Our family has been enjoying this healthy morning shake for several months now. I always get raised eyebrows when people find out we drink a “spinach shake” in the morning. I’ve converted a few skeptics after the first drink! Try it– I promise it’s refreshing, sweet and delicious!
Kristy’s Really Green Breakfast Shake
1 C fresh spinach leaves (don’t use frozen spinach!!)
2 to 3 overripe, frozen bananas (the more overripe they are, the sweeter!)
1/4 C vanilla yogurt
3 to 4 C liquid (I usually use 3 parts whole, raw milk to 1 part water)
Place all ingredients in a smoothie maker or food processor. Process for several minutes, until drink is completely blended and smooth (you don’t want little pieces of spinach leaves floating around!). Serve immediately. For a dash of orange flavor, I add 1 scoop of Melaleuca’s “Citrus Orange” FiberWise powder. This adds about 6 grams of fiber plus a delicious orange twist to the drink.
