Before Baylor was born, I came across a recipe for a green smoothie. For some crazy reason, I was intrigued. I gathered up my ingredients and created one of the most delicious smoothies I’ve ever had and the main ingredient is….spinach!
I drink these every morning and usually one in the afternoon when I get snacky for something sweet. I make about 8 red cups and keep them in the fridge for easy access. It fills you up and gives you a big dose of fruits and veggies in one tasty drink!
1 large box of baby spinach
4-5 kale leaves deveined
3-4 large carrots – chopped
12-16oz frozen pineapple check
12-16oz frozen strawberries
12-16oz frozen blueberries
12-16oz frozen raspberries
1 bottle Vitamin Water Zero
~In a Cuisinart or blender (I use a Cuisinart), blend spinach, kale, pineapple and Vitamin Water. Add plain water if need be to get the mixture really smooth.
~Pour mix into approximately 8 red cups – each about half way.
~Blend strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and carrots (might need to do in two sets) with hot water until smooth.
~Fill remaining half of cups, cover and refrigerate. Enjoy!
