“Egg Nog” Arugula Smoothie

12 Apr

So I went to the farmer’s market the other day and bought some really nice arugula for a bunny I’ve been feeding that hangs around outside our house. Yes I do realize how spoiled the bunny is…but it is pretty much the cutest thing ever…and it apparently loves arugula, so it works out.

I used some of the arugula in an experimental smoothie. It ended up being pretty damn good with almost an egg noggy characteristic to it.

Here’s what I put together:

1-2 oranges
1 banana
vanilla yogurt
arugula
soy milk
a little bit of agave syrup
ground ginger and nutmeg to taste

Blend well until the arugula is well mixed in and the smoothie has a bit of a frothy texture. Admittedly hardcore egg nog fans might scoff but I think it is a decent healthy variation! Enjoy!!
