Blueberry Spinach Smoothie
I've been feeling a little sluggish lately and thought if I ate more greens, maybe I would feel better :). I've heard of people putting spinach in their smoothies but when I searched online for recipes and saw the photos of green smoothies, I was totally turned off. Then I wondered if I could incorporate an ingredient that would make the smoothie more pleasing to the eye. Blueberries are the answer! I love blueberries and seriously you can't even taste the spinach! Just don't let it sit too long, it will slowly turn green on you again.
1/2 c. milk
1 cup ice
1 cup blueberries
1 cup fresh spinach
1 6 oz. fat free french vanilla yogurt
Combine the above ingredients in a blender starting with milk first. Blend until smooth. *You may want to add up to another 1/2 cup of milk depending on how thick or thin you like your smoothies. Serve immediately.
