It seems that you guys liked my post about the Zucchini Fries. I often try to prepare new foods, so I wanted to share my Spinach Smoothie recipe. It’s green, delicious and nutritious! Don’t be afraid to try it.
A Handful of Fresh Spinach Leaves
6 oz Yogurt OR a Cup of Vanilla Almond Milk
100% Maple Syrup (Optional Sweetener)
First, Blend the Spinach with the milk. This will prevent chunks of leaves in your smoothie. Then add ice and any remaining ingredients until smooth and creamy.
Some people say “you can’t taste the spinach.” That’s not totally true, it has a very mild flavor that’s easily over-powered by the fruit flavors. I found this smoothie to be refreshing and filling.
You can also add strawberries, but I heard it turns it brown. I liked the vibrant green color, so I stuck the strawberry on the side. This smoothie is quick and easy, and can be tweaked so many ways. If you use frozen fruit, then you don’t need the ice cubes.
In the smoothie pictured, I used spinach, vanilla almond milk and ice, garnished with a fresh strawberry. I did not use the syrup or yogurt because the Vanilla almond milk is very sweet.
Create your own Smoothie with your favorite fruit and let me know how it turns out!
