Happy New Year!
If you have made a New Year’s resolution to start eating healthier in the new year this quick smoothie recipe is for you!
In 2016 my parents gave me a Nutri bullet for Christmas, and that is when I joined the smoothie bandwagon. My first smoothie recipes went to the garbage as they were awful. After many trial and errors I have found the combination that works! It provides a servicing of dairy, veggies and fruit. Yes, this smoothie has vegetables in it and you can not even taste the spinach! Don’t be a hater until you have tried it!
1 cup of non-fat plain Greek yogurt
1 handful of baby spinach
½ of a banana
¼ cup heaping of frozen black raspberries (if you cannot find black raspberries, regular red ones will work)
Pinch of cinnamon
Add spinach, banana, black raspberries, Greek yogurt and a pinch of cinnamon to the blender cup.
Add 1 cup of water to the blender cup. If you like thicker smoothies, add less water and more water for a thinner smoothie.
Place blender blades on the cup, and blend until smooth. About 1 ½ minutes.
Remove blender blades and enjoy!
If you really get into make smoothies here are some time saving tips:
- Prep your smoothies by placing the ingredients (besides the water, yogurt and cinnamon) in freezer safe plastic quart sized baggies. They will last up to 1 month in the freezer.
- Or place the ingredients (besides the water, yogurt and cinnamon) in a freezer safe plastic container. They will last up to 1 month in the freezer and the containers are reusable!
