A Smoothie for Dinner!

After getting caught in the rain in the middle of mowing the lawn tonight, I came in and took a fast shower and then came downstairs to figure out dinner. Bryan’s sleep schedule got thrown off over the holiday, so he had a hard time falling asleep this morning (which means I’m letting him sleep and eating dinner alone).

I felt like something cool and refreshing, and knew I needed to get a few more fruits and veggies in, so this is what I came up with (and, boy, was it good!):

  • 1 frozen organic banana
  • 2 1/2c. frozen organic spinach (loose leaf, not packed)
  • 1 1/2 c. fresh blueberries (picked by my sister’s neighbor girl)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 c. organic milk
  • 1/2 c. sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/8 tsp. of cinnamon
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 c. of nutty granola (on top, if desired)
Add all ingredients except the granola to a blender and liquify until smooth. Top with granola and enjoy! Serves 1 meal portion (or 2 smaller portions). The cayenne and cinnamon give it a nice little kick on the finish.
