Lately I've been trying to add a little healthy to my smoothies. And, to my delight, they taste pretty good! Once you get past the green color, you can't even tell there's green in there. Now I feel like an official health nut. Here are a couple concoctions I blended up. These aren't really recipes, more like guidelines. Try different fruits you have on hand and switch up the proportions as needed- I'm thinking papaya and mango would be delicious!
Banana Blueberry Blast
3/4 cup fresh blueberries
2 frozen bananas
2 large handfuls fresh spinach
1/2 cup milk of your choice(I used almond milk)
1 cup chopped fresh or canned pineapple
1 frozen banana
2 handfuls fresh spinach or other greens(might not want to use mustard greens though...)
1/2 cup milk of choice(coconut will make this like a pina colada!)
Makes about 2 servings(or 1 giant if your really hungry)
Blend until smoothe and enjoy!
Do you have and ways to sneak extra healthy into your meals? I'd love to hear about them!
