We loved this smoothie. I used a left over orange in place of the tangerine. Was a great refreshing drink with BLT for a light supper.
Be careful with flax meal as flax seeds become rancid quickly upon grinding into meal.
I usually use frozen mango in place of the pineapple, but both are good. Like Kathie, I also use a combo of spinach and kale. And one more thing…use toasted flax seeds. Sooo good!
I used a combination of spinach and kale which I had blanched and frozen in smoothie-sized batches. Also I used raspberries rather than pineapple. The color isn’t quite as pretty, but it was delicious and very satisfying.
When you freeze the spinach / kale do you just stick it into a zip lock? How long does it keep for?
