Fruits and Greens Smoothies

by Divine Domesticity on February 24th, 2009

I don't know about you, but lately I've been feeling the urge to clean out, throw out, and start with a clean slate. My entire life seems out of whack lately, nutrition being part of that.

I am not a smoothie girl, but every once in a while I like to treat myself. This is a great smoothie that packs a lot of nutrition in. Sure, the color is a little scary, but I personally could not taste the spinach in this, which was great. Perhaps if you tell your kids it is monster goop they would try it? Heh.

Fruits and Greens Smoothies
Makes 2-3 Smoothies

1 banana, cut in chunks
1 cup cling peaches
1 (6 ounce) tub vanilla yogurt
1/2 granny smith apple, cored and chopped
1/2 cup juice of your choice
1 1/2 cups fresh spinach leaves

1. Place the banana, peaches, yogurt, apple, juice and spinach into a blender. Cover and blend until smooth, stopping frequently to push down anything stuck to the sides. Pour into glasses and serve.

I'm so excited to make this--I actually have all necessary ingredients. It not only sounds delicious, but quite nutritious. I've been sneaking spinach into everything these days, and I can't wait to sneak it into this smoothie! Thanks!

I am typically against all things smoothie because they appear to be healthy and foul tasting. But this one? Mmmmm. I really even like the green color!

Wow, this is one daring smoothie! I've been making my boys a lot of smoothies lately though maybe I could sneak the spinach in there... hmm. Can you taste the spinach very much?
