We love our green smoothies. We play with lots of vegetable and fruit combinations, but they still taste fairly similar day to day.
It was time to shake things up a bit.
Introducing… the Hot Pink Smoothie.
This is a super-well-known smoothie (if you are into this kind of thing) made famous by Robyn of Green Smoothie Girl. I have tweaked to our liking and after a few days of trials have come upon my family’s version of the classic. At first it was a bit beet-y for me, but my tastebuds adjusted quickly and now I really enjoy this smoothie’s taste and texture. It is filling, super sweet and (most importantly, right?) really pretty.
