Pinterest Challenge - Day 27 - Green Goddess Smoothie

Day 27 Pinspiration - Click here for a link to my pin

Gotta give credit where credit is due - this pin came from Old Soul Charm.

My Version - Green Goddess Smoothie

I know...I know...I didn't do a post yesterday so I owe you two today.  Sorry...life got the best of me yesterday and I was in bed at 9:00 pm (without working out, without blogging and without watching season premieres of my fav shows Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice).  It was just one of those days.

But today is a new day and it's FRIDAY!!!  I even got up and did the 30 Day Shred this morning because I'm going to a festival tonight to drink wine see Randy Rogers Band tonight with my sis :)

Onto my pin...so...I like vegetables...BUT only if they are covered in cheese or butter, combined with cream sauce, dipped in something, covered in dressing, put on a juicy hamburger or thrown in some pasta.  Needless to say just steaming them or eating them raw isn't my favorite thing.  So I try and add in extra veggies where I can and this smoothie hides them in something yummy, refreshing and healthy.

What you'll need:

  • Baby Spinach
  • 1/2 cup or so V8 Fusion Light
  • Frozen Whole Strawberries (No Sugar Added)  
  • Frozen Banana

Put a large handful of spinach and about 1/4 cup of juice in your blender or Magic Bullet (these are great for smoothies).  Blend this by itself until it's smooth.  Do not skip this step or the spinach won't blend up and you'll end up with pieces of spinach in your teeth all day.

Once blended, throw in your strawberries and frozen banana and blend until smooth.  I add a little more juice in if it gets stuck and won't blend.  And I pop my banana in the micro on defrost for about 30 seconds so I can peel it.

And here it is...trust me it tastes MUCH better than it looks and is packed full of stuff that is good for you.  I love them for breakfast and feel extra healthy when I actually have time to concoct one before running out the door.

  1. My green smoothies are never green! I didn't know you have to blend the spinach first! i love making protien smoothies for breakfast and lunch!

  2. I like the idea of blending the spinach first! It's gonna have to be pretty darn invisible if I'm gonna drink it!
