Green Smoothie 2
As mentioned in the last post I'm on a mission to get more fruit & veg into our lives via green smoothies for breakfast! YAY!
In the interest of, well, keeping it interesting, I switched it up a little this week! (ok, I know it looks the same as the last one...but promise there's new stuff!!)
Here's what's in this weeks smoothies:
1 banana, chopped
1 handful frozen chopped mango
1 cup chopped pineapple (this time I used frozen pineapple from Trader Joes so there was nothing canned involved- like that much better!)
1 handful blueberries
1 handful chopped kale (center stem/spine removed)
1 handful chopped baby spinach
1 cup non-fat greek yogurt, plain
1 cup cold, filtered water
Also, to save even more time I made ziploc baggies with the chopped banana and other fruits- then all I had to do was add the greens, water & yogurt- blend & serve!
(I layer in this order, not sure if it makes a difference or not...- frozen fruit, broken up, yogurt, greens, water- lid- blend)
Not only did this save time but the smoothies were frostier and we both liked the taste/texture even more :D
We're gonna stick with this recipe for the whole week, next week I'll be adding zucchini & switchin it up again- stay tuned...
