Joe and I have been making smoothies a lot lately. It’s usually so hard for me to get in the recommended amount of fruit and vegetables (I have a hard enough time trying to drink enough water… I never do!) so I decided that adding a smoothie a day should help! Green smoothies are my favorite, and, though they’re not Joe’s, I make sure to put enough fruit in his so that it tastes extra sweet (he likes mango in his). I feel like the best thing about smoothies is that you can’t really go wrong but I still like to use a recipe as a guideline so I thought I’d share what I’ve been making the most lately!
1 cup coconut water (I use a coconut water & pineapple juice mix)
1/2 cup spinach, rinsed
1 cup blueberries
1 handful frozen strawberries
Add the coconut water to the blender and layer in the rest of the ingredients. Blend well. Enjoy!
I’m hoping to try adding some almond milk this weekend! I’ve never tried it but I’ve heard really great things and I found a recipe for a blueberry basil smoothie that includes almond milk and sounds delicious! I’ll let you know how it goes if I make it! Happy Friday and have a great weekend!!
