“Spinach in a smoothie!?”

Adding any vegetable to a smoothie, a drink which is falsely reserved for fruit, is likely to leave mouths questioning its tastefulness.

Spinach, lettuce, and kale can all be used to top off a fruit smoothie.  Last summer my co-worker turned me on to green smoothies.  While I was doubtful at first, I reluctantly added a handful of baby spinach leaves to my smoothie, which already contained 2 bananas, 1 cup of mixed berries, and 2 cups of water.

The result? Phenomenal.

It was as close to a Naked Juice smoothie as I could get in my own kitchen— not to mention a heck of a lot cheaper in comparison. While I have always detested spinach — cooked or raw— the spinach flavor disappears with the fruit.

My go-to breakfast for the past eight months, I can almost guarantee I have been waking my roommates up each morning ever since.  Not only do I get my daily source of fruits and vegetables but a boost of energy as well.
