Popeye Approved Smoothie
A smoothie a day keeps the doctor away rather than an apple, in my opinion!
I don’t consume nearly enough fresh fruits or veggies throughout the day as I should, so smoothies are my way of sneaking them in. Well, not really sneaking, because I LOVE smoothies. And make one at least 4-5 times a week!
I made a mental note to start saving my smoothie “recipes” which I wrote in quotations, because I always just throw things in without really measuring. So be warned, my smoothie “measurements” usually make about 2 smoothies because I go overboard.
Today’s afternoon snack was packed with antioxidants, fiber, iron, magnesium, and tons of other vitamins and minerals.
1/2 cup organic frozen blueberries
1/2 cup organic frozen strawberries
1/2 cup 2% plain Greek yogurt
1 cup fresh, organic spinach or 1/2 cup frozen, chopped spinach
1 fresh or frozen banana
1/2 cup organic orange juice
1/2 cup organic, unsweetened, plain almond milk
1/4 cup organic apple juice
Add all ingredients into blender. Blend and enjoy! Tip: if consistency is too thick for your blender’s motor, add more orange juice, apple juice, or almond milk.
