Green Smoothie

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!

Green Smoothie
  • 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)
  1. 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.
