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.
