Easy Peasy Green Smoothie

This is HANDS DOWN my favorite green smoothie recipe. It is so good. And so good FOR you. I had never thought about putting grapes in a smoothie before--but now I never have a green smoothie without them! Trust me and give it a shot. If you absolutely cannot stand the thought of grapes, or if you try it and don’t love it--go ahead and add the same amount of blueberries as a substitute. I always double the spinach in this recipe, too. I love getting my greens in early on in the day, and I feel like in this recipe you can’t even taste the spinach (even if you double it). So, why not? Hope you LOVE this recipe as much as I do!


Ingredients:

1 ½ cups baby spinach

½, 3-inch diameter apple with skin

1, 7-inch banana

½ cup grapes

5 oz. fat-free, vanilla Greek yogurt (shoot for around 80 calories, 0g fat, & 12g protein) (I like to use the Kroger Lite brand. Or Oikos Triple Zero.)

Ice


Directions:

Put all ingredients in blender and process until desired texture is achieved. You may need to add a couple of tablespoons of water in order to get it to blend. Eat with 20 almonds to meet calories listed in nutritional facts below.
