I'm a vegetarian but I don't really like eating raw veggies... and also don't snack on fruits often enough unless they're cut up for me. Like you know... when mom does it 👼. So, to ensure my body is getting the nutrients it needs (especially on busy days), I'll make this light & fresh green smoothie.
COCONUT WATER - 2 cups
BABY SPINACH - 3 cups
MANGO - 1/2 cup
PINEAPPLE - 1/2 cup
BLUE BERRIES - 1/4 cup
RASPBERRIES - 1/4 cup
BLACKBERRIES - 1/4 cup
BANANA - 1 medium size
PEANUT BUTTER - 1 tablespoon
BLEND BLEND BLEND & HAPPY NOMM'ing !
Feel free to play around with the recipe depending on the produce you have in your fridge and decrease ingredient portions for less quantity - this particular recipe yields a little more than 32 ounces (which is a lot for some!).
You can also thin out the smoothie with:
- Coconut water
- OR Regular water — especially if you're avoiding the extra sugar and calories
- Ice — to keep your smoothie cold
- Excellent for a meal replacement
- Easy, fast and delicious way to consume a large quantity of fruits & veggies!
