“Eat your spinach, you no good infink. Eat it. EAT IT. Eat it.”
Poopdeck Pappy

I’m not a big fan of salads even though everyone things I must be because I am a vegetarian.  Nope.  I can’t find a dressing I like that isn’t five billion calories.  Now, if you add nuts – I just move the leaves to get to the pecans.  Then I want more pecans.  I’m not good about getting my good greens in a salad.

Then I found smoothie recipes using spinach all over Pinterest.  But with every healthy make-at-home smoothie recipe, there were bananas in it.  I don’t like bananas in everything.  Or peanut butter.  Just makes me want peanut butter sandwiches.

So I tweeked a concoction and made it my own, and I love it!  Try it.  It looks fizzy and disgusting, but it is good for you and tastier than dry salad.

Spinach Smoothie of Awesomeness

  • 6 cups spinach
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 6 oz plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • Splenda, to taste
  1. Blend almond milk, Splenda and yogurt until liquid.
  2. Add spinach in batches, making sure it is incorporated between batches.
  3. Poor into chilled glass.

The important thing is making sure the drink is cool – not warm or room temperature.  Changes the whole experience, believe me.
