horrible smoothie

#1 Postby bpmojo » Fri Mar 07, 2008 11:39 pm

so my internship supervisor gives me greens from her garden and I was mindlessly making a green smoothie today and must of thought was I was using was some type of kale, but after I tasted it....yep...very very strong mustrard greens I believe.

The sweetness of the fruit in it hit first but then the horrible spiciness/bitterness kicks in...ugggh......I choked 90% of it down though :shock: I just shuddered thinking about it.

Mustard greens are pretty hard to stomach...collards are a bit mustardy but very palatable compared to mustard greens...I've made that mistake myself and I wish you the best in your recovery.

yea i can handle loads of collard greens in a smoothie no problem, espeically if you toss a lemon in there as well really covers up any questionably bitterness but mustard green on the other hand..... :oops:

Haha, I like it that you put this in the recipe section, something for others to try out if they want a really horrible smoothie

I used mustard greens once a year ago in a green smoothie before I knew what they taste like. I had quite a surprise also.

similar experience this morning, i was tired and grabbed a bag of frozen wheat grass from my parent's freezer instead of kale shreds, horrible at first taste, but by the end of the shake i started to like it and want more
