Spinach Smoothie - Part Three


If you've been reading this blog for some time now, you already know that we love our spinach smoothies around here.  If you've tried them, you're probably already addicted too.

The kids love the taste.  I love that it's a great way to get in a lot of nutrition quite effortlessly. 

Over time, we've all discovered our favorite spinach smoothie concoctions.  I've shared Noah's favorite smoothie recipe and my spinach smoothie recipe.

Here is Caleb's.  It has both orange juice and yogurt in it which give it a nice tang.  Enjoy!


Spinach Smoothie by Caleb from A Little Spinach

1/2 cup of low fat vanilla yogurt *
1/2 cup of orange juice
1 giant handful of spinach
1 heaping tablespoon of ground flaxseed
3 - 4 ice cubes
1/3 - 1/2 of a frozen banana - optional (nice if you want it thicker)

Blend all together.  This makes one large glassful.

*  Our tip for purchasing yogurt:  When looking for yogurt, make sure that you can read and understand all of the ingredients.  Many yogurts are filled with some pretty funky stuff.

  1. Yum! This is one of our favorites, too...kind of like an Orange Julius. :)

    Also, had Smashed Yam and Black Bean Quesadillas yesterday (out of WLN cookbook). They were delicious!

  3. I'm on the cross trainer right now but when I go upstairs for breakfast I am going to make a spinach smoothie! We use greek yogurt in ours and I add a scoop of vanilla whey protein. Yum! It's delish!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. This sounds good too. I have also tried doing raspberries instead of banana and/or orange juice. I'll have to try this version too. :)
