Spinach Leaf Miracle

Something amazing happened while I was blending the breakfast drink this morning. A spinach leaf made it through three minutes of high speed blending that liquified all the other ingredients without any damage at all!

Here's a short video where I tell about it--

Here's what was in the blender load:
2 cups of almond milk
1 cup of spinach leaves
1 cup of frozen blueberries
1 large banana
various supplements and powders

The almond milk goes in first, then the spinach, then the banana and blueberries on top of the spinach, pressing the greens down against the blades. Then those blades whirl around for about three minutes, liquifying everything--usually! But this time, when I took my first sip, a whole spinach leaf was on my tongue!

Isn't it wonderful that something can make it through such destruction and blending and yet come out unscathed on the other side?


  1. I tried your above recipe with a small change in the ingredients. I didn't use a banana, instead 2 cups of mixed dark berries (blueberry, blackberry, cherry & raspberry) and a plant based protein/greens powder I like to use. It was yummy! Thanks for the recipe. :-)
