I had never had green smoothies until a little bit over a year ago. I was amazed at how good they were! We had them every day for a while, and then we stopped. But my husband was just in a Biggest Loser Competition, and we started having them again every day for lunch.
There are so many different combinations that you can do when you make smoothies! I even started my own “smoothie” Pinterest board! If you go HERE, you can click on the fruit or vegetable you want to include, and it will give you a recipe for a smoothie having those ingredients.
Here is our favorite Green Smoothie recipe. We’ll call it the Strawberry-Banana Smoothie, because that is so original.
- 1 cup 100% grape or berry juice
- 2 big handfuls of spinach
- 1 cup rinsed and hulled strawberries
- 2 bananas
- water until desired consistency
- Add juice and spinach to blender.
- Add strawberries and blend until smooth.
- Add bananas and blend until smooth.
- Add a little bit of water until you get the thickness you want.
- Pour and enjoy!
- I get bananas and strawberries on sale. I unpeel 2 bananas and freeze them in a quart size baggie with 2 cups of rinsed, hulled, an sliced (in half) strawberries. Then it is fast to make a smoothie. You can also freeze spinach.
- When the fruit is frozen, it makes the smoothie thicker, so you will need more water. If you use fruit not frozen, and the smoothie is not thick enough, then add a few ice cubes and blend them.
If you are a foodie or write one food post a week and would like to co-host this party for May and June, let me know! I would ask that you run the linky every week on your blog along with either a food post or featuring posts from this party from the previous week. Then you would have to help pin the posts and leave comments on the blogs. I would give you the rules and linky every week as well as email all the participants. I would ask that the people link up would follow you.
