Greener Cleaning Moms Favorite Green and Fruity Smoothie Recipe
|March 1, 2011||Filled under Uncategorized|
I was inspired to make Green Smoothies after reading, Nicole Rivera’s post called “My First “Green Drink” at her blog about eating more healthy. After reading her post, I went to the store and bought the ingredients and made my own version of a Green Smoothie.
- Soy Milk
- One pear
- One mango
- One banana
- Organic Baby Spinach
- A few ice cubes
Then I washed the spinach and fresh fruit. I sliced the pear and left the skin on for more nutrients. The mango was disappointing on the inside and I had to throw it away… (maybe next time we’ll have a good mango.) I peeled the banana and broke it into bite sizes. I put the spinach in the blender first and the fruit on top and then added the soy milk and honey.
If you want exact measurements, I don’t cook that way.
I blended until it was fluffy!
This made enough for 3 servings. My husband and daughter were both asking to try it (yeah we are kinda weird like that… we were eating healthy, when eating healthy wasn’t cool!)
The reviews came in…
Husband said, “I like it! It tastes like a healthy milkshake and it has a fresh taste.”
Daughter said, ” It’s good. It tastes fresh and healthy, and it tastes like summer.”
This made such an easy dinner for us make and eat. Great for busy families.
Now, you might be asking why this in on Greener Cleaning Moms blog? Well make one and see if there is enough fiber in it to cause some intestinal cleaning. Let’s hope it does! We all need more fiber and to keep our intestines clean.
If you make green smoothies, please share your recipe and/or link up to your blog post about your favorite smoothie.
