I’ve got two super nutritious and delicious frozen spinach smoothie recipes to share with you today, plus my top life hacks using duct tape and frozen spinach…[Not together, mind you!}

Frozen Spinach Smoothie {Two Ways} Grecian Green Goddess and Ginger Blueberry Bomb

If you think I’ve gone completely mad pairing duct tape and frozen spinach smoothies in the same post, I absolutely wouldn’t blame you!

But, bear with me here.

They both have one thing in common…

A broken oven door.

The story goes something like this…

My oven hasn’t been latching properly for the past couple of weeks, so I haven’t been able to bake yummy things like this OATMEAL CHIA BERRY CRISP. {gluten-free, vegan, low FODMAP}

Oatmeal Berry Chia Crisp//The Spicy RD

And these DARK CHOCOLATE CHUNK PECAN LOVE BITES. {gluten-free, grain-free, vegan}

Dark Chocolate Chunk Pecan Love Bites//The Spicy RD

I know. Whoa is me.

So what’s a girl to do when her oven won’t work?

Make smoothies with frozen spinach of course!

Then call the appliance repairman to come fix the oven. Get it fixed. Give it a good self cleaning. Let kids bake cookies and fish sticks in it {That combo doesn’t sound good together does it?!} Get a craving for Pao de Quejo, whip up the batter, and find out that after only 2 days of working, the oven door won’t stay shut again.  Say bad words. Really bad words. Out loud. Decide not to be defeated, grab some duct tape, and do this…

Life Hack: Use Duct Tape on Your Oven Door When it Won't Shut.

Use duct tape to seal the oven door shut!

Genius right?!

  1. I was without an oven last year, so I feel your pain. But the whole thing blew up (went bang!) so duct tape – clever as this solution is for hanging doors and cursing – wasn’t going to quite do it. But frozen spinach – nutritious green ice – will do it. For smoothies that is. Frozen spinach is less commonly used here in the UK and tends to be in little blocks rather than the better choices you all have in the US,but in this instance being more like ice is probably good! Excellent post, Miss EA. Have a brilliant Fourth of July weekend. 🙂

  2. Haha, I love this post! 🙂 What can’t duct tape fix? Thanks for sharing these recipes, and I hope you have a great 4th of July weekend!

  3. These smoothies look so good! I love having smoothies for breakfast. Hope your oven door gets fixed soon! In the meantime, it looks like you’ll be having fun with your blender 😉

  4. Great recipes, but honestly, i’m more impressed with the duct tape usage here! Hope the oven is fixed soon. And I’m not sure whether or not to thank you for sharing the pic of those Love Bites 😉 I want to eat them NOW!

  5. Haha! You’re so resourceful! Now I know what to do with the duct tape that’s just been looking rather lonely and sad lately. Gasp! no oven? that would be my worst nightmare. BTW, those pecan bites looks amazing!! Love the addition of hemp hearts to the smoothie as well ;).

    1. Oh, I’m SO glad you appreciate my resourcefulness Min 🙂 Glad you like the Pecan Bites too-they are one of our family favorites. Hope you’re having a great summer!!

    1. Thanks Jeanette! I’ve always used fresh spinach in my smoothies, but somehow never thought to use frozen until recently-makes for a frostier smoothie w/o diluting it down with a lot of ice. Go greens ! 🙂
