Hi Everyone,

Newbie here-- need advice on how to avoid brown colored smoothies.  .

By combining spinach and frozen peaches, the smoothie looks great (bright green) and tastes great. 

However,  adding frozen mixed dark red /blue berries with the spinach produces a dark brown smoothie-- horrible color and doesn't taste that great.    I like to alternate the fruits, and the dark red berries have more good stuff  in them-- but I can't tolerate the color.

How do I make a  smoothie using dark red/blue berries and spinach that comes out bright green instead of brown, and that tastes sweeter without adding losts of sweetener? .

 

Thanks for your help

Throw in a little chunk of beet, that will make it a very pretty red color and gives it a slightly sweet and earthy taste.

Thanks Sarah -- but i really don't like beets. So just when I've become adjusted to the bright green-- along comes yucky brown. Combining red and green makes brown -- so I guess I'll just have to close my eyes .
