Johnna’s Green Smoothie

My second smoothie recipe for this blog, and it will certainty not be the last! This is because I tend to have 2-5 smoothies a week. My green smoothie was created during a time when I did not eat enough fruit or vegetables and needed a way to start tricking my mind into eating (ok drinking) them. This green smoothie is beyond delicious, but also provides a serving of vegetables, fruit, and dairy in one drink.

Now don’t be fooled by the green color, this is essentially a fruit smoothie with a punch of spinach.

Ingredients:

2 clementines

½ banana

Handful of spinach

1 cup Greek Yogurt

1 cup water

Pinch of cinnamon

Instructions:

Add spinach, banana, clementines, Greek yogurt and a pinch of cinnamon to a high powered blender.

Add 1 cup of water.

All of the ingredients in the blender.

Place the lid on the blender, and blend until smooth. About 1 ½ minutes.

Let the blender do magic!

Remove lid and pour into your favorite glass and enjoy!

Ok, this is one of my favorite cups ever. My #GOTMILK glasses were a gift for helping out during a dairy convention when I was getting my undergraduate degree.

The Clementine’s, banana and spinach can be placed in a freezer bag/ freezer safe container and stored in the freezer until you are ready to use them. Just add Greek yogurt, water and cinnamon when blending. I have found that a high powered blender works best when blending frozen clementines.
