Mean Green Spinach Machine

Ya’ll ready to poop like a goose again? I made that comment when I made my crockpot oatmeal. It’s a term of endearment my daddy uses for, uh, “high fiber” foods. ~ giggle

So, a friend had posted about some green smoothies she had tried, check them out here. These looked AWESOME, but I didn’t have all these ingredients on hand. I DID have spinach however, and I was excited!! My roommate turned trainer and fitness guru at Zen Pulse would be proud. Annie’s always telling me, more fiber, more fiber. OK!!! I’ll put the stuff in a smoothie!! GEE WHIZ!

Well?!
She was right!
Don’t tell.

It’s DELICIOUS! And doesn’t taste like spinach! Even though I do love spinach. So give this a whirl and use what you’ve got around the house….. and drink lots of water.
And make good choices.
And wish for world peace.
And make your bed.

Ok, go!

 

Let me know what other spinach-y combinations ya’ll come up with. I’m wanting to try the flaxseed one next. A girl can never have too much fiber. As long as she drinks plenty of water; which I recently learned. Eeek.

I’ve also tried rolled oats, full of fiber, thickens the smoothie, and delicious!

Enjoy!
~Peace, Love, and Smoothie Making Ya’ll!

Mean Green Spinach Machine

Ingredients:

1 banana
1 heaping cup of strawberries
5-6 ice cubes
2-3 T of yogurt (I was out of my fav greek yogurt, so I used sour cream - it was great!)
3/4 c apple juice
2 T honey
1-2 cups of spinach (I really jammed the stuff in there, and it came out really good)

Directions:

Blend it all up! Usually the other thing I hate about homemade smoothies, because I don't have the $5,678,412 Vita-mix blender, it oftens melts and gets kinda gross. This smoothie makes two good glasses, so I put one in the fridge to drink hours later. Well, for whatever reason, it was still icy and delicious!
