Why does my smoothie taste weird today? Is it the arugula?

The only thing I did differently was used a mix of arugula and spinach instead of just spinach. Is it the arugula? It has what I would describe as a kind of bitter, plastic-y taste with an almost coppery aftertaste. I also accidentally dumped a bit more ground flax seed that usual but I don't think that would affect the taste much?

  • If you are used to using only spinach yes it's the arugula. I was used to spinach only then tried adding in other greens and could never get used to arugula.

  • It's probably the new food you added.

  • I've never tried arugula, but I've heard it can have a bitter taste.
