No-brainer Recipe: Easy Fruits and Greens Smoothie

I don’t know about you, but lately I’ve been feeling the urge to clean out, throw out, and start with a clean slate. My entire life seems out of whack lately, nutrition being part of that.

I am not a smoothie girl, but every once in a while I like to treat myself. This is a great smoothie that packs a lot of nutrition in. Sure, the color is a little scary, but I personally could not taste the spinach in this, which was great. Perhaps if you tell your kids it is monster goop they would try it? Heh.

    Now you almost had me…….and then you mentioned the spinach leaves. I think I’m gonna have to pass on this one. Or just do it without the spinach.

    I would think the granny smith would overpower the spinach. I think it’s a great way to get iron into your system!

    I think it sounds pretty good! I’m not sure my kids would drink it unless I gave it a cool name, like “Smooshy alien brain smoothie”. Then they wouldn’t be able to resist.

    Man, that sounds really good. I’m going to have to try it – even with the spinach.
