I think I am one of the very last people to jump on the green smoothie bandwagon. Am I right? Like many others, I was probably a little hesitant about trying a drink with spinach in it. I thought spinach was made for salads, like this one, and not for smoothies. But I was definitely wrong. This smoothie tastes just like a tropical fruit smoothie and nothing at all like spinach. Perfect for getting picky eaters to incorporate more vegetables into their diets. Although it didn’t really work on my boyfriend or the little girl who gave it a thumbs down when she found out that there was spinach in my “cool” green smoothie.
Although the recipe below details out exactly what went into my smoothie as pictured above, it can easily be adapted based on your own preferences and what you currently have in the refrigerator. When it comes to making smoothies, it is hard to go wrong. I also love adding almond milk and even almond butter to my smoothies for a little something different. What are your favorite ingredients to put in smoothies?
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 banana, frozen and cut into chunks
- 5 strawberries
- ⅓ cup honey flavored greek yogurt
- 1 cup ice
- Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Puree until smooth and creamy. Pour into glasses and serve.
