ABK's Favorite Green Breakfast Smoothie

A Bountiful Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 16 oz cold water
  • 2-3 cups fresh spinach
  • 6 frozen strawberries
  • 1 medium carrot or a handful of baby carrots
  • 1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 1 apple cored
  • 1 ripe banana

Instructions

  1. Pour water into pitcher. Add spinach, strawberries, carrot, blueberries, apple and banana.
  2. Place lid on blender and blend until smooth. I use the #5 setting on my blender which is a 40 second blend.

Recipe Notes

-I like to use frozen strawberries, even when fresh are available, because it makes the smoothie a bit thicker and serves also to make it cold.
-to easily core the apple I set it on a cutting board and make four slices around the core. No peeling needed.
-Melinda taught me this trick, if you purchase spinach and you think it may spoil before you use it up, place the leaves in a Ziplock in the freezer and use the spinach frozen. Same goes for any fruits or veggies you want to use in the smoothie.
