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.
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.
