February 11th: Super Green Smoothie

I don’t know about you, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone out to eat and thought, ‘I could totally make this at home!’ Well my husband and I are always looking for new, tasty ways to get our greens into our diets without having to spend all day chopping vegetables. I love salads but sometimes I wish I had a chef for all the work it takes to prep them. Anyways… we were at whole foods new smoothie bar and decided to order the ‘Farmers Garden Smoothie’ which includes – fresh squeezed OJ, fresh spinach, fresh kale, 1 banana, and strawberries…. it was delicious! You couldn’t even taste the greens and my son practically drank my entire smoothie. I happen to think that the OJ is a great balance for all those fresh greens. So of course I decided to make it at home… Now I don’t own a fancy blender, just a basic one, so rest assured, you too can make this at home and you will LOVE it!

Step 1: Make fresh OJ with Navel Oranges (purchased from our local farmers market). We use our attachment for the kitchenaid mixer. (You can purchase from the store but the fresh squeezed tastes so much better!)

Step 2: About 1 cup of OJ goes into the blender, then add 2 cups of fresh organic spinach, about 1 cup of frozen strawberries, 1 banana (that I sliced and froze the night before), and 1 cup of fresh kale purchased at our local farmers market.

Step 3: Blend

Step 4: Enjoy!
