Spring Green Smoothie

Spring cleaning. Good for closets, goodwill, the salvation army, but what about our GI tract? It’s no secret that winter….winter has been extra long this year and months of comfort food are making us all sludgy on the inside. This smoothie is packed with those great nutrients from spinach plus some calcium and protein to keep you going and a touch of sweetness that isn’t over powering. The slightly sweet flavor of the honey really shines without making you think you’re going to have to chew all that spinach.

I had been at brunch w friends and one mentioned that she had tried a ‘green juice’ of sorts, but noted it was too gross tasting and ‘stringy’ to finish. Ew….I like a smoothie as much as the next person, so I gave this one a whirl in my blender and trust me: it’s not stringy. I don’t want to chew my smoothie.

You’ll need:

5 minutes tops

  • 2 cups spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup non-fat greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey (or use honey yogurt)
  • 1/2-1 cup milk of choice (depending on how thick you like things)
  1. In a blender, blend this up until it’s the consistency you like!
