Sweet Green Smoothie

Umm…yum!  This was one of those pins that blew up on Pinterest (from The Beauty Thesis).  You know the ones; you see them every single day on every person’s board.  No?  Maybe I’m the only Pinterest troll.  I wanted to see what the hype was about.  This smoothie was said to give you lots of energy and make you feel good – that’s why I wanted to try it.  I’ve tried way too many green smoothies that tasted like crap, so I’ve been looking for something yummier and sweeter.

I heard that when you go on a juice cleanse or “juicing” you’re supposed to have 2 veggies for every fruit or 3 veggies for every fruit – something like that.  This one is just the opposite.  Your only vegetable is the spinach.  However, it’s delicious.

I felt great from the first sip.  I had lots of energy throughout the day, and was able to drink this rather quickly.  Too many green smoothies have taken me over an hour to try to sip down – nasty.  But this one was great!

  • Spinach
  • 1 apple
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of greek yogurt
  • 5 strawberries – I threw in some cranberries, too
  • ½ and orange
  1. Cut up all of your fruits so your blender won’t go into overtime trying to crush everything.
  2. Add in all ingredients except for your yogurt (My blender had a slow time getting started.
  3. Once blended thoroughly, add in your yogurt.
  4. Blend until combined.
