Delicious Greeen Smoothie

UPDATE: You can now find even more healthified recipes & tips at www.healthynbalanced.com.

 

This smoothie is super tasty, but comes out looking a little ugly.

It’s a great way to get your day started or to give you a little boost during what should be afternoon naptime. :)

What’s so great about this smoothie?

Spinach is loaded with vitamins and nutrients, one of which is the amazing disease-fighting antioxidant beta-carotene.

Strawberries are loaded with Vitamin C.

Bananas are a great source of potassium and vitamin B6.

Ingredients:

2 handfuls spinach (or kale)

1 banana (fresh or frozen)

15 strawberries or blueberries (fresh or frozen)

1-2 tsp vanilla (depending on your taste)

1 cup of water

4-5 ice cubes

A couple shakes of cinnamon

Agave Nectar or Honey, to taste (Start with one tablespoon and add from there accordingly.)

Throw it all in the blender and blend on high until smooth.

Note: Be sure that your banana is ripe but not too ripe (starting to turn brown). If you use a banana that is too ripe, you will need to add more sweeter (honey or agave) to taste.

This recipe has been adapted from Dr. Axe’s Kale Shake.

Hello There ! My name is Tiffany and I am on the journey to find balance in life! Now, I’m not talking about anything kooky or mystical, but real true balance and health in all areas: physical, spiritual, and emotional. I figured I was not the only one looking for these things, and thus this blog was born. I am not an expert in all things healthy nor is my life 100% balanced. However, I have been on this journey for a quite a few years and have learned some things along the way. One of those things is that the start of a healthy and balanced life is a relationship with Jesus Christ, my Savior, my Friend, my Strong Tower, and my Balance in those completely unbalanced moments. If you’d like more information on knowing Jesus Christ, please click here http://www.gotquestions.org/personal-Savior.html Welcome Friend, I look forward to our journey together.
