Banana — Bok Choy Smoothie

Wow, is this a neat taste treat!

With a fridge full of fresh greens, I almost had to go 'eeney, meany, miney moe' to choose which crisp, big, dark leafy green would have the place of honor in my morning smoothie.

Look who won!

For a rich, creamy drink, I've found using a combination of fresh and frozen bananas along with a little water, makes a great base for a green smoothie. Not too sweet, yet sweet enough to offset the sharper taste of dark leafy greens.

For a 12 oz drink, I used:
One large fresh banana
One frozen banana
8 oz of filtered water
3 - 4 large leaves from the top of a bunch of bok choy
(save the crisp white bottoms to toss in a salad)

Simple and satisfying !
