So, I figured why not try it? And guess what? The people are right. The smoothie gets a lovely green color, I get the benefit of an extra serving of veggies & the vitamins, and it tastes great!
So I will share with you 'my' recipe for a green smoothie. This is how I made it this morning, but there are so many variations you could try.
Not my picture...found it here. I forgot to take a picture this morning of my own smoothie before drinking it, but this is pretty much how it looked.
Karen's Green Smoothie
1 fresh peach
1 single serving container of honey flavored Greek yogurt
1 handful baby spinach
6 ice cubes
1/2 cup coconut milk
a splash of pink lemonade (the only juice I had on hand)
I think my favorite part was watching my kid's faces when I put spinach in the blender. I think they thought I was joking. Their faces were even better when I actually drank it!
