After making the new logo (so exciting!), I wanted to make a smoothie that matched the delicious looking drink I added to the design. Rummaging through my cabinets and pantry I found a glass and straw that fit the bill. Then all I needed was a new recipe. The end result was a delicious dairy-free green smoothie option to add as one of my go-to recipes.
Obviously, it had to be a green smoothie to match the logo design. So I started pulling out some ingredients that I thought would fit together. I wanted it to be sweet and tasty with a super-smooth texture. Spinach for its amazingly rich green color. Also, I love spinach. Banana for a punch of sweet flavor. Pineapple because it always seems to pair well with spinach. And it looks like I have some mango chunks sitting there in the freezer as well.
So I threw it all in the blender along with some white grape juice for a little more sweetness in the mix. Liquids first, unfrozen ingredients next and frozen on top. Remember when you are getting the spinach to really pack it in to the measuring cup. If you don’t there will be a lot less spinach in your smoothie. And that will be sad. You can’t really see it in the photo, but there’s a banana between the frozen pineapple and the spinach.
I poured it out into the cup. And I messed it up. It got all on the sides of the glass and would’ve made for an ugly picture. Luckily I have more than one of these glasses, so I got to try again. The mouth of the Vitamix spout was just too wide for me to pour it without some ending up high inside the neck part of the glass. I failed the second attempt too. Even an attempt to wipe inside the mouth of the glass with paper towels didn’t really work.
So out came the funnel. I grabbed a third glass and used a metal funnel to get the smoothie inside without messing things up. Finally I was able to add the straw and snap the picture. Let me know, did I do a good job of matching the smoothie in the new logo?
