Green Spinach Smoothie

This morning I signed up for an online calorie counting program, My Fitness Pal.  I’m not horribly overweight, but I could stand to lose 15 lbs.  That Coconut Cake is just a little too yummy if you know what I mean….  🙂

So on to healthier recipes:

1- 1 1/2 cups almond milk
2 generous handfuls of spinach
1/2 a banana
5 large frozen strawberries or 1/2 cup frozen blueberries

Other add-ins (optional):

flax seeds
chia seeds
protein powder
dulse flakes

Throw the above ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  Add more dairy free milk if needed.

This recipe makes enough for me and my two little girls.  The smoothie is very green in color, but you don’t taste the spinach.  The banana and strawberries are great for masking the flavor!

This is SO YUMMY!!!! If I put it in a cup with a lid my kids will try it and love it but it's more for me otherwise!!!!! I added ground flax and I used frozen fruit from Costco and I am in HEAVEN!

These were a hit with all 5 kids! I had to make a second batch they enjoyed it so much.

DH and I haven't made smoothies in a long time. I think we'll have to try this recipe.
