Another green recipe for St. Patty’s! This is one of my favourite smoothies and I tend to have it quite often. I love my fruits and veggies, and I think of this concoction as a way to celebrate them both! Perfect for breakfast or a snack, this smoothie delivers a bevy of nutrients, plus 3 servings of produce and two servings of dairy. The green colour comes from the 2 cups of added spinach, that you can’t even taste! Don’t let the spinach stop you from making this! Believe me when I say it is tasty.
Extreme Green Smoothie
- 1/2 cup frozen banana slices
- 1/2 cup mixed berries
- 1/3 cup yogurt ( like Activia’s raspberry or prune)
- 1/2 cup 1% milk
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ginger
- drizzle of honey if desired
Blend banana and milk together, until all banana chunks are removed. Add in berries, cinnamon, ginger, and yogurt. When well blended, throw in spinach and honey and blend for a few minutes more until a beautiful green colour develops. Add more milk if you prefer a runnier smoothy.
Pour into a tall, iced glass and enjoy!
