I promised I would share the green smoothie recipe that I used this week. I’ve had it every morning so far and it’s SO good!
In fact, my 2 year old really likes it too. That is, after she quit crying from the extremely loud noise of the blender and the trauma of watching her beloved food turn into green mush. She seems to have made a turn around though. This morning she said “I like it; it’s green”. I asked her if it was yummy and she said “Ya!”. And then proceeded to finish her serving and ask for more. That’s the best review I could ever ask for!
So what is the recipe, you ask? Give credit where credit is due – here is where I found it, from Two Peas and Their Pod. Thank You Two Peas!
Green Smoothie Recipe
Tried and True Green Smoothie Recipe!
Julie’s Notes: I have a vitamix blender, which can pretty much blend anything. A good blender is key. Also – I actually include some of the orange peel when I make mine. Gives a bit more phytochemicals! I bought one bag of spinach and it lasted for 3 mornings of smoothies. I guess tomorrow, I’m going to have to use chard and spinach from my garden!
- 1 large orange (peeled and segmented)
- 1/2 of a large banana (cut into chunks (I used 3/4 of a medium banana))
- 6 large strawberries
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (I use Chobani 0%)
- 1 cup ice
- Put all of the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.
I hope you enjoy!
