We’ve been talking a lot lately about going green, but now it’s time for a green monster smoothie. That’s right, we’re taking green to a new level. Try this easy recipe, courtesy of Sing for Your Supper (check out this fantastic cooking blog when you get the chance). Before you go running at the sight of green, the blog will tell you that you can’t taste the spinach, but you will benefit from its numerous benefits: “Spinach is high in calcium, vitamin A and iron, to name a small few. This smoothie is a great solution for people wanting to get their daily fill of fresh fruits and vegetables; it’s SO good for you.”
Green Monster Smoothie
1 banana, roughly chopped
4 or 5 strawberries
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1 small peach, peeled and roughly chopped
1 heaping cup (or more) fresh spinach leaves, thoroughly rinsed
splash vanilla soy milk
1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 cup crushed ice
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
*this recipe makes a very large smoothie–two could easily share.
