I have grown quite fond of green smoothies and I find that it is the simplest way to get my fruits and vegetables in my diet. I like spinach the best in my smoothies because I cannot taste it. I do not add any sugar to this smoothie because the banana and the blueberries have enough natural sugars. If you want to add more sweetness add a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup. These additives will change the taste of the smoothie a bit. You can also substitute the milk for almond milk or any other milk substitute.
Milk/ Almond Milk – 3/4 Cup
Baby spinach – 1 cup
Banana – 1 frozen
Blueberries – 1 cup, Frozen
Blend all these ingredients well. If you find that it is too thick add another splash of milk. Serve cold.
If you have kids and they love smoothies and hate vegetables, this is a great way to give them a little boost. It tastes so good that it is hard to believe it is healthy! I peel and freeze my bananas when they start to go a bit ripe. This way they are perfect for the smoothie and I do not have to add any ice that waters the taste down. Try it once and see how you feel about the spinach in there.
Hope this will be a household favorite!
