Sometimes my recipes run afield. Take today’s smoothie experiment. I was going for a mostly green beverage, but turned out a thick, semi-drinkable salad in a glass.

green smoothie

I mean, there’s a lot going on in here:

  • carrot greens
  • 1 kale leaf
  • parsley
  • fresh ginger
  • chia seeds
  • lemon
  • orange
  • coconut water

The color is beautiful, it was indeed flavorful, but as soon as I took a sip, I had a feeling that it wasn’t going to go down as smooth as I hoped. I managed to drink half of the mixture (quickly!), but struggled with the remainder. I put this mixture into my Nutribullet, but if I ran it through a juicer, I’m sure it would have been delicious. I would’ve lost a lot of fiber from the pulp left behind, but it would have been, most likely, more palatable.

Or maybe I could’ve tweaked this recipe to make it gel. Maybe an apple or a pear to sweeten and smooth? Maybe skip the carrot-top greens? More liquid?

Not every smoothie or juice comes out perfectly. But that’s OK. I’m willing to experiment.

What recipes have you botched but later remedied?
