Apple-Banana Smoothie


Smoothies are a great way to use up small bits of food. The other day I wanted to make Apple-Maple Syrup, but I didn’t want the apple peel to go to waste so I used it to make a smoothie. I also had a little cucumber and raw broccoli left over from previous meals.

Ingredients

peel from 1 apple

2 small pieces of broccoli

small handful of raw, frozen spinach

3 slices of cucumber

1 banana

1 tablespoon protein powder

chocolate almond milk

  1. Put the apple peel, cucumber, broccoli, and spinach into the blender.
  2. pour some chocolate almond milk over the foods, and pulse until everything is broken up.
  3. Add the other ingredients, and more milk if necessary.
  4. Blend until well mixed.

Notes

  • Using odds-and-ends of vegetables in smoothies does not really change the taste much, and it means you’re not wasting perfectly good food. It also adds extra nutrients.
