The title for this post is failed recipe #1. I added the #1 because I am certain that I will end up with many more failed recipes along the way. Because of this recipe, I need to add a new rule.

I have said it before, but I didn’t learn from my own advice. So now I have to make it a rule: Never add too much of an ingredient to start with, especially if it is an ingredient you have never used before. Remember, you can always add more of an ingredient as necessary, but you can never take it back out once it has been blended up.

Today I used almond milk for the first time. For me it was way too powerful because I added way too much of it to my smoothie. It could have been a great addition, but for me it became an overpowering taste in the smoothie.

It was supposed to be a good, healthy, green smoothie for my breakfast. I guess it was. But the flavor didn’t quite fit my bill. If you enjoy the taste of almond milk a little more than I do, here’s a recipe you might enjoy:

1 1/2 cups almond milk
1/2 to 1 cup water
1 cup spinach (pack it into the measuring cup)
1 banana
1 cup pineapple (I used frozen)
1 cup mango (I used frozen)

Remember that I taste, invent and try all of the recipes that I put up on here. I really don’t want to promote a recipe that isn’t up to my standards. I didn’t like it, so I won’t include it in my recipe collection. Maybe with time the taste will grow on me.

Try it, tell me what you think of it. Anything suggestions for improving it? I plan on making another using less almond milk and seeing how it goes.
