Sorry. I'm back.
I decided to try to find some blueberry spinach smoothie recipes. Of course, I turned to Pinterest. At first, I was looking for ones without yogurt since I don't keep it here in the house (because I don't like to eat it). But then I broke down and picked up a tub of vanilla yogurt to try this recipe.
Blueberry Spinach Smoothie
- 3/4 c. frozen blueberries
- half of a banana*
- 1/2 c. spinach
- 1/4 c. yogurt
- 4 oz (1/2 c.) nonfat milk
- 1.5 tsp. honey
- 1 T flax seed
- 2 ice cubes
*My banana happened to be VERY ripe, but it doesn't have to be. This was just another great excuse to use up over ripe bananas. It probably also added a bit more sweetness than a less ripe banana.
Toss ingredients in a blender, and blend until well mixed.
Serves 1, serving size: approx. 1.5 cups
We have a Magic Bullet-type blender with single serving cups. This fit perfectly, and it's extra great because then I can just drink it out of the cup it's made in. This was definitely quite yummy! (You can trust me. I'm super picky about healthy things, and the fact that I like this is a good sign!) You can check out the original recipe here. (I halved the recipe, and made a couple of changes.)
