Thank you for visiting!
Summer is here, the sun is out and a heat wave is hitting large segments of the country. To cool off and get your micro-nutrients into your diet in a fun and delicious way, I have the "Cool Greens" smoothie recipe I need to share with you. It's a simple and tasty smoothie. I hope you enjoy it as much as my son and I did.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 serving)
- 1 cup of frozen spinach (I get mine from Trader Joes) My pictures reflects that I used 1 cup of raw greens today. I don't have a preference between frozen and raw. Try them both out and find out what you like.
- 3 strawberries
- 1 carrot
- 1 cup of Almond Milk or Coconut Milk (I am allergic to Coconut Milk so I use Almond Milk)
- Wash your ingredients
- Dump all ingredients into your blender (We used our Vitamix)
- Blend for 30 seconds. (You can blend more or less depending on your preferences. The less you blend the more pulpier your drink. The longer you blend, the less chunky the drink).
My son will only drink them if blended enough for a smooth swallow. He's not feeling the chunky smoothies with a lot of pulp. That's his middle ground and I'm taking it! I'll get veggies into him any way I can get it.
If you tried the Smoothie let me know how you like it. If you put a twist on it, let me know what you did. I'd love to start a community on here where we share our healthy drinks.
Cheers and bottom's up!
