Bluey Smoothie

Bluey Smoothie

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 cups frozen peach slices
  • 2 cups packed, fresh spinach
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Serves: 2

Into a blender, add all the ingredients. Blend until the mixture is smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down mixture if needed. Pour into 2 glasses and serve.

Cooking Tip: Substitute ½ cup frozen spinach for fresh, if needed, adding a few more splashes of milk if necessary.

Keep it Healthy: A few tablespoons of flax seeds, old-fashioned oats, protein powder, or wheat germ can be blended into the smoothie to meet your nutritional desires.

Tip: Using frozen fruit eliminates the need for ice in a smoothie. However, to use fresh fruit in the smoothie, use the same quantities of fruit but add 1½ cups of ice cubes.
