I Can't Believe It's Not Split Pea Soup!

This is what I've been sort of living on the past few days since I've been on primarily liquids/soft foods I can swallow and not chew. This is my "Green Smoothie", a very simple and easy recipe that the VitaMix blends beautifully! It, however, looks like split pea soup to me. It is a nice thick consistency, very creamy and I love the flavor! I have played around with how much spinach I add and I can add almost a cup (I have fresh frozen spinach leaves I've been using) and still think it tastes really good. (I even gave some to my son - who hates spinach - and he thought it was good!)

The amount of frozen fruit is what gives it the thicker consistency, so I just add pineapple chunks until I get it to the texture I want.

1 cup milk
1/2 cup frozen strawberries, thawed if desired
1/2 - 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
1 small banana
1/2 - 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks

Add ingredients to blender in order listed, blend thoroughly and enjoy!

Makes 1 large cup.
