My latest smoothie is sludgy swamp green, but don't be fooled, it's really refreshing.
This is my entry for this month's No Croutons Required. Yes, it's usually a soup and salad challenge, but if you think about it, a smoothie containing veg is a bit like a smooth raw soup.
If you would like to join in, post your own smoothie, which should contain at least one piece of salad or veg. Think carrots, spinach, cucumber, avocado, courgette........ I have a list of ideas on my No Croutons Required announcement post, where you can also add your creation to the linky. You have until the 20th to join in.
My smoothie is made of strawberries, spinach and cucumber.
Just in case you are wondering, I got my gorgeous glass cappuccino cup and saucer from Whittard. Such an elegant way to serve a smoothie, don't you think?
