My Favorite Spinach Smoothie {don't be scared}



Please do not be scared by the title, and for your own good stop making that grossed out face :). I have been reading a lot about spinach in smoothies, I decided to give it a try.  I was extremely hesitant...but it is hard to look past that one cup of fresh spinach has:


7 calories
0g Fat
1g Fiber
1g Protein
0g Sugar
TONS (yes, that is mathematical) of Vitamin A & C




For this smoothie you will need:


1/3 Cup of Plain 0% Fat Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup Fresh Strawberries, Chopped
1 Small Banana, Sliced
1 Cup Fresh Spinach
1 Truvia Packet
Couple Ice Cubes


Place everything in a blender, and blend away!  I have a baby blender...




This was a picture from the first time I made this smoothie.  I very quickly found out my baby blender could not handle all of this at once.  So I start with the yogurt and strawberries, and then I add one ingredient at a time.  :)  You cannot even taste the spinach, and you get all the wonderful nutrients!



Now just add a pool...




My current reading addiction...




and I am a happy girl!  Have a fabulous week! :)
