Green Smoothie [For Beginners]

So… have you fallen into the Green Smoothie craze yet? If not, you really should. My husband and  I have been doing green smoothies for about a year now. I can honestly say that it’s been the best “eating” decision we’ve made as a couple.

I know that if I have this smoothie for either breakfast or lunch, I instantly have 4 (1/2 cup) servings of fruit and 2 servings of veggies (if you use 2 cups of spinach).

Don’t let the ingredients or color of the drink shy you away. This is a GREAT beginners recipe. I PROMISE you won’t be able to taste the spinach! This makes a 32 ounce serving. It’ll be really filling, and really tasty!

Beginner’s Green Smoothie

1 cup water (you could also use juice, I just don’t want the extra calories)
1 cup light vanilla yogurt
1/2 c. unsweetend natural apple sauce
1 frozen banana
1 heaping cup of frozen strawberries
1-2 cups of fresh baby spinach

– Put the ingredients in the blender in the order they are listed.
– Blend!
– Enjoy!

If you are doing Weight Watchers (like I am!) this whole drink is 4 points. You may be able to find a yogurt with less points… if you notice the only points in this drink is from the yogurt.

    I've never tried to make a large batch – I think it would separate and not be as tasty if it was made ahead. I always drink it within an hour or so.

    If you ever try to make a large batch, let me know how it goes. Thanks for coming to our blog!
