Spinach-Berry Smoothie

Concentrating on limiting sugar comes a desire to increase healthy foods into our meals. Spinach is one of my favorite greens, and I could eat it regularly. The boys, however.............
So, for lunch today, I blended up a Simply Easy and Nutritious Spinach-Berry Smoothie.

Spinach-Berry Smoothie

1-2 cups spinach
1/3 cup milk
6-8 frozen strawberries, or any berry of choice
1 banana

First blend up the spinach and milk, until spinach is very fine. This is important if you don't want spinach chunks. Then throw in the banana and berries. Stick a straw into a cup and drink it up (because drinking through a straw makes it all the more fun!)

The more spinach you add, the greener the smoothie will get. I didn't want to completely scare off my boys from trying it, so I kept it at 1 cup spinach/smoothie. Looks like a pretty regular smoothie, doesn't it?


  1. I love Spinach smoothies! I've been making them since March, and they just make breakfast time so much more fun. I don't have a specific recipe like you though....I just throw stuff in there. Heads up: never, Never, NEVER, put cucumber in. You'll regret it forever.
