I know that if I have this smoothie for either breakfast or lunch, I instantly have 4 (1/2 cup) servings of fruit and 2 servings of veggies (if you use 2 cups of spinach).
Don't let the ingredients or color of the drink shy you away. This is a GREAT beginners recipe. I PROMISE you won't be able to taste the spinach! This makes a 32 ounce serving. It'll be really filling, and really tasty!
Beginner's Green Smoothie
Ingredients:1 cup water (you could also use juice, I just don't want the extra calories)
1 cup light vanilla yogurt
1/2 c. unsweetend natural apple sauce
1 frozen banana
1 heaping cup of frozen strawberries
1-2 cups of fresh baby spinach
- Put the ingredients in the blender in the order they are listed.
If you are doing Weight Watchers (like I am!) this whole drink is 4 points. You may be able to find a yogurt with less points... if you notice the only points in this drink is from the yogurt.
