Sunrise Green Smoothie


We've been having lots of smoothies lately for breakfast with the warm weather.  I saw this recipe and thought, I wonder what a smoothie with spinach is like.  There seemed to be enough fruit in it to mask the vegetable taste so I thought I would give it a try. Plus I can always use more fruit and veggies in my diet.  In the recipe they use a fancy juicer/smoothie maker, but since I just have a regular blender, I ended up needing a little more milk, and a little less frozen stuff for my blender to be able to do the work.  So below is the amounts I used of everything which I suggest for a regular blender!

Sunrise Green Smoothie
From: Hell if I Gnaw
Prep time: 5 min

1 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (probably could use regular milk, but the vanilla almond adds a nice sweetness)
1 1/2 - 2 cups spinach
1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 banana
2 Tbsp ground flax seed

1. Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.  (if too stiff add more almond milk) Serve!

Advertising clearly hasn't increased prices. As just a single example, look at the incredible things you can buy for outrageously low prices. A name brand Top 10 Best Hand Blender Reviews is $15. Wow. It has specialized plastic, shaped and sharpened blades, and a motor that runs at high RPM yet you can chop vegetables with it.

So, basically, there's no evidence to back up your claim. Why not? Advertising increases sell through - more units. And mass volume reduces price.

That said, I advocate for manufacturers to slow down the “dash to the bottom” in pricing. It will backfire in consumers because quality goods will eventually begun to disappear. And dashing too low eliminates opportunity for important new product advances because new innovations require enough margin to pay for the engineering.
