uups! that was not liked

i figured, that those green wonderful carrot tops should be eaten and wasted in the compost bin. i read that the greens are healthy and nutritious, and it seems perfectly ok to make smoothies with them. well as it turns out, mama is maybe a bit a nerd in regards to healthy foods...
carrot tops, milk, vanilla, a bit brown sugar (as my oldest suggested, that some sweetener would help), and orange juice. liked the taste, except that after adding the sugar it was too sweet. and the kids, well they didn't like it.

the following picture sequence is showing it clearly. and a big bravo to amos, as he drank the whole glas, even though the greens were still big enough to keep hanging between the teeth. and that was the big issue the kids had. it was not smooth at all, but grassy!

so here we are, trial and error, i need new ideas for carrot tops, any one know of a yummy recipe?
