I found a variation of this recipe in Best Health magazine a while back and kind of forgot about it until a few months ago. While I don’t currently have a fancy blender, I’m able to blend everything for this pretty well with my hand-blender. This smoothie a great way to get the nutrition of spinach into your diet, and if you have it first thing in the morning, it’s a bit of an insurance in case the rest of your day isn’t as healthy. Oh, and you can’t even taste the spinach – promise!

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Enjoy!
