Salad in a Cup

This morning I was feeling rather stuffed from a long weekend of eating. I crave fresh fruits and veggies if I don’t eat enough and this morning was no exception. So I made a spinach smoothie. I would give you a recipe but that would kill blenderizing fun, so instead I’ll let you know what my drink consisted of and encourage you to make up your own.

Side note: avoid dairy with your spinach as the calcium has been shown to inhibit iron absorption from non-meat sources.Check out more on mineral absorption here.

Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie

  • Spinach (handful)
  • Banana (for a creamy texture)
  • Orange Juice (enough to blend)
  • Coconut Milk (to cut sweetness of fruit)

That’s it, that’s all. Enjoy!
