Spinach Pina Colada Smoothie + Pasta with Greens, Chickpeas and Olives

This week, I made another smoothie from our July VegCookbook, Wild About Greens, the Spinach Pina Colada Smoothie.  I liked the Green Velvet Smoothie I made last week, but I LOVED this smoothie.  I’ve already made it twice.

If you don’t have the cookbook, here’s the Spinach Pina Colada Smoothie recipe on VegKitchen.

I also made the Pasta with Greens, Chickpeas and Olives, which was tasty and filling.

If you don’t have the cookbook, here’s the Pasta with Greens, Chickpeas and Olives recipe on VegKitchen.

What did you VegCook this week?

  1. I made pureed black bean soup, bokchoy with Tofu and a vegetarian panna cota with mango and pineapple ragout.

  2. OK, I got a Vitamix, so I am all over trying these smoothies!!

  3. Made the Spinach Pina Colada Smoothie tonight. Awesome!

  4. Made something else from the book a couple of nights ago: Mediterranean Greens with Pine Nuts and Raisins (only I used dried cherries):

  5. It sounds delish, Elisa. Did you take a photo of it?

    On another note, how easy is it to clean the Vitamix?

  6. I’m a terrible food blogger, I never remember to take pictures. Although I made vegan chocolate peanut butter balls yesterday and did remember on that (but no from this book).

    And the Vitamix is SUPER easy to clean. And because it’s a plastic container, way less heavy and unwieldy than my Cuisinart Soupmaker Blender.
