Green Smoothie for today                                                
Green Smoothie #1
1 banana
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 spinach greens

Smoothies are a fast nutritious meal.  It packs a lot of beneficial vitamins and minerals which keeps you healthy and boost your immune system.  I find I am satisfied and have more energy when I can take the 5 minutes to make a smoothie.  This is the perfect breakfast, lunch or dinner for the busy person who tends to skip or forget meals.  I am on the run today, again, with end of year parties and celebrations at the kids school.  This is my morning meal and I am off!  Have a wonderful day and don't forget to feed your body beneficial foods and skip the junk!


  1. Green smoothies are delicious & I love how energized I feel afterwards. I'll have to try your recipe :)

    1. I always feel VERY energized as well Sage. Let me know what you think of this recipe :-)

  2. Okay... I don't like the look but the ingredients are intriguing. LOL... do you taste the Spinach? If not Id love to try it!

    1. You don't taste the spinach, but you could just as easily use salad lettuce. I taste the fruits. The key to green Smoothies is keeping the ingredients to 4-5 items. That way its not sensory overload but you taste the two fruits.

  3. I recently started adding large handfuls of spinach to our smoothies, and it's been delicious! we can't taste the spinach and the kids still love the flavor and wahoo,I'm so sneaky getting them to actually eat their veggies!

    We love almond milk too! SO delicious and great for a smoothie taste! We also use SILK Fruit and Protein.

  4. This looks really good! I will have to try it!

    1. There are so many wonderful combination! I am posting a few more this week! Let me know if you try Clancy. :-)
