I saw this on Pintrest and thought I would share with all you smootie lovers.

 

drink this daily and watch the pounds come off without fuss. The recipe is two handfuls of baby spinach, 1 apple, 1 banana, 1 cup of yogurt, 5 strawberries, 1/2 orange. Blend well and enjoy! I love green smoothies!!! This will give you tons of energy!

While I do think this would be a HUGE energy booster, I'm not sure I could drink it just on the sheer color of it.

Nope, can't do the green.  One of my friends in the building I work in drinks one every morning.  I am always telling her it looks terrible.

That said, I tried the spinach trick this morning.  You couldn't see it at all.  I used triple berry medley though, with black and blueberries so it was already dark.

Nope, I couldn't taste it at all.  Yesterday I remembered that I do have grape juice in the house.  DS loves it so we always have a big jug of it.   I used it instead of milk.  Yum!   I had fresh strawberries and kiwi to add in there too, but I am out of strawberries today.  I told DD that the green flecks were kiwi.  She didn't pursue even though kiwi is totally a different shade of green.

Snack. I have made them for breakfast before, but I usually don't have that much time in the morning. I don't have the greatest blender and sometime they take a little bit to mix up.

Is the yogurt a necessity? I had a bad of mixed tropical fruit in the freezer, and I have milk and juice. Do you think if I used the fruit and some OJ it would turn out okay???

You can add some milk too Guss and it should be ok.  Maybe not as thick unless you had a banana.

Guss, I don't think the yogurt is necessary, but it does thicken it up some.

I have never been a big smoothie drinker... I prefer to EAT my calories! But, if that will give me extra energy, I just might do it. I'll have to get the stuff when I get groceries this week.
