I ran across a recipe today that I wanted to share. It’s called Pond Scum Soup. If that doesn’t entice you, you’re probably normal.
But it appealed to me in a morbid kind of way because I avoid normal whenever possible.
Apparently someone in Denver came up with what is billed as “nature’s perfect drink.” It has few calories and all the nutrients you need for a whole day’s worth of vitality and good health. I actually tried it today. My friend, Putt, and I toasted each other in shades of green, almost exactly the color and consistency of a stagnant fishing pond.
She suggested we add some rum and change the name to rum scum.
Here’s the recipe – it really is delicious. You could freeze it and create pond scum popsickles for your children. (Or maybe, you still want them to like you.) Try it before you pass judgement.
2 cups baby spinach leaves
12 ounces pineapple juice
1 apple cored, but with skin still on
1/4 cup wheat germ
5 ice cubes
Mix together in a blender and blend until smooth. Makes four servings with 176 calories, 4.4 grams fiber and only 1.7 grams of fat per serving. It is loaded with potassium and vitamins B-12, B-6, A. C. D. and E, calcium, folate, magnesium and other good stuff.
