Spinach and strawberry smoothie
I can’t believe I have not posted more smoothie recipes in my blog……. bad, bad girl :-) because these are nutritionally very powerful and extremely easy to make.
We tend to have them a lot, almost everyday since it is super easy to add fruits and veggies to smoothies and kids love them.
If you have kids, or yourself, and find that it is hard to incorporate fruits or veggies into your diet, this is the way to go.
I always have plenty of frozen organic berries like strawberries, and raspberries in my freezer and bananas and spinach in my pantry pretty much at all times, so making them its just a breeze :-)
Anyhow, I will try to post more smoothie variations since the summer is almost here and these are very indicative of this type of weather.

me gusta muuuuuuuuchoooo
I have a whole bunch of fresh strawberries. Any tips on freezing them? Or could I use fresh berries?
I don’t freeze strawberries anymore. I buy already frozen though. Unless they are in season I don’t bother with fresh, organic as well :-).
You can perfectly use mix berries but use some ice to give that smoothie consistency!!

the tags/picts don’t come of. For the smoothie pictures I just turned the bottle so the picture wouldn’t show :-) They are darling though, I think your son will like them and you as well :-)
Your spinach and strawberry combo is new to me. Considering the nutritional value of its ingredients, I’m interested to know how it tastes. The color of the end product reminds me of an avocado shake.
it tastes really good. You won’t notice the spinach flavor at all :-)
So I made a spinach smoothie although I didn’t follow this recipe exactly. I used raspberries and an orange and some vanilla. And the banana. It was definitely easier to eat spinach this way! I think I’ll start making them regularly and follow your recipe next time. Strawberry and banana is a much better combination than what I did. :)
Great recipe! With some whey protein and some spirulina it makes the perfect post-workout food.
These look great! I was wondering though- would you recommend adding plain or vanilla yogurt instead of some of the milk? I
Katie, for sure. That would work really good!! Hope you like them :-)
I was wondering your thoughts on using frozen spinach? I have some that I don’t have a plan for and no fresh spinach at the moment.
I would not use the frozen spinach, it is not the same on this, I think you will not like it sorry :-)

I once e-mailed another concert tickets no service charge to help him because his ads on Craigslist were terrible.
What blender do you use for youre smoothies?
I use blendtec but it is very pricy. You can do with a kitchen aid and still get great smoothies too :-) This is the one I had before I got the blendtec http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CT9XV9C/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00CT9XV9C&linkCode=as2&tag=eago4li0c-20&linkId=UYKRGE6DQOTT2RVP
Why is the sodium so high for this smoothie?
It comes from the almond milk brand I used. I used almond breeze but you can use any other of your choice.
I just saw it yields 4-5 servings. How much would you use for 1-2 servings? Thank you, this sounds delicious.
You can use half the amt :-)
This looks easy & yummy! Do you think I could leave out the bananas or is there a similar replacement?
A hand blender is a basic little kitchen apparatus which is a basic piece of it and makes cooking simple. They not just mix the fixings, there are blenders which help to slash and dice the veggies. Consider blending and dicing the ingredients all alone. A tiring undertaking, right! Blenders do these blending and other tiring tasks for you in minutes and mix the stuff easily. With affordable hand blenders available, you can make anything, from a milkshake to sound smoothies, you can depend on these blenders.
