So I’ve never had a green smoothie. You know what I’m talking about, those super healthy, veggie and fruit filled drinks that people are gulping up all over the place? Yes, this dietitian has never had one. Why? I have to admit I’ve always been a bit
unsure afraid to guzzle down a cold, thick, green liquid. Well my friend Sally over at Real Mom Nutrition posted about one the other day on Facebook and she really made it sound good. So after sharing my concerns with her, she reassured me and I decided to Go For It!
Why am I telling you all of this? Because it’s time for this month’s Recipe Redux and the topic is drinks! As I said, I was inspired by my friend’s Peaches and Vanilla Green Smoothie but mine is a bit different. I have to admit, it tasted pretty darn good and I couldn’t even taste the spinach. However I didn’t actually drink that much of it. Not that I didn’t want to but because as soon as my 8-year-old walked into the kitchen, she took a sip and didn’t stop until it was gone. I hope you enjoy it as much as she did. Let me know what you think.
- 1/2 cup 1% or skim milk
- 1 medium banana, peeled and roughly chopped
- 1 cup fresh or frozen pineapple, roughly chopped
- 2 handfuls of baby spinach
- Add all to blender and mix until it reaches your desired consistency. (for me that was until I couldn't see any more leaves). :o)
