Getting My Smoothie On! (Mar. 4, 2010)

Yields 4 servings.
Blend the following:
2 c. fresh spinach
1 c. plain low fat yogurt
1 c. cranberry juice
1 frozen banana (roughly chopped)
1/2 c. pineapple
1/2 c. frozen blackberries
1/3 c. frozen raspberries
1/3 c. frozen blueberries
12 baby carrots (roughly chopped)
1/4 c. sliced almonds
2 Tbsp. flaxseed
3 Tbsp. agave nectar (or honey)

So good! I make my smoothies the night before and just give them a
shake the next morning so I can drink one on the way to work. I know
veggies in the drink sound weird, but they totally hide under the
berry flavor and give you extra vitamins and minerals!

Bon Appetit!

You can also add 8 dried plums (prunes) to this for a little extra sweetness. If you do, that’s an extra 40 calories/0 fat/11 g carb/.4g protein per serving.

  1. Sounds delicious…except for the pineapple. 😉 I’ll leave that out. I would have never thought of the prunes but what a great addition!
