This my friends is a very green strawberry spinach smoothie!
I know, it’s probably not the most appetizing looking smoothie. I really tried to make it look as appealing as I could (hence the pretty polka dotted straw and purple fabric under the glass). I’m not going to lie, I was a little skeptical when I blended all the ingredients up to make the strawberry spinach smoothie and the result was this grassy green looking concoction.
However, don’t let the color of it deter you from making this amazing, refreshing, and healthy smoothie. When I took a sip I was so surprised that it was perfectly sweet and delicious and I couldn’t detect any flavor of spinach in it at all!
To make the smoothie I used a frozen banana, some fresh strawberries, a couple of cups of baby spinach (fresh not frozen), unsweetened almond milk, plain non fat Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, honey for added sweetness, and ice to make it nice and frosty. I stuck all the ingredients in my blender and in seconds I had the greenest smoothie I had ever seen! I bravely took a sip and the next thing I knew I had drank the whole glass. It felt good knowing that on top of getting a couple servings of fruit for the day I also had a serving of vegetables thanks to all that spinach! So if you’ve never had a green smoothie or are looking for a new recipe give this a try I promise the flavor greatly surpasses the not so tempting color!
