Don't knock it 'til you try it..

This is seriously the best thing since sliced bread. 


The spinach smoothie. As disgusting and weird as this sounds, you can't knock it 'til you try it. The spinach smoothie can be as simple or complicated as you wish. You can add blueberries, cinnamon, a dash of cocoa powder, etc.

However, you must know...
 if you truly want to mask the intense flavor of this healthy green machine leafy green, you need to add a 1/2 or whole banana! The banana's strong flavor covers up the spinach taste of spinachy spinach.

I chose a simple spinach smoothie today since I really just wanted to get some veggies in with my lunch and was too lazy to make a salad.

Spinach Smoothie
Serves 1

2 Cups Spinach
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 Banana
Lemon Juice (Optional)

Blend spinach and milk until thoroughly blended. Add banana and ice until thoroughly blended. Serve immediately.

An easy way to get some spinach (loaded with antioxidants, low calories, multiple nutrients) into your diet with minimal effort. Cheers to your health!
