If you know me, you know I always throw greens into EVERY smoothie I make, because…well, why not? It tastes great and it adds critical nutrients. This one is simple but delicious and makes a great breakfast drink.
Strawbanana Spinach Smoothie
- 1 bag of frozen strawberries
- 1 small coconut water
- 1 banana, frozen (fresh is also OK)
- handful of fresh spinach
- 1 cup apple juice (add more or less to taste)
Adding liquids to the bottom of the blender first, blend all ingredients together until smooth. Enjoy cold.
This recipe makes enough for two good-sized smoothies that you can put in the fridge for the week. You can use more or less apple juice to your taste; it does add sugar, so you could leave it out and either add more coconut water to make up the difference, or just use plain old water. You won’t even be able to taste (or see) the spinach, but you WILL get all the benefits of this leafy green powerhouse: folic acid, protein, and calcium. It’s also iron-rich and packed with antioxidants and fiber.
