Healthy Winter Smoothie
This is the version of the “Green Monster Smoothie” that I have been making lately
I put in about 2 cups of pineapple juice, a handful of frozen blueberries and strawberries or raspberries, 2 bananas, and I top it of with 2 big spoons of greek yogurt (honey flavor) and a big drizzle of honey. Then I load the blender with fresh spinach and blend.
I make sure it all gets nice and smooth and when I can no longer see any leaf remnants, I know it is ready. The secret to not tasting the spinach is the pineapple juice and the honey. You can use any kind of yogurt but greek yogurt packs protein and the honey flavor is yummy. The honey takes away the bitterness of the berries and it is a natural antioxidant that is great to add in the winter months.
