Pond scum: a new twist to the ICK factor

pond scum soup best

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

2 bananas

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.
