Weekends are wonderful for so many reasons…. completing to do lists, longer gym workouts, no work emails, AND more time to try new recipes in the kitchen!
I’ve seen green smoothies all over Pinterest and blogs lately, so I finally decided to give it a go. Just like everyone claims, you can’t taste the spinach and they’re very filling!
A few simple ingredients and a blender are all you need. Next thing you know you’ll be sucking down a tasty green creation, feeling stronger and healthier than before, ready to make the most of the rest of your weekend… or at least that’s how I felt! :)
– Two cups of fresh spinach
– One ripe banana
– 3/4 cup of milk (you can substitute with almond or soy milk)
– Frozen fruit (mango, pineapple, and strawberries)
Blend it all up (I use my Magic Bullet… which is also great for making margaritas hint hint) and enjoy!
Ta Da! A tasty green spinach smoothie that tastes like a fruit smoothie, but has an extra healthy kick… Here, try a sip!
Any smoothie ingredient suggestions? I’m thinking of trying one with avocados, but I’m a bit worried how that would taste.
