Green Smoothies

green smoothieHere is a quick post of a recipe that can be a healthy breakfast or snack and incorporates fruits, veggies, and dairy…GREEN Smoothies.  You even get your probiotics with the yogurt.

A green smoothie is made green not by adding some icky food coloring, but by adding some yummy and healthy greens.  You can use spinach, kale, chard, etc.  

We keep raw spinach on hand for salads so that is what we usually put in.  The ratios are up to you, feel free to experiment.  Sometimes I even replace part of the milk with carrot juice.  To make it really rich, you can use coconut milk in place of the milk.

The girls like it and so do I.

Green Smoothie

  • 1 cup fresh fruit (we like bananas)
  • 1 cup frozen fruit (such as peaches, mangos, pineapple)
  • 1 cup raw spinach (packed into measuring cup) or 2 big handfuls
  • 1  cup milk
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp honey (optional)

Place all the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.  Serve.
