I always feared putting greens in my smoothies, afraid they would come out tasting..well…green. But lately I’ve nailed smoothies with greens and it’s all about balance.
If you can balance your fruits and berries with a little something sweet, you won’t notice the greens. Seriously. My family is drinking raw spinach and not even shuttering.
I don’t have a single recipe I follow because I’m a toss it in and blend kinda gal, but here is a general idea of what this purple goodness came from below. This smoothie turned out so thick we ate it with a spoon. Pure Yum!
Berry Spinach Smoothie
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 dates
- 5-6 ice cubes
- ½ cup raw milk
- 1-2 handfuls of raw spinach
Toss all ingredients into high-powered blender and mix well. Top with your favorite cocoa nibs or gluten free granola. Drink from a glass or eat from a bowl.
