Strawberry Spinach Smoothies

Submitted by: LAURIES_SISTER

Introduction

This is a favorite in our house. You can't taste the spinach -- promise! Great way to get a couple of servings of fruits/vegetables first thing in the morning. This is a favorite in our house. You can't taste the spinach -- promise! Great way to get a couple of servings of fruits/vegetables first thing in the morning.
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1.5 cups of liquid (I usually do 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup of low fat yogurt; but you could also do coconut milk, soy milk, orange juice, etc.)
    3 large handfuls of fresh baby spinach
    1 cup of frozen strawberries
    2 Tbsps. agava nectar (you can also use honey)

Directions

Unless you have one of those super-blenders (Vita-Mix,etc.), blend the spinach with the liquids first. Once thoroughly blended, add the strawberries and agava nectar. Blend well and serve. Makes two 12 oz. servings.

Number of Servings: 2

  • It really isn't bad. I used strawberry banana yogurt, cocnut milk and mixed frozen fruit, no sweetener was needed. It looked like pea soup,but sure was tasty. - 6/23/14

  • Delish. I added vanilla protein powder and used cantaloupe for a natural sweetener. Overall, tons of spinach, ice cubes, orange juice, cantaloupes, and a few fresh strawberries. - 8/12/13

  • this is my first smoothie ever and it's soo good!I can definitely smell the spinach but the taste isn't overpowering or bitter. I used apple juice for my liquid and a packet of splenda to sweeten! - 3/6/13

  • I usually make a variation of this, adding more berries, soy protein shake powder and almond milk. (this will up ur calories) Sometimes, if I have some on hand I throw in some chopped parsley as well. Lots of protein to keep me from snacking on the wrong foods mid-morning! Thanks for the recipe! - 8/29/10
