Introduction

With the strong flavor of orange and strawberries, combined with creamy banana and a surprisingly smooth taste from spinach, you get at least 2.5 servings of fruit & veggies! Pretty awesome.. With the strong flavor of orange and strawberries, combined with creamy banana and a surprisingly smooth taste from spinach, you get at least 2.5 servings of fruit & veggies! Pretty awesome..
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    up to 2.5 cups spinach leaves
    1 medium banana
    7 good sized strawberries
    up to 3/4 cup orange juice

Directions

Put everything in a blender and blend until no more bits of spinach leaf are whirling around. If you want, you can blend the spinach and orange juice together first to make this faster!

Makes about 2 cups.

I like to freeze this in ice-cube trays and dump it in a 'to go' cup for a quick breakfast on the way to work.

    I really like this recipe. Quick tip: Sometimes I buy a lot of strawberries on sale. So, that they don't go bad(which they quickly do) I blend them and freeze them in small individual containers and when I want to make this recipe I have frozen, no sugar added, strawberries. - 3/6/10

    THANKS! I have this in my favorites. My girls saw me make this as my after workout snack, and they wanted one after taking a sip. Now, they are asking to have one everyday. They dubbed these, "Incredible Hulk Shakes"... What a great way to get spinach in my kids! THANK YOU! Very filling, too! - 8/27/08

    Awww! Glad I could be of help! I love the idea of the "Incredible Hulk Shake" - I'll have to remember that!

    This is so delicious! I accidently created a makeover recipe of it on here when I tried to figure out my nutritional info. The only thing I did differently to this great recipe was to add 2 tbsp of ground flaxseed. Yummy! - 1/13/12

    Made something similar this morning. For those who don't think it's filling, you might try adding some oats to the recipe. - 3/27/11

    I wasn't too sure about this, but it was yummy. I used 1/2 cup frozen strawberries and 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries and this upped the fiber and antioxidants. Because of the berries, mine wasn't green but this awful purply color with green specks. It looks gross but don't be deceived it's yummy! - 1/23/11
