My Smoothie Recipe

Hello everyone! I have a green smoothie recipe for anyone who might be interested.
Black Berry Green Smoothie Recipe
Makes 1 serving
Blending green veggies with fruit makes them taste great and is also a neat way of getting more veggies into your diet.


40 g baby spinach leaves
2 tbsp Orange Juice
1/4 cup filtered water
54 g Banana
72 g pineapple
80 g blackberries
1/4 cup water
In a mixer blend together baby spinach, orange juice and 1/4 cup of water. Blend well until it makes a nice green liquid. You should see a few tiny leaf fragments but that is all. Stop the blender and add the remaining ingredients. Fresh is best but frozen works well too. In this recipe I use frozen black berries. Blend until desired consistency is achieved and enjoy.
By my calculation the total calorie count for the recipe above is 142 calories. I really enjoy these green smoothies. It gives me the sweetness I crave with the veggies and fruits I need. Can you tell I’m really excited about smoothies? Haha. It’s funny how some things are just work for you, and other things no matter how hard you try you just can’t seem to make them work. Smoothies are a definite “fit” for me.
