Smoothie Extravaganza: Swamp Monster

It's getting hotter outside and these smoothies are tasting pretty good!

Today's featured smoothie was inspired by the "Swamp Thing" smoothie at an old-school health food store in Charleston named "Books, Herbs and Spices." In its heyday in the early 1990s before health food hit the main stream, this little shop was a local hangout for those who sought better health. And their Swamp Thing smoothie was one of the most popular items on the cafe menu. It's still one of my favorites.

2 frozen bananas
2 cups vanilla soymilk
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1-2 tablespoons Greens+ powder (or any spirulina powder)

Add all ingredients into a blender. Puree until smooth. Serves two.

Grade: *****

This sounds delicious, Jill, now that a farmers market has opened by my house, I've been trying to think of creative smoothie recipes! I'll have to try this out. Do you think the lowfat style soymilk will work just as well?
