Smoothie Fail? Don't throw it away! (What to do with a green smoothie so bad you can't even choke it down)

Smoothie fails.  It happens.  As you may have guessed, we drink a lot of green smoothies around here.  So much that we almost have it down to a science.  Yet every once in awhile, one just doesn't work.....for example, it turns out an Acai smoothie with fresh mint leaves is neither delicious OR refreshing, who knew?  There's also been a few fails with grapefruit, mustard greens, and rutabaga (shocking, I know!)  

No matter how bad it tastes, you don't want to throw all that beautiful produce down the drain.  But you probably don't want to drink it, either.  If you don't enjoy your green smoothies you'll stop making them.  So here's the solution!  Simply pour the awful mixture into an ice cube tray, freeze, and then dump in a large plastic bag to store in the freezer.  Add 1 cube a day to your green smoothies until they are used up.  It will help to chill your smoothie and you won't detect the flavor.  Easy enough!
