Introduction

I made this because my children are anti-healthy food of any kind right now, and with the summer heat this is a great way to make sure they (as well as I) get the nutrients needed that often are lacking, especially when everyone has a sweet tooth!

This is great as a meal replacement if you're in a rush, but I recommend having it with a good piece of protein, like chicken breast or an egg-white omelet.

Ingredients

    7-8 Rasberries, fresh, rinsed
    1/2 large banana
    6oz Strawberry Yogurt, fat free (I used Yoplait Original - 99% fat free)
    1 cup Skim/Fat Free Milk
    1/2 cup spinach, fresh, rinsed (used fresh baby spinach)
    1 leaf - Green Leaf Lettuce
    1 med apple, fresh, rinsed, whole or sliced

    Blender
    Juicer

Tips

The juice comes out looking like a coffee color, which to the kids resembled chocolate. This freezes VERY well and managed to get my daughter to eat one and she had NO clue how healthy it was.

I drank it around lunch time and it filled me up so I wasn't even hungry for an entire lunch.

You can subsititute the rasperries for strawberries, blueberries and adjust the flavors of the yogurt as you like. My daughter has a sweet tooth, which is why I used the strawberry yogurt.

I hope you enjoy!


Directions

1) In Blender, add Rasperries, Banana, Yogurt and Milk
2) In Juicer (if you don't have those new super blenders) -
a) Turn on Juicer
b) Wrap Green Leaf Lettuce Leaf around the fresh spinach to make a ball & drop into juicer
c) Immediately add whole or largely sliced apple behind it to get all the juice out from the greens.

3) Add this juice to blender
4) Put the lid ON the blender ( I know some forget sometimes LOL)
5) Use the high speed options - Frappe or Puree are good.

Pour immediately into 2 glasses, about 8 - 12oz each, OR pour into popsicle molds (yields about 6 skinny pops)

Consume immediately or freeze for dessert or anytime!


Serving Size: Makes 2 servings to drink or 2-4 servings for frozen pops for the kids
