Mud Smoothie

It just looks like mud…blueberry flavored mud, doesn’t it?

While it may look a little weird it’s actually really delicious! The combination of blueberries and banana is super interesting and I ended up loving it.

Obviously you can add or take out whatever you want for this smoothie – totally up to you – but here is the recipe I made the other morning. If you end up making it and changing something let me know so I can try it too!

MUD SMOOTHIE

1 handful fresh spinach

1/2 c blueberries

1 banana

4 oz vanilla yogurt

1 c milk

Blend it up for 30 seconds and there you have it, your very own mud smoothie 🙂 You could always add protein powder or chia seeds for an extra kick. Enjoy!

Spinach Burgers

Just trust me. While this meal has spinach as the main ingredient, it’s surprisingly delicious! I’ve put my fair share of spinach into smoothies and know you can’t really taste a huge difference but I was still a little skeptical about making these burgers. Let me just say, this recipe made 5 burgers — and we ate them all!

I found the recipe on this blog but I made a few changes. When I got it all mixed together it didn’t seem moist enough. Mr. Layland suggested we add another egg, so we did! Adding the egg was perfect and the patties held together really well in the pan.

I blended the spinach in my Ninja and hand mixed in the other ingredients. I’m sure I could have just thrown it all together in the food processor…but I didn’t. Next time! I’ll definitely be making these again 🙂

SPINACH BURGERS

1 bag fresh spinach, blended

2 egg whites

2 whole eggs

1/4 c diced onion

1/2 c shredded cheese

1/2 c Italian seasoned bread crumbs

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp garlic powder

Blend spinach until shredded.  Add other ingredients and stir to combine. Shape into patties and cook on the stove over medium high heat (about 5 minutes each side) until firm and golden. Enjoy!!!
