Sludge Smoothie - No, really, it's GOOD! Gluten free dairy free

 Don't be scared of the end look of this smoothie because the taste will win you over! Here is a great way to combine raw greens with your fruits and delight in a near pudding treat. I could see putting this in the freezer for 30-60 minutes, and eating it with a spoon, or thinning it by adding ice to create a different texture all together. Don't confuse my love for this insanely thick and creamy texture as is, though.  Here is how you make it. First, get your VitaMix ready (or high powder blender).
  • 1 fresh mango, 
  • 1 small fresh banana, 
  • 1 Cup frozen strawberries, 
  • juice from 1/2 small lemon
  • Spinach to fill (not packed, just dropped in)
as pictured.
 Next, pour
  • orange juice to cover banana layer.
  • Vanilla Almond Milk to cover the strawberry layer
Ready? Blend! You can see the final color is reminiscent of swamp green, which may not create a favorable visual response, but give it a taste and you'll see why this is so fantastic. I had a little extra, so I froze them into Popsicle for the kids. Enjoy!
