A lot of us have made it a new years goal to eat healthier.
A great way to get extra fruits and vegetables in your diet is to drink smoothies.
I like the green ones.
This smoothie is sweet and yummy.
This was introduced to me by my friend Desiree at
She has really great ideas about easy things you can do to eat healthier.
Green Smoothies are one of my favorites.
Desiree's recipe is different then mine.
Here is how I do it.
In case you can't read that the recipe is:
1/3 c. vanilla yogurt (if you use organic there is no added sugar)
1/2 frozen banana
1 handful frozen fruit.
Whatever you like, I bought bag with a blend of
strawberries, mangoes, peaches and pineapple.
A little bit of kale.
Kale is really good for you but I don't use a whole lot because
it kind of tastes like you threw some leaves from your backyard in your smoothie.
In fact make it without the kale the first few times to warm yourself up to it.
A handful of spinach.
A drizzle of water (about 1/2-ish cup)
Blend for about 2 minutes until it's smooth.
This is about enough for 1 adult, and maybe a little child.
When I make it for the whole family I fill the blender all the way to the top.
This recipe is not exact, I usually just throw things in without measuring.
It will also help if you have a good blender.
My kids really love this stuff too.
They drink it right up and ask for seconds.
I have proof, see.
I do have one stubborn son who acts like they are poisonous.
The other three really like them.
So here's to healthier eating!
