Green Monsters I’ve seen online are a lot lighter.
We went to the market just as it was closing and picked up some fresh salmon from my Boyf’s swim coach, who always gives us a huge deal. I ended up making the salmon a different flavor, but you couldn’t really taste it all that much. I mixed a bit of milk, cream cheese and dill together to make a sauce topping for the salmon — but it wasn’t that flavorful. I also added some yellow curry powder to the veggies and made some basmati rice to go with it. Scrumptious meal and very filling.
