So, I am officially in love with smoothies. They are so easy and so delicious! What a wonderful way to load up on fruits and veggies. The best part? My SUPER PICKY 3-year-old loves them! He even saw me cram handfuls of spinach into it and he STILL ate it. In fact, he became very protective of his smoothie and was worried I might not remember to refrigerate it… He insisted that I stop washing dishes and cover his cup and put it in the refrigerator right away.
This week’s going to be smoothie-riffic. The changes each day are just small tweaks. Maybe drastic variations will happen another time. For now, I have a basic formula that works for me, and I’m going to stick with it!
- 1 banana
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
The measurements aren’t really exact. Basically, load up with your fruits, yogurt, and some milk. Add more milk as needed to get it to a liquid consistency. Then stuff as much spinach as you like into the blender. You’ll have to use a spatula to help it down to the bottom. If you just add a cup of spinach, you won’t be able to taste it. If you’re like me and you love spinach, add a couple more cups! Add as much will as will fit into the blender! Click HERE for 11 health benefits of spinach!
It may not be the prettiest thing in the world, but it’s a healthy, delicious breakfast. It keeps me full until lunch, and I feel great when it’s part of my daily routine!
P.S. This makes more than one smoothie, and they keep very well in the refrigerator!
