STOP! Don’t give up on this smoothie just because it has spinach in it. I PROMISE you that you will not only not see the spinach once you get it all blended up, but you won’t taste it either and with a combo of all of these powerhouse foods in one smoothie you KNOW it’s going to be good for you. What else is awesome is that you can keep some frozen spinach and frozen blueberries on hand so that you can make this anytime. This is so good for you and it tastes good too. Try it, just once for me, pretty please.
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk (soy, skim…whatever you’ve got)
1/2 cup fresh spinach (small handful, sub 1/8-1/4 cup frozen)
1 teaspoon flax seed meal
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Pulse on the ice crush option until the berries are mostly blended, then put on puree for about 2 minutes or until smooth.
What did the family think? I am the only one who has had this, but it was SO good! I know the boys will like it too if I don’t tell them about the spinach because who really wants to drink spinach.

One Response to Blueberry, Flax and Spinach Smoothie
This is actually incredibly awesome!! I didn’t have any yogurt on hand, so I used Almond milk instead of regular milk, probably about 3/4 to a cup or so. Also, my blueberries weren’t frozen, so I added some ice instead for the slush factor. And I used wheat germ instead of flax seed. It still turned out terrific!! Thanks for a great easy recipe. …..and the bonus was that I had an extra boost of energy all day! ;o)
