Green smoothies are all the rage! They are healthy and taste surprisingly sweet for the amount of spinach that is in them.
I found this recipe on my friend Jen’s blog. I halved her recipe and it filled our Black & Decker blender that sorely needs replacing. It’s possessed!
- 4 cups fresh spinach
- 1 baby carrot
- 2 cups water
- 1 Granny Smith Apple
- 1 Pear
- 1 Banana
- Handful of frozen strawberries
- Handful of frozen mangoes
- 2 Tbs ground flaxseed
- A few squirts of Agave Nectar (I used honey the first time and it tasted great)
- Blend to desired thickness & enjoy!
Even Ada loves this, and I play around with the fruit depending on what I have. Also, after shopping around for agave nectar – I found that Costco was the best deal for a two-pack.
