Lena's Simple Green Smoothie is so delicious, you'll forget it's healthy. Want to know the best part? It takes 2 minutes to prepare and consists of only 4 ingredients and that's including the water!
I know what you're thinking...another green smoothie. There are so many combinations to make a green smoothie. The possibilities are endless. This one - introduced to me by my daughter - is incredibly simple to prepare and very refreshing. You might consider this the perfect green smoothie for beginners.
The ingredients are:
- Baby spinach
That's it. No, I'm not kidding.
Just throw everything in your blender and blend until smooth.
The outcome is a beautiful rich green smoothie that's sweetened only by the natural sugar of the fruit, which makes you forget there's spinach in the smoothie. I buy a big bunch of bananas and the moment they get spotty, I store them in the freezer. Using frozen bananas in smoothies makes them taste that much better.
I'll be honest, the first time Lena made it for me, I was hesitant. I told her I'd pass. With her continued persistence, I gave it a go. I mean it's only fair since I make her try my concoctions. She made a believer out of me.
This makes two servings. It stores beautifully in the fridge in case you want to save one for later. Give it a shake or a stir and you’re all set. It will make anyone a lover of green smoothies. The only way to believe me is to make it.
