Its time to "Green" Your Smoothie

I realize I've been on a health kick lately.

My husband met his weight goal recently which was a huge accomplishment for him....I did not. That is a problem.... This plateau thing is for the birds...

Anyways, while weight loss isn't the only reason - I've had a wonderful time at the farmer's market recently - sometimes you do indeed need a little chocolate in life. We'll save that for Chocolate Friday. For now - its time to green your smoothie. I've recently come to have a lot of leftover fresh local spinach in my possession. You can only eat so many spinach salads, sauteed spinach and spinach in omelets.

So I tried adding it to my smoothie for breakfast. All of the iron with really little of the spinach taste. Its like adding a vitamin into your actualy smoothie. You don't really taste it.

Try it if you have any leftover spinach. More nutrients in your smoothie can't be so bad. Consider it your own Vitamin Booster free of charge.

1 cup spinach
1/2 cup low fat vanilla (or banilla my current favorite) yogurt
1 cup strawberries
1 cup skim milk

Blend all ingredients. (Depending on how thick you like your smoothies you may want to add more milk)

Enjoy all your newfound energy and conquer your day.


  1. I'm going to try this, this morning! I am 24 lbs shy of dropping 100 lbs and hitting my weight goal. That's awesome news about your hubby! You will get there too, it's harder for us girls! I really enjoy reading your blog. The pictures are absolutely beautiful!

  2. I can tell my 4-year-old it's a Monster Smoothie or something. Great idea, thanks!
