In these holiday months that start with Halloween and carry on until New Years I am constantly thinking about fun ways to get more nutrients into my beautiful children. One fun way to work with good food is making smoothies.
Recently we were given Organic Girl greens to try. They make organic greens in a number of different varieties. We got Baby Kale and Baby Spinach. I love kale and made a few salads and wilted greens to enjoy with a big plate of pasta. We saved the spinach for special smoothies.
Spinach freezes well. We grab 1/2 cup at a time to make a quick breakfast or yummy snack.
Berry Green Smoothie
- 1/2 cup greens (we like spinach)
- 1 cup liquid (we like almond milk)
- 1/2 to 1 cup berries (frozen this time of year)
- 1 banana
- 1 tbsp sweetener (honey is good, so is maple syrup)
Throw all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth. Taste and adjust for flavor or consistency. If needed add a little water to thin or some ice cubes to thicken. The color can be a little odd if using darker berries. Strawberries give the smoothie a fun taste and keep the color lighter.
|This is it.|
We love our blender and wanted to share because it is so easy to use and very affordable. The blender container is glass which makes it easy to clean.
