Yes, it is that time for the March reveal of the Secret Recipe Club!!
The Secret Recipe Club is the brain-child of Amanda from Amanda’s Cookin. It is based on the idea of Secret Santa where every blogger is assigned a different blog every month. We are to “secretly” stalk them (wait isn’t that what you do when you stalk someone anyway, do it secretly? Ok, a little redundant, I guess.). We search for a recipe that we are interested in and then reveal the results of what we have chosen to make on a certain day of the month. My group is lead by Angela of Big Bear’s Wife and we usually have our post on the third Monday of the month. The Secret Recipe Club has gotten so large that now there are 4 groups and it’s still growing. It is so much fun to do and I can’t WAIT every month to see what my blog assignment will be for the following month!
This month I was given…
In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend until well mixed and smooth.
Pour into serving glasses.
I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best and this Berry Blast Green Smoothie earned 3 rolling pins.
My daughters and I really liked the flavor, but we agreed that I may have added too much yogurt. I think 1/3 cup would have been sufficient. It just made it a tad bit more tart than we would have liked.
I have to say that I really enjoyed seeing all those little specks of color at the bottom of my glass as I slurped that last little bit through my straw. The combination of blue, green and red made me feel really happy that I was treating my body well with this drink.
It may not be the prettiest looking drink, but it tasted really good.
I’ll be making this again, but I will be omitting the white grape juice and using the almond milk. I’ll also cut the yogurt back to 1/3 cup.
I give you BIG baking hugs and muffins!!
