Blueberry Spinach Smoothie
It’s the new year and since 99% percent of people are making resolutions to be healthy I thought this would be the perfect recipe to share today. This year I didn’t make any resolutions. I mean not really, not like I have in the past. I just want to continue to be more health conscious, spend more time with my family and God, and be happy and kind. It’s more like a permanent life goal then a yearly resolution. These are also things I want my children to learn from me. It’s not really that easy though trying to explain to a 3 year old why they should each spinach so instead I just sneak it into smoothies =) It works!
I’ll be making this Blueberry Spinach Smoothie a lot! I have so many frozen blueberries in my freezer it’s kind of embarrassing! I got them on sale over the summer, a carton of organic blueberries for 99 cents! Let’s say I spend around $30 on blueberries that day. My kids LOVE them though and paying $5 in the winter just isn’t going to happen! So I bought a ton and frozen them in small bags so I could use them all winter long. I still have a good amount left so I think I will make it until summer before they are gone.
For this recipes I used yogurt, frozen blueberries, spinach, banana, and honey. They honey is optional but it sweetens it up a bit. This is my oldest son’s favorite smoothies, he could have drank the entire blender! If you are not making this for kids you can through in some protein powder. It always helps me to stay full longer and really hold me over until lunch time.
All you need to do now is blend it all up. You can add milk as needed if you want it thinner but I didn’t add any milk to this recipe.
- Yogurt, 1 cup
