How to Make a Healthy Green Smoothie

by Kristi Rimkus

Supplies

  • 1/2 cup baby spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup low fat plain yogurt
  • 5 strawberries
  • 1/2 small banana
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon flax meal
  • Water or ice cubes if needed
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Collect your ingredients. The smoothie is better when ingredients are chilled first.

    Step 2

    I use the Magic Bullet, but a blender works too. Fill your cup or blender jar with ingredients. Add 1/4 cup water or a few ice cubes. Turn blender to puree or highest setting. Blend until smooth.

    Step 3

    If you prefer a very cold smoothie, chill in the frig prior to serving.

    Step 4

    Enjoy!
