Strawberry-Spinach Smoothie

Spinach in a smoothie? Really?! Yes. Really.  
This fruity treat is so tasty you will not even notice that hint of healthy green. It’s an easy drink to whip up for a snack or quick breakfast using items you already have on hand.  Also great with blueberries! If you don’t have protein powder, add a bit of your favorite sweetener or use some sweetened yogurt.  Enjoy!

Strawberry-Spinach Smoothie
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 medium banana
1 cup fresh baby spinach, loosely packed
½ cup plain greek yogurt ( I use 0% Fage)
2/3 cup skim milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 scoop favorite protein powder (like Biochem’s 100%Whey)
6 ice cubes

Combine all ingredients except the baby spinach in a blender until smooth. Add the spinach and blend until just incorporated. (Otherwise you will end up a brown smoothie;). Pour and enjoy. This recipe serves one for breakfast or two for a snack. 

I have been traveling, but now I’m back and have lots of great recipes and ideas to share. Keep checking for more fun entries this week!
