My sister kept telling me about these smoothies that she's been whipping up, and they honestly sounded disgusting and I could not bring myself to making it. Then Lindsey visited her in Utah a few weeks ago, and was a guinea pig for the concoction and she loved it! Three times, in the past three days, we have now made the Popeye Smoothies, as I've renamed them. Julie refers to her chilly beverage as an elixir, which suits her Wicked passion. Christopher and I photographed the recipe to show everyone, and if you're brave, try for yourself. Step 1: add 4 ounces of white grape juice concentrate and 4 ounces of water to the blender
Step 2: add 2 (heaping) cups ice cubes
Step 3: add 2 (heaping) cups fresh baby spinch leaves
Step 4: add 1 stick butter (just kidding, that WOULD be gross) it's a pineapple wedge
Step 5: add one (ping-pong ball sized) lime--the seeds, imperfect looking peeling, pith, pulp, and all
Step 6: put the lid on tightly and blend until smooth. It makes about 24 ounces, serve immediately. It's surprisingly refreshing, very green, but doesn't taste a thing like spinach! It's really sweet too. Maybe even too sweet. I would possibly balance out the amount of white grape juice and water ratio to adjust that slightly.
